Happy 2015

Well, I have to admit, I never realized I would be away from blogging for so long. But lookie there! It’s the end of January 2015 already, and all the spectacular holidays have been survived, and the bleakness that’s called winter is here. More

Winter

It looks like this year is supposed to be a rather snowy one for us – at least on the East Coast Mid-Atlantic region. Already we’ve been dumped on quite unexpectedly. AccuWeather wasn’t all that AccuRate in their prediction: a coating up to an inch, which wasn’t supposed to start until about 1:00 in the afternoon. That morning, Hubby and I ran out to a quick breakfast, then some grocery shopping – he with a light jacket, and I with my Crocks. Till we came out of the BJ’s, I was schlepping through three inches of that “dusting” which didn’t stop until we had between 8 and 10 inches total.

Autumn

It’s that time of the year again. The weather is turning colder in this region, which means things are beginning to change. For those who don’t know, the Philadelphia region of the United States has four distinct seasons throughout the year; though in all honesty, some years they’re less distinctive. And with the onslaught of cooler weather, we’re forced to wear layers of clothes to stay warm, to put away the flip-flops (some stalwarts I know try to hang on to them until it snows; and even then reluctantly put them away) and the shorts, to break out the sweaters, the jackets, and eventually the fur-lined parkas.

By the time you read this (yea, I’m one of those that writes his blog posts in advance and has them post later), the “event” we are waiting for will have already have happened around here. That “event,” of course, is the snow storm headed this way. It’s supposed to start very late Tuesday night and go through until Thursday morning. Now, I know there are people out there who have never seen snow. If you’re one of those people, you can trust me on this: You’re not missing anything!
