Solstice, Solace, and Wet Felt

Today is the shortest day of the year. I've a myriad of things to do, but can't until my 11:00 flexcar is available. It's raining buckets at the moment and I had to come down to work, walking in the rain. I bought this Spiewalk coat as my winter jacket last month and notice that I become a big blanket of wetness, as was my jeans when I walked into the office... I kept thinking about how last century (and before) that no-one had polycarbonate-rain-resistant polymers and materials. Felt jackets and heavy thick blankets which would soak up the water and illness. I thought of Buey's "Felt Suit" hanging at SAM. Wondered what it would be like wet, walking through muddy parking lots and trying to get a short amount of tasks accomplished in a 5 hour stretch.
