I have had to wear my boots in my yard most everyday for almost a month. When the heavy rains started some weeks ago, I came home one day to discover that my driveway was flooded. I left my vehicle at the end of the driveway and waded to the house. The running shoes I wore through the water didn’t survive being submerged. I sent them through the washer and dryer but I couldn’t get out the moldy smell; into the trash they went.
Now my rubber boots come with me most days when I leave the house, due to the forecast of a repeat weather pattern.
