Baby It's Cold Outside
P1190029

Actually, it's warm today, or above freezing anyway, but we have more snow forecast for Tuesday, and even if Monday is as warm as today I don't think all the old stuff will melt before then. For the record, we've had snow on the ground continuously since before the winter solstice. Tomorrow is Imbolc or Ground Hog Day depending on how pagan you are. So yeah, and entire eighth of the year with snow.'

Jomkwan was looking forward to seeing snow for the first time so much this past fall. I recently asked her how she was liking it. Her response was that it was "crazy cold". It sure is. It has been a pretty bitter January on balance, and as usual Jomkwan doesn't let her lack of English vocabulary get in the way of expressing herself.

In other news, I love my boots. They're from LLBean, but it seems that they're not on the website anymore, which is a pity because I was just about to link to them with a glowing endorsement. In short, they kept my feet warm and dry last week when we had several inches of snow topped off with a good amount of rain, and they did it without being ugly or too heavy. You can't ask for more than that.

That's a very cute picture, and Richard really admires the hat.

I'm hoping that today's warm temperature doesn't mean that the parking lot at my office will be a solid sheet of ice again. I find it's manageable with YakTrax, but most of the people at my office don't have them.

That would explain why I'm sick of it. This is Boston, a continuous eighth of the year of any weather is too much.
