Got Boots?

This is day eight of the 20 Days of Chill writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaa. Please join me as we share a month of reading, writing and discovery. Today's topic is Favorite article of clothing for winter.

In many areas winter means frigid temperatures, shivering, cold feet, wind-blown watery eyes and runny noses. In other places the seasons meld one into the other with barely a flicker of the thermometer. Whether it's parkas or bikinis, there is a staple in your wardrobe without which the season would be incomplete.

Here in North Carolina our winters vary broadly from year to year. Some are mild with only the merest dusting of snow, gone before lunch time. Every so often, however, we get a good (or bad) one, depending on your point of view.

That is when I pull out my favorite article of winter clothing, my snow boots. Not just any snow boots, but the same pair that have kept my feet warm and dry through several decades. I've even featured my old faithful boots here before.

Now I have coats and jackets, hoodies, and scarves and a multitude of gloves, but going out in anything except my trusty snow boots, would be like going out in bunny slippers.

What keeps you warm in the chill of winter?

  1. Happy NEW YEAR!!! I know is late, but life has been crazy. Anyway, I like this post, especially these words, "Whether it's parkas or bikinis...." I laughed.

    What keeps me warm is a space heater in my office. It keeps things nice and toasty. Of course, when I step outside my office, I'm freezing! It's been really chilly here, mainly because we've had so many cloudy days. Of course, those days make me appreciate the sunny ones, even more:~) Well, I'm off to check out your other posts in this new challenge!

    1. Welcome back Sara. Glad to see you back on in the cyber world. Our northern neighbors sometimes laugh at Southerners (especially Floridians) when we talk about the cold. Cold is relative, and 50 would feel cold if your temps rarely fell below 70. But even the cold places can have milder winters sometimes, though not as much as us.

  2. They look toasty warm, which is the most important thing.

  3. Those look amazzzzinnnggggg!!!! I would love a pair. I really should get some good boots... we don't get snow here in Va Bch much... but sometimes we get one of those massive snows and I never have anything good to wear on my feet!

  4. Boots are such an important aspect for anybody who deals with cold and/or snow! And decades? Wow!
