    Default Snow Please!

    I know that if I had snow like some of you lovely ladies are having I probably wouldn't like it but... Yesterday was 111 degrees, today we are heading for 114...it's HOT. Then we have a couple cool days of around 92 before it heads back up to today's temp again...enough already, I'm ready for winter. Sadly I don't have air conditioning in the house, only a small unit that will sort of keep one room reasonable, guess I'm not moving too far today. Even so I am lucky, DH has gone to work, he's a mechanic so no cooling for him at all in the workshop, he is going to need some pampering when he gets home.

    So can you all scoop up a few handfuls of snow and blow it my way.

    Oh I wish I could share with you.
    we're expecting 6-10 by the middle of the week along with freezing rain. I can walk to work if I have to but the rest of the family has to be out on the roads.
    i can sympathize with the no A/C issue. we don't have it either.

    Lynn, I wish we could combine your heat and our cold and come up with a nice day :-).

    I have a package on the boat sailing your way. It should be there in about six months. Enjoy.

    I hope the heat you are sending this way is on the El Nino/Nina tides . . . I feel chilled to the bone right now and would love to sweat enough that sand was sticking to me instead of icicles.

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Haha Sandy should arrive just in time for winter. Mind you that would be ok, we don't get snow where I am so it would be novel.

    I think we are on el Nina at the moment, stupid weather patterns is all I know, too much summer rain. I think Deb had the right idea, we need to make a cocktail of the two extremes and get something more comfortable for all.

    You may have all the ice and snow that is coming my way! We are to get ice, then more ice, then 8-12 inches of snow over the next 2 days. I LOVE hot weather and would gladly trade houses with you right now!

    We're expecting snow and snow with ice or rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. I'll take the cold any day before I could live with that heat. At least when it's cold you can layer on and be warm, but you can't take enough off with that kind of heat! I should send you one of my air conditioners. If I had the money I'd send a big one for your whole house to be cool. Sorry Love, I don't envy you. I'll keep my cold snow. Your winters must be lovely.
    Hugs, Jan L

    Jan I'm with you, in winter you can always put more on, get another quilt, whatever but you're right, you can only take so much off and then it is still hot. Relative to what most of you ladies have to deal with our winters (at least where I am) are quite mild, it would be rare for it to get below 25 degrees, mostly it is about 45 to 55 during the day. The other bad side to this heat is the fire danger, we are on extreme alert and everyone lives in fear of the fire siren going.

    But all said and done I wouldn't swap, this is a great place to live despite the vagaries of mother nature. Now where is the box of iceblocks...

    Hi again Lynn, Just heard the weatherman say that our high on Tuesday with be 1 below zero with wind chills to 30 degrees below zero - wish we could "share" the cold and hot - then we would both be comfortable!
