Bwogger and SoCal resident Nicki Camberg has some questions, namely: what are duck boots? What is she supposed to do when it snows? Is sledding an actual thing? These aren’t rhetorical please help her.
Reviving an old Bwog concept, we’re compiling the best—to the worst—of Columbia this past year. See where your victories and failures rank on our Power Rankings.
