The impact of life in Chi-beria
The cold brought about two unexpected results ...
• My Sporto boots -- which retailed for less than $50 more than five years ago -- have begun to crack over the toes. The fake leather just couldn't take the extreme cold. I'm looking for another pair. I think they were a terrific bargain.
• My health club suffered a water main break yesterday. Day after day of running all that hot water through frozen pipes finally took its toll. I was halfway over there to workout when I got word. I compensated by having a salad for lunch and felt quite virtuous.
It'll be in the 30's today. Life is back to normal.
