The weather is doing its level best here to get us to winter in a hurry. I am a bit unprepared. On Monday, I pulled my winter jacket out of the back of the closet, put it on and the zipper came apart. Last winter, the pocket zippers died, but I could live with that. Now, short of safety pinning my jacket shut, I have no good alternative once the blustery winds blow across the tundra that is the parking lot at work.
Last night POSSLQ and I went on a jacket hunt: REI, Herberger’s, Kohl’s, Gander Mountain. No luck. After that I turned to good old LLBean. After an hour on the phone with a customer service representative (may I just say here that LLBean consistently has the best, nicest customer service reps *ever*), I think I may have found something:
but, of course, everyone else already ordered one, so it is backordered and won’t be here for 2 weeks.
Everyone needs to think warm weather thoughts until then.
