That's good news in Baltimore...that should curb the murder total to start the 2014.

 

235 murders in 2013 is a lot :( 

 

Baltimore is a sweet town and home to the company I work for but I'm not sure what's up with all the killing.

Some things never change...I doubt it will help.

You guys make me laugh with this talk of "cold weather." The last two weeks, its been -40F everyday here (with the next two week forecast looking the same), with Dec.30th reaching -60F, colder than the surface of Mars for that day.

That's totally true Nakedsnake but it really sucks when you've got friends down here visiting and it's 45F :) and they want to go to the beach!

 

Plus, what are you doing up there? Last time I was a Costco - I checked the parking lot - there's apparently no one left in Canada under 65 (New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec, New Foundland & Laborado, Nova Scotia, and Manitoba, license plates all in one parking lot)

 

Were are you at by the way?

Goose - you live in my old zip code! I was in 21224 for a couple years back in 2010-2012. But I feel tampa's "pain" now. I went for a run at 5:30am this morning and it felt freezing...well freezing for Florida I guess.

LoL. Currently 58 with a high of 71 in San Diego today.

 

I too am kind of curious, how the Alden's hold up in -60 degree weather.

i find both true to size.  Grant is on the larger side of true to size and, it seems, a minority size down 1/2 size with Grant.  Grant seems to me to be a straighter last compared to Hampton, meaning that Hampton feels more pinched in the waist and has more uplift in the arch than Grant.

And I never wear any shell when its that cold. I wear something that is like a Sorrel, or lined bean boot. Shells, in my experience, just aren't warm enough, even with a wool sock. Coolest I wear any shell is -13F, below that, I bring out the big boots. I have worn my shell in sub zero weather however, in knee deep snow, on several occasions, and they have done well. They look a little rough after, but a quick brush and buff, and they are back to new. The boots in question have a topy sole applied, for those interested.

 

And for those curious, I am from Manitoba (your comment about everyone being over 65 in Canada is actually fairly accurate haha). I spent Dec.30th, in the most Canadian way possible. Drove out to a friends cabin, and built a quinzy, so we would have somewhere warm to drink beer and smoke while we bbq'd. It was actually so cold at one point, that my friends drink of a straight rye, froze into an ice block while he was drinking it. I've never seen alcohol do that before.

Alden DC has a Ravello chukka in 12D (Barrie) if anyone's interested. No 12.5D unfortunately. There are other sizes too, although not sure what.
post #70275 of 88000

Someone needs to jump on these asap.  I would but they are too big...

Someone will be extremely happy!
