06 December 2001

Ahh. It's another bright and sunny day. The weather is warm and lovely, going up to 70 degrees.

Of course, it's also December 6th and we're in Pennsylvania. Argh!

When, pray tell, is it going to begin to feel like winter is just around the corner? We haven't even begun to decorate for the holidays. Part of it is that we've both been sick recently (weather related, no doubt). But it also doesn't feel like Advent, so why bother decorating? After all, there are roses and other flowers still blooming outside. Maybe if I had grown up in Texas or something I could handle this. But I didn't.

Please, God. Send a nice Canadian cold front through here soon. Please?
