Slush adds ten minutes to the trip to school (it is less than a mile and a half from our home). My winter boots are "waterproof," but my socks disagree.
My winter boots were soaked through, so I used my new rain boots. (Thanks, Mom!)
Puddles went past my ankles, but my socks stayed dry!
The Yankee Rebel Tavern is getting work done:
The new house on the east end is getting shingled. The progress on the roof really makes it look closer to finished!
By the next morning, there were no puddles- just ice! My boots still hadn't dried, so I wore my rain boots with yak trax. (I bike slowly on ice, and rainboots have no traction if I need to steady my bicycle). Foolishly, I did not put them on for my last trip from school. As a result, I had my first bicycle tumble on ice this winter. (Everything is fine, I just have a sore knee!) From snow, to slush, to ice- all in a few days. Oh Michigan weather! It has too much fun with us!
