    Whew, at noon I had AC on, Left at 2 to go to drs. apt. at 3 pm the wind blew in and the temp drop 30 degrees. It was 54 when I left the doctors office. Grandson had football game and wind was so bad we were all wrapped in blankets. Teeth were chattering. Weather report says low of 44 here tonight in Central Mississippi!!! We went from summer to winter...no fall...high tomorrow MAY reach low 60s! Brrrrrrrrr!!

    We are to get our first hard freeze tonight and another tomorrow night. We've had our heat on for three weeks now. It has to happen sooner or later but I always prefer later if we can get it.

    The weather hype here (West Ga) has been about the cold weather coming in.....yesterday was 80 deg., low this a.m. was 61, which I don't think is cold....THEY keep saying it is coming this way....one weather forecaster has been talking about snow in the north GA mtns !

    I certainly enjoy cooler weather, almost cold, I think I feel better and certainly enjoy staying inside and quilting !

    It's really cool here in the plains, but I am not complaining one bit after the blistering summer we just had. I love the fall/winter seasons the best!

    The sudden weather change makes it very hard on people.

    So, I'm replying to my own post ! Got showered and dressed this a.m. in t shirt, shorts and sandals....walked out the door a little before 8 a.m., and oh my gosh, it was raining a steady cold rain, wind blowing and the temp had probably dropped to about 50 ! Didn't take me long to come back inside and change into more weather appropriate clothes !

    The plus side is that my apt is so tight and secure I almost never have to turn on heat ! Moved in here in Feb, 2011, and I think I MIGHT of run the "big" furnace once to knock the chill off.....I typically use my little electric heater that looks like a radiator....saved big time on my natural gas consumption this past spring.

    Still cold here today. Weatherman said high is 60s but doesn't feel like it.

    At least no AC today but now I've got to get my gas fireplace lite to take the chill off!!

    And the wind is blowing like a hurricane today!!

    We're getting lots of rain now. And the wind still hasn't laid down. Their are leaves blowing everywhere. And the trees are really getting bare now. I figure it won't be long until we see snow.

    When I walked out of school this afternoon, it was raining and cold. The thermometer in the car said 46 as I was driving home. We flipped the switch on the furnace this evening...the house was just too chilly. Really hate to turn the furnace on. While I like a pretty snow at Christmas...I really do NOT like winter at all.

    It's going to freeze here in Tulsa tonite too. Much as I hated to, I had to kick on the heat this morning. I know alot of us moaned and groaned about the heat this summer, but I'll take the heat any day over the cold. It's 44 right now at 11:45 PM CDT. Forecasting a low of 31 in the morning. Uck...

    I can always put more clothes on; I can only strip so far & still be decent.

    :lol: :lol: I'm the opposite, I can't stand to be bundled up with a bunch of clothes. I like being able to walk out to the barn in my pj's without having to bundle up!
