Fast Forward to Winter

I mentioned earlier that our fall season was dramatically interrupted by winter last week. The news reported that our region has had about 10 inches of snow in the past several days. I guess we're supposed to get back to normal fall weather by this weekend with 70 degree weather.

Bumblebee will be a bit disappointed by the disappearing snow. She really loves a good romp in high snow. Here she is in our backyard playing with Eric. We learned that she really doesn't know when to quit. She played until she got sick. So we're going to have to set the play limits for her.

Eric has a fear that we will be stabbed by falling icicles, so he has been knocking them off the house. I am not convinced that he is actually afraid that we'll be impaled by ice--I think he just likes breaking the ice. Who can blame him?

October has been a strange and cold month so far. Has it been cold where you are?

We just got our first dusting of snow - about an inch - but we need to get used to the white stuff because once it comes - it'll be here until April...

It's been pretty nice here... between 60-75 most days. The nights have been getting colder, which has been great for sleeping. The bedroom windows are still open although everything else is closed.

We had some snowflakes yesterday. But that's quite normal here. What is not normal, is not to have snow on Christmas which has been happening quite a lot lately. And the governments are just arguing about percentages...

It's been QUITE unseasonably cold here in St. Louis. I didn't want to turn on the heat until November, but I had to give in and turn it on in the kitchen so that Jackie-Cat would have a cozy warm place. It's also been super-rainy. Blech! My mom and I keep joking (!) that we got about five days of October and went straight into yucky November.

Today it's 46 degrees, high of 47, low of 41, and rainy-ish from morning showers.
