We've got a dusting on the ground already!

December? Maybe, maybe not. Supposedly it's going to be a mild winter, whatever that means. They've said that for the last few years, and we've not had much snow. This dusting won't last as in a few days the forecast says upper 40s to low 50s.

Anything can happen weatherwise here. Some ten or so years ago the Halloween blizzard dumped some 2 feet of snow. Then, when Mrs Big Dog and I were married in December 1998, the day of our wedding was overcast and around 50 degrees and no trace of snow.

Long story short, all bets are off. There's no guarentee it will be cold, let alone snow.

Consider me completely jealous of you who actually have the real 4 seasons. We have summer, hotter-than-summer, warmer-than-spring and smog.


Today's forecast is upper 70's to mid 80s. ugh! I can't stand heat.

I want snow! Anyone want to send me their cold fronts?

Well actually, my front is pretty warm from all the coughing, but my behind is a bit chilly. Would a cold behind do it for you jkath?

Cooler here today, too. Instead of opening the doors this morning and leaving them open after I fed the outside kitties, I had to close them. That kind of makes me sad and upsets the inside kitties. They can't converse with their outdoor counterparts. Our little indoor Tigger spent the better part of breakfast time wandering around the kitchen and crying. Kept going back and forth to the breakfast room door. Poor baby, he misses his friends.

However, by this time in October I'm ready for colder weather. I LOVE cold weather. Was the happiest when I lived in Minnesota up near the Canadian border. We never get much snow here and I think that should be a requirement at Christmastime.

Bring on the cold weather. Time for yummy cold weather comfort food!
