I've been in Maine for almost a year and have only just gotten around to buying a raincoat. I used to have one when I was last living in New England and even brought it to Arizona with me when I moved there. But it kinda went away after a few years of not using it in the desert and I no longer own it.
Anyway, I went to LL Bean and bought a new raincoat. And a new pair of sneakers. Not as big as this boot though. I only take an 8 1/2 EE.
