I saw this yesterday on Twitter. It pretty much sums things up here right now.
On Monday afternoon, it was 81 degrees at our house.
By early Wednesday morning, it was a whopping 19 degrees with a chill factor of *7* degrees.
To say it is cold is just the most epic understatement for us right now, especially since it is not quite mid-November! Last year on November 21, I documented our first big cold front as a drop of about 50 degrees, which was impressive, for sure. One of our local weather forecasters said that this is cold front is one of the most powerful early cold fronts to hit our area in many years/decades, and I totally agree, having lived here all of my life. We even had an unexpected dusting of snow early on Thursday morning to keep things interesting, and the temperature has now been below freezing for almost three straight days.
I. Am. Frozen!!! I don’t know if it is the fact that I’ve lost about 40 pounds since this time last year or what, but goodness gracious, I am not dealing with this cold as well as I did in previous years.
My flip-flops are gone. Put away. Out of sight. Bye bye.
I’m wearing my Uggs all day every day for as long as humanly possible.
We are apparently destined to have yet another big cold front blow in sometime on Saturday, and we may even get an inch of snow this time. I’m beginning to wonder about our next camping trip that is planned for Thanksgiving weekend, which is only two weeks away. Will the weather warm up a bit by then or will the deep freeze continue even longer? I’m not thrilled at the prospect of going out in the RV in 7 degree chill factor weather. At. All. In fact, I think I can safely say that if the weather doesn’t improve by then, we will be sitting at home this Thanksgiving weekend instead of making our usual trek in the RV for a quick getaway.
Tis’ the season! Welcome back, Winter. Please be kind to us this year, ok?
