What. The. FUCK.

This is just wrong. On so many, many levels.

I came into work while it was raining. When I left eight hours later, it was fucking SNOWING.

Snowing. In October. Before Halloween.

I had to scrape my car off. In October.

I know, I know: "Welcome to New England!"

I need some warmer, water-proof shoes.

You're my first blog of the morning because I KNEW you'd be more depressed about this shit than even I!

Heat up them rocks, I suspect my shoulders are gonna need work from all the shoveling.

Welcome to New England.

When I was still young enough to trick-or-treat, costumes were always sized to fit over a winter coat and potentially snowpants as well.

Around 1990 we had 14" of snow on Hallowe'en night.

Never had a Halloween in North Dakota without wearing a snowmobile suit under my costume. I suggest Goretex, lots and lots of Goretex and wool.

BTW if you want to send me size and vague desires (like "Coat" or "Waterproof Shoes")

I'll see what I can do this weekend with my Dad just starting his first week of the season at LL Bean.

Drop me an Email by Sunday Morning and I might come up lucky!

How the HELL did you get snow before us?

Old NFO said...

LOL- Yep, welcome to New England Christina!!!

I highly recommend insulated work boots for winter wear rather than the standard "winter boots". A good pair of work boots is water proof, well insulated, and has much better tread than half the fancy winter boots sold.

Though Weerd's suggestion of LLBean is a good one.

Thanks for all the commiseration, tips, and reminiscences, Folks!
I sure as hell hope that this winter won't be as bad as last year's...d'oh!

Weer'd, will do!

You could wear something like these, http://www.overshoe.com/Pages/default.aspx
The insulated ones are very, very warm.
A little pricy, maybe.
Although you get what you pay for.

I got some of these for the winter...and I live near your old place so I'm not expecting quite the same weather that you will be getting, but if we have a repeat of last year I'm prepared. I HATE cold wet feet. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/guide-gear-waterproof-snow-ride-boots-with-600-gram-thinsulate-ultra-insulation-white-gray-light-blu.aspx?a=703113

Warm, weather proof boots are a necessity up here. You'd be amazed at how many people I see walking through snow wearing sneakers.

Warm socks too. Wool is best.

And a nice winter Parka as well.

Welcome to New England.

Thanks, Everyone!
TOTWTYTR, I have a lovely parka and snowpants. They will keep me toasty. But I definitely need some proper footwear!
