Ummmm kind of a screwed day, but a great day to figure out whether I like the Newton Boco Sols or not.
We woke up to it snowing quite heavily, which made walking outside an adventure since the plow hadn’t gone by yet (it came while we were out there), then the snow stopped around 9:30 and left just enough in its wake that I needed to snow blow the driveway.
Not really a big deal, but still something else added to the gotta do it list. By the time I got done with the driveway, we had to take Bennie on his 2.0 mile walk to the end of the road and back. Which also gave me a good chance to check out the road conditions.
A lot of white ice from where they plowed and snow was covering the ice still left-over from the last ice storm. So walking was fairly tricky – again. During all this I was wearing the Boco Sols and they were impressing me, especially now that I have figured out that I can not wear socks with a top seam with them – it just doesn’t end well for my toes it seems.
I fixed the foot with a bit of athletic tape so that the rub wouldn’t bother while walking and got out my Darn Tough merino wool socks and didn’t hear a peep out of the foot and that owie at all the rest of the day.
