It's supposed to get close to 70 today. Most people would like that, but to me it's a little warm for November. I really enjoy the season changes. If November stays about 30-45 with no snow, I'll be very happy.

It's about 70 here also, but I'm coping. All I can come up with to indicate season change is the early sunsets and this scene yesterday, not much leaf changing here so I enjoy whatever is there, best guess is they are shooting a Macy's ad:

High of 42 here. Low of 31. I'll trade you. Season changes are highly overrated. Give me 75 and sunny with a low of 65 365 days a year and i'll be happy. Whats that leave me with? Coastal San Diego the closest thing? Maybe Pacific Beach?

Now that sounds wonderful to me come February. It's funny but most late summers, during the hot and HUMID days here in Nebraska, I get sort of a reverse SAD. I hibernate with the AC during that time and then fall hits and I'm ready to get out and about.

Frost on windshield every morning now, but the midday temps get up to mid 40s. Very cloudy this time of year. Sigh...
But...newsflash...the sun shined (shone?) today until 1 PM! Wooohooooooooo And...it is NOT snowing.

You gotta look for the silver linings at this latitude.

Who would have thought? A hurricane in mid-November, albeit a mild one. Although there are coastal hurricane watches in our area, they do not extend to New Orleans.

Still, our local TV meteorologists are saying that we will have severe storms tonight, extending through tomorrow and the storm should make landfall sometime tomorrow night near Mobile. Also, locally tides will be five to six feet above normal. Thank goodness, I am not in an area affected by tides.

Here in New Orleans, we can expect stormy weather and localized flooding in the usual spots over the next day or two. One of the usual spots is the only reasonable route from my work to my home (due to a freeway and railroad tracks between the two). Usually it is the first road closed around here. Hopefully I will be retired and back home before there is any flooding, and then I can just thumb my nose at my co-workers who will have to go many miles out of their way to get home tomorrow.

Totally amazing! We have been told that there is a slight (though very low) chance of snow here by the end of the week. (Yeah, right! I seriously doubt it).

Yesterday it was dark, windy, and rainy all day here, high barely 50.

Yep... Statistics will probably prove me wrong, but I don't ever remember snow this early in December, especially with a forecast of two inches. I've lived in the D/FW area for 15 years.

Snow in Texas is like sex: you never know how many inches you'll get, or how long it will last...

Thanks for the compliments on my yard. Here is a pic from last year. We're going to make some changes in the spring. Oy...my back hurts just thinking about it.

Our current forecast for Friday is a high of 35F, a low of 22F and a 70% chance of snow, with accumulation of 2" possible...

Yep...ours is about the same. There will be a mad dash for the grocery store in the next couple of days. People around here freak out at the thought of snow. I lived in St. Louis for 8 years...and still have the memory of what snow is really like..

So what does that mean for a Noo Yawker living SE of Lake Ontario?

When it blows just the right way, expect lots of it and it is guaranteed to last for months.
Ain't gonna be calling no doctor after 4 hours at this latitude.

PS Only got 2 inches yesterday.
