How funny! One man's ceiling is really another man's floor, isn't it? Other than the pine trees, which I like too, and the 'SoCal', you could switch that whole post around to suit me very easily...watch!

I hate winter. I hate
to be freezing cold. I detest anything under 65 degrees. I like the beach. I like pine trees. What the heck am I doing in Chicagoland?

I hope your kids have picked out some warm halloween costumes! I remember my sister was a Genie (like I Dream of Jeanie) one year and it snowed, she went trick or treating in a huge jacket. Nobody could see her costume.

We learned long ago to build costumes that go over snowsuits. LOL!! Madeleine is a bag of jelly beans this year so she's OK. Not sure what Kate is going as though. Hope she picks something warm!

I bet I know a few of those. Ken knows a few that he mutters whilst shovelling.

The stuff we are getting right now is perfect snowball/snowman snow though. I suspect that pristine expanse will soon be crisscrossed with footprints and there will be big bare patches.

Better you than me, dear Alix. I prefer the weather in my avatar.

Thanks for the picture, Alix. I sure miss snow. We haven't gotten much here the last several years and, when I see pictures such as yours, I get homesick for Minnesota. Loved it there. All sorts of fun things to do in and with the snow.

It wasn't unusual for the children to go trick-or-treating in the snow. I guess if someone dressed up as a ghost up there, their costume could be considered camouflage.

I think snow should be mandatory for Christmas.

Alix,
the snow is beautiful......from here in front of my computer, hot tea in hand, two pair of socks, a sweater and slippers Anything under 70 and I freeze! The odd thing is winter and snow, rain, fog, I enjoy as long as I'm NOT out in it. Well back to my warm kitchen and my sauce for enchilladas.
