Quite windy and it's been spitting snow since about 9 a.m. Temp is about 35F. Not enough snow to worry about, but the sky is grey and the whole outside environment is really, really gloomy. Not conducive to being very productive. A very lazy day in this house.

Seems more gloomy when it's "grey" rather than "gray". It's "grey" here.

Well, we went to Roma bundled up in our milan coats, and were stripping of layers, until I was just in my dress with my coat and cardies over my arms and was still warm. The oranges and lemons dripping with fruit put my struggling little potted lemon to shame. Back in Milan its supposed to be a bout 7 degrees celcius, but we are still quite warm, and our flat, usually a fridge, is not so cold.

It's beautiful here today, about 70, bright sun, just great for doing clean up on the patio. We had weeks of frost and did it ever take out many of my plants and ferns..So I've been running back and forth between kitchen and patio..But it feels wonderful...

We have about 4" of new snow. It's been terribly cold (6 degrees yesterday morning), but the wind is blowing in some warmer air. It may get up to 50 next Tuesday.

As you all know, I live in the country. I got up in the wee hours this morning and looked out the window to see a big buck eating ivy in the woods behind the house. I was amused to see that he had snow piled up on his back just like it would on your car.
We feed the birds in the winter, and they were really hungry today. There was such a traffic jam at the bird feeder, that I threw out stale cornbread and biscuits to suppliment. Even the towhees came up from the river bottoms.
We get by with a little help from our friends

Crappy. We now have a total snow accumulation of 18 inches. Yes that is no typo. These are the times when enjoy having a full size 4x4. Last week we had a low of -11 (and that wasn't wind chill). It is supposed to warm up monday to 40 (it will seem like a heat wave).

It 12:10pm and right now we have 10degrees. No wind tonight but still very chilly. We had quite a bit of snow earlier this week and about 1-2 more inches today, but still nothing compared to other parts of the country.

Yesterday morning it was 18 in the back yard and 19 in the front. DD, GS and I went to my mother's for a visit. We made a couple of stops on the way and it was cold and windy. Even the birdbath in the front was frozen solid.
