It sounds all warm and nice, but from a girl who was raised in NY and Chicago I kinda miss a little cool weather this time of year... I say kinda because when I start hearing the below 0 temps and seeing all the snow that has to be shoveled well that's when all that nostalgia goes out the window LOL...

Me, too. And, yes, I have snacks and drinks. Makes a big difference. There 's a whole box of stuff back there...a shovel, huge length of rope, blankets....all of which have come in handy.

i, too, am prepared for the harshness of winter...i have the stadium seats for my son's football games (those aluminum bleacher seats at 60 degrees are miserable). one pair of cleats and one pair of turf shoes - never know when a soccer game may break out. a case of water - because i drink water always, including a bottle both on the way to and from work. an umbrella - cause who likes to get wet unless swimming or bathing.

being a man, i'm not concerned with having to contend with driving into a ditch, getting stuck in a traffic jam, driving off the road, etc. These are things that men are inherantly able to avoid, just because of our manliness.

The arctic front has arrived in my office. It's a balmy 34 outside and my office feels like -34!!! I'm about to take my shred waste box and make a hobo fire!

Last night NYC was under a weather alert for the pending snow storm a November rarity. It was such a rarity that when I went to work today I could not find any evidence of any snow.

Keep up the fear mongering weather people.

Now THAT just brightened my morning, E.G.B. One could really read that a couple of different ways.

You're probably OK. Trash bags and a saw are not on the list.

Well I'm not that prepared. I figure I always have water with me, and I know I won't starve for several days, so bring it on!

I drove right into someone's field in a whiteout once and was very happy for the rope. Just glad I decided to stop driving before I got any farther away from the state hwy.

Set up shop with blankies, tea, granola bars, a good book and flashlight. So comfy that I almost missed my rescue.

Inch of snow fell yesterday. In typical OK fashion, the snow "fell" sideways and drifted. And all schools cancelled classes today. Yay winter!

We had snow last night (just a dusting though). Snow before Thanksgiving is way wrong. Only two seasons it seems in Oklahoma anymore....summer and winter.

That's so true RH. Last Monday our high was 80 and yesterday I don't think it got above 25. We're switching directly from A/C to heat. Guess there's no electric bill relief in sight :-/

A balmy 24F in West Central Texas this morning. The wife's "chicki-babies" were up scratching for all they are worth. They sulked in their coop late last week when the cold first hit but it appears they became acclimated.

3 degrees, -13 WC this morning. Meh. Not much to be done about it but dill. Dog walking at night is a little chilly, but I've got the gear for it.

Last night a guy stopped me and asked if I was sure I should be out walking my dog when it was so cold. As I stopped to explain that it was fine, he was digging in the snow and laid down in it. He got an extra treat for that metaphorical middle finger when we got home laugh
