It does feel like winter today: it is 45 degrees at 3 pm and there is frost in the forecast for tonight. We have had some rain too the last couple of days, 0.7 inches so far, and that contributes to that cold, wintry, feeling. But it does make it feel that the holidays are near and I much enjoy that. If you were brought up in a cool climate that saw some snow and dark days at the end of December, it is difficult to sing Oh Christmas Tree when you are walking around in short sleeves.
I am not the only one cold this afternoon. Here is Roadie trying to warm up in an errant ray of sun. I think it is time for a fire in the fireplace.
