After the Great Flood of November 2010 we replaced the flooring in our home. Away went the carpet in the bathroom - Carpet in the bathroom? Who does that? - and in came the tile. Tile that is ever so cold to walk on. Arctic, really. Like your feet going on a vacation to Greenland. In the summer I don't mind so much. But in winter, egads! That's farctic! It occurred to me that the simple act of rug buying could solve this issue. So, that's what I did.
