No doubt between Edinboro and Franklin, lol.
That's always a nasty stretch.

Gotta love the steam that comes off the water when the cold air moves in. -13C (9F) right now and more squalls coming this afternoon.

I know, my feet usually don't start getting cold until it's 0F outside.

Yeesh. My feet are cold now and it's 30F outside, *and* I have on heavy socks and my feet are wrapped in an afghan. The cat on my lap helps, though.

It is 13F. with a wind chill of 4F. My heater has not shut off all night and I have the blower on high. In the 6.5 years I have lived here, I can not recall it ever doing that. I am wearing my heavy duty bathrobe and still can't get warm. And I have an appointment with the foot doctor this morning. Oh so much joy!

This is not our normal November weather. It is our late January, February weather.

23F here right now. The sun is out though. It's supposed to get into the thirties, but I find it often feels colder when warmer temps start melting snow.
No more snow predicted until the middle of the week... of course. Just in time for the holiday.

We received over 12 inches of snow with this last storm. I just walked down to the house site, wasn't going to start my car in 9*F if I didn't have to. There was a whole flock of pick-up trucks there, mostly associated with the new construction next door.

Well, it is colder than usual for November, but is it that unusual? Back in the late '70s/early '80s, I always made sure to get my winter tires put on the car before the end of October. We have had -13 C (9 F), but no snow to speak of.
