The temperature gauge outside reads 69 degrees. If this were April or early May, I would be happy. It's the end of January.

Our Snow Trip last weekend almost wasn't a snow trip. There was no snow around the cabin that we stayed in, as opposed to last year when we had to shovel our way in. There was snow at the ski area and at the tubing area, but you could see patches of brown beginning to peak through on the tubing runs. People were wearing shorts at the ski area. It was too warm.

Now, I'm not meaning this to be a post on global warming, all I'm saying is that I want rain. I want snow. I want to be dressed in layers and blasting the heater in my car. I want to wake up to the sound of the rain gutters working over time. I watched the news this morning and was actually jealous of the east coast and the snow they have been getting...though I know that most are ready for the snow to stop, I get that too.

All I'm saying is that I'm ready for it to be winter. A real northern CA winter with lots of rain, flood warnings, power outages and all. Yep, I'm ready for the rain.

LOTS of snow here too!
another 5 cms arrived in a whiteout of flurry this a.m.
and our -35 degree celsius temps {&that's before dropping it even lower factoring the wind chill!!}are definitely requiring MANY layers, car heater blasting, but thankfully no pwr outages ")
