    We are under a winter storm advisory! That means I get to stay home and sew! Actually I want to go over to a craft show at the local school as my quliting buddies have some stuff there for sale--I don't want to buy quilting stuff but just want to chit chat with them--LOL. I love winter!

    Better you than me. At least it has cooled down here. It was in the 30's last night and low 60's today. Perfect!

    It has been almost 100 for the past few days here in San Diego! A little cooler today, but who ever heard of 100 degrees in November?????

    Winter storms are not too far away now here in New Hampshire. Today it is cool, cloudy, windy, with the sun coming out once in a while. And when it does, it lights up the leaves remaining on the trees.

    We are getting flurries right now, and I am not happy! We are on our way out to the Oddmall craft show and my joints are killing me, blergh! We very rarely get snow before Thanksgiving, but the paper said it was supposed to be a snowy winter.

    We went to the fall festival this morning - it's only 53 right now and 'sposed to get down to 29 tonite...
    We saw everything from flip-flops to fuzzy boots, from t-shirts to sweatshirts/heavy coats and "Michigan" hats (with flaps down even)... cool weather in south Alabama is hysterical time for people watching... LOL

    Makes us really wonder what would happen around here if it REALLY got cold - or if they REALLY got more than a 'dusting' of snow.... (if they get 3 inches they call it a blizzard!) And do NOT get on the road here if it is snowing or freezing drizzle because these folks do NOT slow down for the conditions - just keep zooming along until they wipe out and land in a ditch!!....

    People watching here is hilarious in the high school parking lot in the winter. Flip flops belly baring tee shirts and pajama bottoms with no coat in January!!!

    Hope you get over to see your friends. My niece (lives in Anchorage) just sent an email saying she got stuck in the driveway and her dad had to pull her car out! That part I don't miss, but there is a lot of Alaska I do miss! It is nice to stay inside and watch the snow, hope you get a lot of sewing done. :lol: :lol:

    Have fun! I love snow, had lots of it growing up in NW Kentucky. Around here we rarely get any, but when we do everything shuts down then we get our snow days! :)

    Send us a pic so we can see how pretty it is!! :wink: I'm NOT a winter-weather person, but I do love it when it is snowing outside and I can be inside watching it. It's so beautiful. Then I have to get in my car and drive to school!!! YUCK!!! I would much rather be inside with a nice hot cup of cocoa and either curled up in a chair with a book or magazine (quilting or any other) or sewing and just watching it all go by. :-D

    I know its coming, but I hope it holds off just a little while longer. I hate having to drive in it. Love to sit and watch it fall, but getting out is not fun at all. Enjoy the beauty and quilt your little heart out

    What we like (really really) about this area is REAL four seasons - 3 months winter, 3 months spring, 3 months summer, 3 months fall....
    At least it isn't 8 months of gloom and cold and snow and ick like it is in NE Indiana (where we lived for 37 years so don't try to tell me different!) - I survived the blizzard of '78)....
    Fortunately it seldom snows here - we did get some last winter (in March) - enough to make a small (very small) snowman LOL ....

    We are still having wonderful weather here in the
    San Fransisco Bay Area. It has been in the 70's and 80's this week. If this keeps up people will be able to have their Thanksgiving dinner outside.

    Another niece (living in Soldotna, Alaska) sent me this photo taken today! She's not "too" far from Franie. Stay safe.

    I love snow, I have a 4 wheel drive pick up and driving on the snow is no big deal, had 2 in last 10 years, wouldn't be without one now. I retired in June, will only have to drive in snow if it falls on my shopping day, Hubby will need it to go to work, little automatic canyon won't do so good without weight in the bed.
    It is warming up tomorrow and 1st of the week. More like spring.

    I really don't like snow or the cold. I have to go to work no matter what. At least I have wheel drive.

    I love a good snowfall. But I do not have to get out in it if I do nto want to either. Big difference. But I always do get out and at least drive around the neighborhood so I can see the beauty. Me driving on the highway or Interstate just does not happen! LOL I would be a hazard to everyone. LOL

    Franie you take care & be careful with that foot & ankle!!! Don't want you re-injuring it!!! ;)

    You can keep your snow.

    I hate it.

    We are in the tail end of Indian Summer. It has been beautiful - little nippy, but sun out and you can still feel the warmth on your face. But tomorrow, it is supposed to start getting cold. And that means snow is on the way. We usually get a few flurries here and there (we already had one, but it didn't stay on the ground, just hit the windshield on the car and sort of slapped you in the face) and then we get hit good! We survived the winter of 1991-1992 when we had the worst blizzard on Hallowe'en. Yard was full of candy bars come Spring and the snow melted. That was funny. But that was 20 years ago. It has been relatively easy as far as winter goes here. Every month during winter we have a PIP report in the newspaper. PIP means PAIN IN the POSTERIOR report - It tells the low temperature, the high temperature, the snow fall, the ice, everything relative to winter (snow emergencies, etc.) and it can get pretty wicked even since 1992, but I don't ever remember it worse than that! We had snow up to the top of our clothesline pole. It was like we were walking through corridors to get to the front or to the garage. It was fun though. I love snow until the 25th of December. Then I hate it! I hate being cold, I am scared to drive in the snow, I hate the ice. My husband fell last winter, broke his arm, had to have surgery to pin it back together and put a steel plate in his arm. And he is 74. So this year it is going to bother me even more, because I am going to be more protective of him(He doesn't like that). Anyhow, we get through winter and listen to the sounds of the robins that have come back and see the crocuses coming up and that first dandelion. What a sight. A lady went to England and saw that sweet little flower and brought it back to the United States and that is how these lawn care companies make their millions, from a little old lady who loved the flower known as the Dandelion! I wonder who brought in Crabgrass!!! Enjoy the day, hot or cold. Be grateful that we are here to enjoy it! We have a roof over our heads, a sewing machine at hand and fabric up the you know what. What else do we need - cup of tea, coffee, a coke, hey, how bout a glass of wine? Any of you ever try Choco-Vin. It is a red wine mixed with chocolate - to die for!!!!!!! Tastes a little like Bailey's. I got a bottle from my sister for my birthday and am waiting for the BIG BLIZZARD to drink it! Have a great day! Edie
