big C and I had to take an urgent trip to his hometown in illinois last week. it was my first time in the midwest and we were lucky enough to head out right after the blizzard had passed.
in between seeing family we stole away for a quick shopping trip (for him not me *sigh) in peoria. his brother t had raved about this great shop that carried boots suitable for electrician work.
the average temp was 5 degrees; cold was an understatement. big C did say I did pretty good for a california girl. yay. brrrr!
