Whining

OK, its a blistering 1C here right now. (Thats 31F for you folks in the US) and I'm CRABBY! Its only 9 days ago that it was a record breaking 35C (98F?)! I had to cover my tomatoes yesterday. I know this is actually normal temperature for this time of year, I'm just not ready for it at all. Phooey!

I have capris and shorts still in my drawer, and I had to break out the fleece too. BAH!

I know this isn't even close to your pain Alix, but this morning it was barely 40F here in VA, & that's rather chilly for this time of year. Normally our night temps don't drop into the 40's/30's until late Oct./early Nov. I have a feeling we'll be experiencing the same early frosts as last year.

Long sleeves! AAAAAA! Early frosts!!! SNOW???!!!! Peeeeeyew! I gotta say, I'm not impressed. Is there someone we can email to complain about the cold coming early this year? Mother Nature maybe?

Thanks for letting me whine and sharing my pain folks. I feel a little better now. Still gonna whine though. LOL!

Actually, we usually have a dusting of snow mid-September. We hope to have a good, snowy year here. Our Nordic ski trails are fabulous, and just minutes away. We hike in the summer, ski in the winter. So the in-between time is rough. Bring it on!!!!!!!!

GB, I laughed out loud at that email addy. Thanks.

The weather is just nuts here lately. It went down to -7C (16F) last night after warming up to nearly 18C (66) during the day. Weird!

I have been filling my bird feeders the last few weeks as I know the cold stuff is coming and they will need to know where they can come to find food. However...I filled the feeder on Friday last week and on Saturday we had an epic windstorm. LOL. My feeders were sideways most of the afternoon and evening. Now do you think those birds are eating the seed that is all over the ground? NoooOOOOooooo! They are already so spoiled they go to the feeder...sit on the perch and try vainly to dig some out of the feeder. Then they turn and look in the window accusingly at me. I'm still shaking my head at them. I'll fill the feeder later today, which of course will prompt either another windstorm or perhaps rain/snow.

Our weather has been so ridiculous this year. One of the ice-y-ist (OK, there must be a right way to spell that), coldest winters on record, then one of the coolest summers on record. I swear, I've not seen a summer like this since I was a teenager living in Germany; and while I saw colder winters when I lived in North Dakota, I didn't live on the side of a hill. I'm hoping it will be better this year. Global warming? Hmm. I actually had someone tell me the record lows of this year were caused by global warming. OK. Come on over and put chains on my truck so I can drive in this global warming.
