2. There was something coming out of the sky yesterday
that was too dense to be rain. :cry:

I fear that it's about that time for us in NW Missouri as well. What happened to fall? Literally a week and a half ago, it was in the mid-80s. :(

3. Snow?
Ouch that really is bad.

But then thanks to the Gulf Stream we normally wait until January until it hits us - if at all.

5. I wish I were there, Mark 414! I'm perspiring in the minimal

air conditioning at the library here in Ft. Myers, Florida -- it's 89 degrees and HUMID! The sun is broiling. I'm a prisoner in the pool each morning and in air conditioning until nightfall -- when I go back in the pool!

This is one of the reasons I like to say, "Florida is a great place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live here." Not after the 28 years I DID live here...I'm a cold weather gal who was "kidnapped" to from Pennsylvania and taken to Florida at age 3 by my parents!

Stay calm, sweetie -- it should warm up after this first blast of cold, right?

Indian Summer for the Midwest, anyone?

In peace,

6. I love snow, cold, ice cycles,
I miss it so bad here in bland, seasonless middle of nowhere flatland next to a city that thinks it's hot shit but is just some big nightmare superwalmart of a metropolitan area.

I want back in my mountains where you can see panther tracks in the snow.

Send me some snow, I'll take it.
