Winter is Coming…

Well, folks, this is it. November 16, 2005 is the first day I get to break out my winter coat because it’s going to be a whopping 36 degrees in Chicago. 36! That means the real cold stuff – highs in the teens and lows below zero – isn’t all that far behind.

I’m not a fan of the ultra-cold weather. But when it’s just warm enough, there’s a blanket of snow on the ground, and there are some flurries in the air… winter can be fantastic.

I always liked snow; On TV and in someone else's yard.
I lived in Upstate NY for 3 yrs. I saw enough, thank you very much.

I forgot to add -40C and -40F are the same: Snot-freezing-cold! Only one time did I see (feel) it reach those temperatures. But I had to go out just to feel the power.

Definitely coat weather. It's flurry-ing steadily here. Woo hoo! I love winter. Especially after a really big snowstorm and the days after are all crisp and sunny and REALLY cold (and windy).

I hate the wind, but my favorite temps are around 17 or 18F. I am serious. I don't like the 40s because you can usually still feel dampness here in the northeast at that temp. I like 18 in intense sunshine. I also like to run in the snow at I am sure I have told you before.

I hate the heat, yes I do. It makes me ill, but gives me a great excuse to wear sleeveless shirts. If my shoulders cannot be exposed, I want to layer myself beneath warm fleecey clothing.

I miss snow.

I do not miss shoveling a foot of snow off of an icy, steeply sloped driveway. But I miss the other aspects of snow.

Out here in the SF region it is an unseasonably warm 80F. Feh.

What is this then?
