Is That All The Colder It’s Going To Get?

I’m not fooling around now. It going to get really cold. Some forecasts are saying it will get down to minus two degrees Fahrenheit (-19º C) by Tuesday night. The highs will be around eleven degrees Fahrenheit (-11.6º C). Get out your long johns (long underwear)! Right now it’s snowing lightly and it’s thirty degrees Fahrenheit (-1º C). On Friday night we received about four inches (10.16 cm) of snow and last night we received about one inch (2.5 cm) of snow. That’s the same amount they are forecasting for tonight–one inch. The cold spell is forecasted to last at least seven days. I don’t think anybody will be mooning anyone in that weather. But then again there are some real crazies out there. Nobody will be seeing my bare behind out in that weather. (Well, no one will see me mooning anyone in any whether.) The first day of winter has not arrived yet, but Old Man Winter is sure letting us know he is coming. Are you sitting on your deck sipping on a piña colada?

We are not looking forward to days being any colder. It has been in the 20s here, with today being 44. Enough with the cold season for me.

I haven't had a piña colada in years (and we don't have a deck)! Brrrr. It's interesting reading how snow has fallen or is coming all around the nation (except where I am of course). We are getting days that look like winter now (relatively speaking of course, a Southern CA kind of winter), but it says it's high 60s. Sounds like hot chocolate time where you are!

Actually I don't think I have ever had a piña colada–at least I don't remember ever having one. Right now it 17º but by Saturday the high is supposed to only be 8º and -6º overnight into Sunday morning.

@RichardMeister In my younger days I used to order those fruity drinks - but it was more margaritas than piña coladas. If you like the taste of pineapple/coconut, you might like it! I can't even imagine below 30s. Today it says it's going to be low 70s at the highest . . . and then showers by tomorrow evening (we'll see about that). Stay warm!

@much2say In my younger days I drank whiskey sours. Right now it's 11º. This weekend is forecasted to be the coldest. Saturday high is supposed to be 9º with a nighttime low of -8º. Then we are supposed to start warming up to 18º on Monday. This is really not normal here at this time of the year. It looks like we'll have a white Christmas. We are supposed to get another inch or so of snow tonight.

@RichardMeister I agree. A hot drink would be ideal.

No winter here in the Philippines. Lately, it's been getting a bit cold & gloomy.
