to the North Face Store,

I hope you can you can fully appreciate how bad the weather is by looking at this picture, but in case you can't, let me just say that it was 13 degrees. It is snowing sideways because there are 50 mph winds. There is so much snow in the air that you can barely see the building that is 25 feet behind us. It's bad. Real bad.
I woke up at 11:00 and needed a duffle bag. Paul did too, and Adam wanted gloves, so we decided to come see you. “The North Face Store is right down the street, the snow isn’t that bad, and we are hardcore,” we said. But today was, unquestionably, the most intense blizzard I’ve ever been unfortunate enough to walk through. It took 45 minutes to walk a quarter mile because the wind, snow, and drifts clearly hate me (if not all of humanity). A baby boutique and the liquor store were the only shops open in Georgetown. And aside from the obligatory gin and winter bassinet, the people need coats, so we thought you might also be open - and you were. Opening your door was like opening the door to the magical world of Narnia.

Thanks for making the battle worth it. I love this bag. I'm going to start packing for New York...


  1. I believe you when you say the snow is bad because you are from idaho and I know how that feels.

  2. You were one Bad Asset to that trip, Brittney. Just sayin'. :)

  3. how brave of you to venture out. i know i would have passed. but i am a wimp. and i really hate the cold. and i hate wind even more than cold.... but i can't imagine all the goodies i could find in a north face store. that would be magical.


I try to respond to comments if I have your email :)
