Cold Feet

No matter what, my feet are always cold or wet walking around in this snow.  Sure, Uggs are nice and toasty, but they’re not waterproof and the slushy snow soaks right through.  Rain boots, or wellies, are great because they are a little taller (helping in those 3-foot-deep snow drifts) and waterproof, but they’re not insulated so your feet can get cold.

Has anyone out there found the perfect boots that will keep your feet dry and warm in the snow drifts?  Clearly this snow isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so I think it might be time to invest in a new pair.

Foggy Bottom, The Daily Feed, WTF?!

SUV vs. Traffic Island

Snow. It turns us into adventurers. Some of us bundle up to walk the chill, white, stormy landscape like Arctic explorers, braving wind and cold for photos or milk and bread.

And others among us get adventure by roaring out of parking spaces and skidding over slush so that our big black Nissan Pathfinder SUVs end up jumping service road traffic islands in Foggy Bottom, skidding further to straddle the traffic islands like a large, obnoxious, diagonal monorail, before finally triumphing over traffic regulations and common sense.

Snow. It also turns some of us into bemused spectators.
