*As if I really needed one
So, Irene's a-coming. Which means: cute rainwear! Here's my shopping list:
1. Lipstick red patent rain hat. When hoods alone won't cut it.
2. Patagonia Torrentshell jacket. I love me a classic trench, but torrential downpours call for a a serious waterproof jacket. Picked mine up on sale at CitySports here in D.C.
3. Colorwheel umbrella. Finally! Some justification to buy this umbrella, which I've loved for years. The perfect antidote to a gloomy day.
4. Maine hunting boots, LLBean. Yes, wellies are great. But these rugged, lace-up LLBean boots give instant storm-survivor cred, plus will be perfect should Snowmaggedon II descend later this winter.
Oh, and a flashlight, PB&J and a stockpile of movies. We're ready!
