Perfect Weather

Although it was very chilly last night and the temperature dropped down to 42 degrees, I didn't need to run the air conditioning (yay!) and got some fresh air.  No matter how often I change the filter, the inside air is stale & dusty, and I sneeze constantly.  So this is a nice treat!  Right now it is 58, which is very cold for South Florida, but it feels refreshing to me. Tonight it will dip down again below 50, but will rise to the mid 70s by Tues afternoon.  Since we are so close to the winter solstice, the hours of sunlight are short, but the sky is a pretty shade of blue today. 

I just read that back home where I grew up it's been snowing and the Northeast has been blanketed with a heavy snowfall.  I know snow can create problems and endanger lives, but at least they're going to have a white Christmas this year.  I used to love putting on my snowsuit to go outside to build a snowman.   When there was a lot of snow, my best friend & I would build tunnels made of snow and crawl through them.  No video games, no color television sets, no cell phones or iPods - just homemade sleighs made out of cardboard.  One of my other friends had a tobaggan.  We'd drag it across the street to the golf course where there was a hill and all hop on board and shout "wiiiiiii"  That was before Nintendo. LOL   

No matter where you live, I hope your weather isn't too severe and your day will be full of sunshine.

LOL,
Your stories bring back memories that I haven't thought about for ages.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, rcbbuckeye. Glad you enjoyed it. I just noticed I made a typo again! Grrr.   (toboggan)
Maybe I need to download a spellchecker for discussion boards or just not take these things so seriously! :-)   The reason I wrote "wiiii" that way was because I recently learned that Ninendo did not use an acronym. Some say it stands for "we" as in play together and others say it stands for the noise children make when they're having fun. I haven't a clue but I always thought it was an acronym for a more technical term.

I probably wrote this a little too early. I'm very cold now that the sun has set. Time for socks.

lol, those were the good ol' days. It doesn't snow real good in my neck of the woods anymore. My kids haven't had the pleasure of playing in it like we did growing up. I miss those days.

TC, I guess it must be my body temp, because I was very cold and shivering, but by 3AM I was fine. Slept in a sweatsuit with 2 blankets. Today I finally turned on the heat, but only for about 20 minutes until the thermostat quickly reached 70 so I could shower. Now it's 72 outside so I guess our big chill is over! By Fri it will be back in the 80s again. I guess that's good because it attracts the tourists and tourists spend money. Stay warm!

I cut & pasted this from another board where a member lives in Alaska. :-)

-35 degrees F in Fairbanks Alaska. Truck is plugged in and on the timer for warm up in the morining. Highs for the rest of the week -15 lows as cold as -37. Tempature inversion so 10 to 20 degrees warmer in the hills.
