No Snow Yet, but Wow is it Cold!

United States
November 10, 2017 5:43am CST
Our fall season is leaving us and bringing the colder weather on its tail. Today the wind is supposed to whip up to 50 mph, and the temps will drop throughout the day. Hubby brought in 50 gallons of kerosene last night to add to the fuel tank. We shouldn't have to worry about running out of fuel for a little while anyway. There was snow forecasted a couple of days ago, but that forecast has gone the wayside. That is the one thing about New England, if you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes it is bound to change. So with our winter coats and mittens, we will be heading out the door soon to brave the elements. Glad that there isn't snow yet. Not looking forward to driving in it. May your day be sunny and bright even if there are clouds in the forecast.

Even Scar thinks it is too cold out this morning, he's gone out a few times and came back in within 5 minutes every time

I have to try to convince our older cat to come inside. She came in for a short time last night and went right back out.

@JolietJake my older cat came inside yesterday and plunked herself on the heater vent for the night. She did go back outside today. I am wondering if she will come back inside before I leave for work.

@amadeo I guess we will have to wait and see what Mother Nature has in store for us. Doesn't matter what "they" say we will get. It is all up to her.

It is getting dark outside now by 4:30. I do not like it when it gets dark so early.

@LadyDuck I am glad that I don't have to travel far to get home if I am out shopping after work. Often times it is dark when I leave the store. It only takes about 15 minutes to drive home.

Not a flake here either, thank goodness, but it's way too cold for me. Even Doodles shook his legs from the cold outside. Poor kitty!

It is supposed to be warmer tomorrow, but night time is chilly. Not a happy camper at the moment. I am a whiner.

In cold weather, it is the chill rather than the tiredness which makes us lazy in the mornings. Yet we also enjoy having a cup of tea in our blankets or quilts.

We had snow just enough to cover the car windows on Thursday. That was plenty for me.

@Courtlynn Hubby keeps telling me that we will one day head to points of interest near us. We live so close to many, but time and finances keep us grounded.

We are getting a cold snap this week, but looks like it will warm up to normal temps next week. Rain is in the forecast for Monday so I hope the cold has gone by then or it will turn to snow.

I would rather stay inside where it is warm to watch it fall from the sky and accumulate on the ground. Hate driving in it.

Not very very cold but cold enough to put the stove on for a little while. My youngest bought a gas cylinder as I cannot lift anything too heavy at the moment. So that was very welcome indeed and he finished off all the dinner and more than that.

@ElusiveButterfly I just saw on the news that it will be in the low 30's this weekend. Luckily, Saturday we don't have to get up and go anywhere early, so no messing with ice on the windshield. However, on Sunday we will head to church. I am hoping that it warms up quite a bit before 9 am rolls around.
