In-your-face stuff from an opinionated
rural north Idaho housewife.
Beautiful pictures, But I am glad that it's still shorts weather in Sacramento. Ottar
Oh Honey, I fire up the stove (heater) long before it gets to 59 in the house! I have old bones and thin skin, and if it drops below 68 I get crabby. Summer or winter, day or night, if it drops below 74 I start piling on the layers of clothes and dragging my wool shawl around with me. OK, I'm not THAT old, but it's the millage that counts sometimes, not the years.
Nice! I'm sure I can smell your log fire and pine trees. :))))
Ottar, I'm with ya. The Northern California climate is still very pleasant. There's a chill in the air, but it's still nice outside. This time of year, I get warm by raking up the leaves. LOL Anonymous PatriotUSA
Yeah, Sacramento is a pretty town in a pretty state. It's too bad you are in a downward spiral with no way out that I can see. The return to sanity for California will be a uncomfortable experience at best.
You are rural tough because most of the females I'm around start suffering at about 70 degrees. It's amusing to me as I walk around in short sleeves in 40 degree weather. Yes I prefer warm but I am forced to deal with cold. It's all good!
It's cool here, too. 54 degrees indoors...just built a fire and have a pot of stock simmering on the stove. Something about that aroma just makes things feel warmer.I found a news article last night that said the 'experts predict' that this year Europe could have the coldest winter in a thousand years due to a significant slowing of the jet stream. Anyone else heard this?BRRR indeed!Gotta go....need to split some kindling.A. McSp
I'm jealous...33 when I woke up here in TN this morning, and day after tomorrow the high is supposed to be 87-ish :(
Well now that is just Mean TN! Where is your compassion for those of us who deal with the cold? Do you want to hear a CRAZY prediction for this winter? TN experiences a record cold rainey overcast winter. I have a 50 percent chance of being right. It's all funny no matter how it goes.
A. McSp, yes I read the same thing about the winter prediction for Europe. I know they don't have air conditioning - I hope they have heaters. LOL Seriously, those folks are going to be in a world of hurt even if it's only half as dire as predicted. I hope they aren't counting on us for help - we'll be suffering from the worst financial disaster in the past 1,000 years. A.P.USA
No kidding. I don't think most of us can wrap our minds around the implications of such a prediction.We're hearing forecasts here for 'the worst winter in at least 50 years.' Jeeperz! Year-before-last we had the worst one in decades, and they're saying this one will likely be worse. We're putting up extra firewood and stocking up on everything we possibly can. Time to be ready to hunker down.A. McSp
