The weather is depressing these days, mainly due to the negative double digit temperatures and the strong winds. Snow storms just add to the torture. As much as I hate UGGs (they are hideous) , I swear by them now. Those boots made my feet really warm and that's all that matters. Walking on snow or slush with the wrong shoes ain't fun. Waking up early in the morning is also an ongoing problem during mid-winter. LOL.
