No snow on the ground here yet, but we have had some snow already (although it's warmed up a bit today...)

What does "warmed up a bit" mean? Please don't tell me freaking 75!

Nope, no more 75 degree days here! I think we were supposed to hit the mid 50s today for a high, but it's been cold and rainy here for the last 4 or 5 days.

Rain in October is just sick and wrong. Snow sucks, but rain is just NASTY.

We had our first frost last night. The poor chickens were mighty thirsty this morning because their water froze during the night.

poor chickies!!!

Ronjohn, "chilly" evenings means it hits in the high 40s overnight. I consider that chilly, but not cold.

You can't complain. You live further North than even I do in SSM, MI. You live in The Great White North! Just ask Getty Lee.

I love winter. I just wish all the neighborhood kids weren't grown up so I'd have someone to help me make a monster snowman, and a snow fort worthy of proper snowball fights.

And boy do I miss those teen years riding my 1968 Polaris Mustang with the 389 JLO engine (I think it was 389 CC's )

Me too! How come my wife isn't like that? She's a El Cajon, Ca. girl, just about 30 miles East of San Diego. She hates the cold and loves temperatures that melt me.

If the temperature gets much above 75 Fareheight, I start feeling very hot. If it's above 68 in the house, I start sweating. I'm good between 5' to 68'. Below 5' F., I start to feel the cold.

Um...respectfully Goodweed, complaining about the snow and assorted other crappy weather is one of the things we Canadians do best.

I have to take a picture of our back yard. Its covered in snow with green leaves falling all over the snow. Now thats something you don't see everyday.

Alix, I guess you don't want to know that it got up to 76° F. today. But tomorrow it will only be 64 (running away now)
