After 7 years living in the Northwest – maybe it’s 8, I dunno – I’ve finally given in and gotten my feets some gumboots! And I’m talking Northwest BC here, not that lotus-land “Northwest” of Cascadia.
But I like that name, ‘Cascadia’. We should take that – I mean, cascades, we’ve got ’em up here. Wikipedia also alleges that ‘Borealia’ and ‘Ursalia’ were in the running for the job. And ‘Transatlantia’ (!) Now that’s just silly… though I admit it would make for a kind of spacey national anthem…
Anyways, gumboots, yes. ‘Tis the season for gumboots after all.
Downpourians? Muskegooians? Gumbootians? Mildewds?
