My BOGS have served me well during the past month.
Yesterday was the only day my feet felt a little chilly.
Records have been set for cold and snow fall since the official start of winter.
It's dangerously frigid day today, but Monday & Tuesday of next week will be brutal, as daytime temps will be in the single digits.
