Ok, really here! Get fitted for raincoats, wetsuits and booties and get a waterproof bag. Go inside to find more instant coffee (seriously missing a good cup of Timmies, or any drip coffee for that matter) Thats okay, coffee probably isn't a good idea today anyway, peppermint tea, a piece of dry bread and a banana.
