A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall
It is pouring outside.
I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to get to work and not look like a drowned rat. I have my trusty Canadian Gortex Taiga but that only keeps my upper half dry (as you can see here to the right).
My only long coat is a wool winter coat and the temperature according to Yahoo is 14 degrees so too warm to bring out the wool.
I could take a cab but that just seems to be the lame way out. I could take the underground but by the time I walk to the station to catch the train, and then walk from the station to the office, I'm still wet.
What about an umbrella you may ask? Useless here because of the gusty wind, blows them inside out within the first 2 blocks.
I normally wouldn't care about showing up to the office a little on the damp side but I'm hosting a visitor from one of our offices down south so it's important to look professional (i.e. I'll be wearing a skirt and heels rather than trousers and my Doc Martins) and preferably not soggy.
Maybe I will take a cab or a bus. I'll have to let you know. I guess I'll need to do some shopping this weekend.
