If the sun would come out it would be perfect.
Because I live so close to the ocean, we may not get a frost until the end of December. (I live a block from the Atlantic.) And some years none at all. The ocean water is always warmer than the air and when the wind is coming in off the ocean, it is always warmer here than the rest of inner Boston. So we take our Indian Summer when we get it.

The strange thing is our Boston information comes from the Weather Bureau located out at Logan Airport. If you look at the map, the airport is surrounded by the ocean. So technically, their reports don't apply to Eastie. Even the airport doesn't go by their reports. That is why you see weather socks all over the airport and even on the outskirts of the airport. There is a whole row of them on Saratoga Street on the way to Winthrop. If fact, most of their reports don't even apply to Boston at all. They are never spot on for Boston. Only for the rest of the Commonwealth. If you see pictures of Boston Harbor frozen over, then you know it is a cold winter.

Woke up to 42 F, it's currently 50 and clouding up. Windows are open, so it's about the same temp in the house.

Cold, overcast & misting off & on all day here in SE S.D. It's in the mid 40's. Time to get the fall jackets out.

It's 85F outside right now. When the inside temp reaches 80, on goes the A/C. I keep seeing the "What are you baking today?" thread and thinking, "Are you kidding?!? Nothing!!!"

But isn't that what A/C is for?

55 last night, 61 today, and bone-chilling dampness for two days. Caved in and turned the heat on...and it isn't even November 1st! (Family joke - Himself's cousin, who lived in Burke, VA before moving to Williamsburg a few years ago, absolutely refuses to turn the heat on before Nov. 1st.) Heat will be off again soon since I just wanted to take the chill out of the house. Besides, it's supposed to be 75 and very humid tomorrow. Sure hope we don't need the air!

Ugh....hope you feel better soon, Princess.

It's finally starting to cool down here and I'm wearing my beloved sweatshirts, at least in the morning. 60 degrees right now. The multiple weeks of 110-115 during the summer kicked my butt. lol
