This morning it startled me enough to nearly choke on my oatmeal. Thunder, lightning and pouring rain. It just seemed out of place in January in Wisconsin. I ran out to my car, my pants getting drenched. My upper-body, on the other hand stayed dry and warm thanks to my favorite Christmas Present : a Nike ACG waterproof jacket that has zip-off sleeves and turns into a vest, if needed. It is the type of jacket that I drool over in running stores, but would never buy for myself. Leave that up to those who love me.
Today, I am grateful for this jacket and the fact that it was a the perfect Christmas gift – something I really wanted but had no idea I was going to get. Plus, its green!
