Br-r-r!

Imagine being a creature that lives outside of a warm house all the time. It’s not my cuppa, for sure.

To some people, this kind of stuff is very attractive.

To me, it’s nice in a photograph, but it stinks in real life. When it gets frosty and icy, I steel myself to grab a camera and dash outside and take several snapshots as fast as possible. Then I dash back indoors and fiddle with the exposure and composition and try to reduce the shaking-hands blurriness.

The weather report on the radio this morning called our current weather “February-like,” and I totally agree. Below freezing and it’s only late November! This year we went from summer to spring, then winter. What happened to autumn? Must be global warming, or, as I like to call it, warble gloaming.

Infing. Your commentary however........ ahhhh it is way more titillating, interesting, funny. Yep, darn fun actually! N

Karla and I bundled up and took a hike to Dragon Hill. When we got back, our cheeks were rosy. (Oh, I just heard the hair dryer turn off—Karla's cheeks must be thawed now. It's my turn next; gotta go!)

It's actually colder at Ahwahnee than here (North Devon; 52' NORTH in latitude)....makes me feel sort of smug.....mind you ;it was -15 C in Feb. last year; actually cold enough for light to freeze....

It's a balmy 21C here today and we're aiming for 27C. It's cloudy and a little showery so I can't hang my washing on the line, but all dog water dishes are open for business and hair dryers are not needed for frozen cheeks or wet hair either :)

Daffy, you get the advantage of the residual warmth of the Atlantic Gulf Stream. Without that transferred Caribbean heat, you’d be in the World Capital of Cold.

Susan, since you’re on the opposite side of the equator, it’s to be expected that you’re not freezing. When it starts getting cold in Queensland, send me some pictures of snow on the surrounding peaks! At least that might silence those noisy parrots that used to wake me at four in the morning.

THIS is what comes of being smug; temps plummeted last night to -4 C/22F....no snow; yet....

Ha ha! If there was ever snow on the peaks here, I will definitely send you a photo :) Meanwhile, the parrots do live on.....
