my boots, which had held up quite well, have proven themselves to be not watertight, i.e. when entirely submerged up past the ankle they do indeed, leak.
luckily i fond this out ont he way home from alex under lastnight. i'm lucky a) that it wasn't on the way TOO alex under and becuase b) i took an extra pair of socks to work today. and i rolled my pants way up high. no shame in wearing floods when there's an actual floor.
and then by the aft it was gorgeous outside! as much as we bitch, the weather in canada sure is entertaining.
