I just came inside and took my shoes off at the door. Now I'm barefoot. Earlier while out and about, I was wearing my Crocs, so I choose 'clogs' as I figure that's pretty much what [basic/original] Crocs are, style-wise anyhow.

I wear flip flops nine months out of 12, but I have on my sneakers right now because I just got back inside from walking in the snow... home from the grandkids' house already! I wear black flip flops to funerals, no kidding. I'm a flip flop girl, except sometimes I wear sneakers in the garden.

Cajun ~ part of being cold is our circulation, especially when we sit still. A couple of suggestions as I don't like the cold either...

Layers are good but too many have a reverse effect. Start with an old pair of pantyhose, then a pair of socks and a slipper or shoe or flipflops to put something insulated between you and the floor.

I have an old pair of wool clogs that I love. The wool is warm, even on bare feet. The soles of the clogs insulate from the cold floor and the clogs are large enough that they can stand the bulk of a pair of stockings.

Speaking from experience as I sit here with four layers of shirts ~ LOL Stay warm!

I think I should have said barefoot but there is a small rat terrier keeping my feet warm.

Old black suede-gone--shiny Merrell pull ons - no insoles left - with a stout pair of socks. Very cosy. And comfy. Old friends on the feet. . .

Sneakers. When I don't have sneakers on it is socks and slippers together. Year 'round. I cannot stand dirty feet, so cannot go barefoot outside or inside, we have small dogs who have accidents inside. Yecch! Only wear sandals on pavement, not dirt, so not at home.

I think I would go crazy if I was not barefoot at least part of every day.

We've had Christmas and the blizzard so I hauled out the "Aunt Mary socks" which are hand knitted wool socks my sister knits for me and other members of our family who live in cold climates. She is a master knitter but lives in North Carolina where people don't usually wear such heavy duty footwear. Fortunately for her knitting habit, we do. Oh, and Santa brought me a pair of L.L. Bean fleece lined leather slippers for Christmas. So I can take the garbage out in my slippers if I have to.
Happy New Year!

AL is for Alabama, no? Pats of Alabama and New York are in the same Zone?

It is 38 in Alabama (Zone 8) right now. Its a relatively warm day. According to the weather forcast we will have a high of 58 and a low of 35 today. There will be rain and then another cold spell of lows in the upper 20s.

I don't think any parts of Alabama are in the same zone as New York.

Here is the Zone Map. There is some 7a (Pink) in Northern Alabama.

Yes, we are in zone 7. It's much nicer all year long, way out here on Long Island, just 14 miles from the Atlantic Ocean, than upstate NY, where it's colder and where they get much more snow.

Hi Pirl. Wow! You are out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!

I used to live in Flushing--not quite the same!

My maid-of-honor lived off Main Street on 144th Road in Flushing! I stll remember her phone exchange was BOulevard. As teens we thought having BO was hysterically funny - as a phone exchange only!

We're probably only 100 miles east of Flushing, zone 6..
