Today winter fully announced itself in these parts. We have had a few minor brushes with it this last month, but not like today. The weather has gone from bearable to nasty in short order. It has been spitting mixed rain and snow much of the day, and tonight will be more of the same. The next few days will likely be similar, if not colder. Good time to sit home doing what ever and stay off the roads. It is going to be cold and nasty, and slick as snot on the roads when dark falls and the temps hold below freezing I’m thinking. The ground may be warm enough to keep it from getting too bad, but I’m not going to brace Mother Nature and find out. I know I can probably handle the roads, but I have no idea what the person coming at me on these narrow back roads is going to do, and I don't like black ice. Conditions for that are going into the prime range right now.

At least tho, I do have propane, my bills are paid up till the first at least, and the weather is supposed to get a touch better by the end of the week. So I guess it's hunker down and keep warm time. Now if there were some way to avoid the Christmas cheer that will be flooding the air, I’d be ok for sure. But that stuff is depressing anymore rather than something to look forward to. Oh well, ya'll have a good one, what ever it may be, and those that live in cold climes, stay warm.

Yep, it's making it's way over here too. Just saw the weather report, and it will start out as rain tomorrow, and by evening, turn to snow. Could get up to an inch and a half of snow around here. YUK! It's not December 25 yet dang it!

Rain! Rain! Rain! And a cold rain at that. Me and my sisters attended our uncle's funeral today...he is the last immediate relative on Mom's side. At least it didn't start raining in earnest until we got home but it was misting and windy at the gravesite. They set his coffin under a tent opposite of his actual gravesite on a short stretch of asphalt because the ground was so soft and muddy they were afraid the coffin brace would collapse.

He had a military service and it was so moving. The guy playing taps was better than any I've ever heard...it just choked me up to tears.

He lived in Alabama so the funeral was small....not many relatives left but we all had such a good visit. One great uncle of ours had so many stories of life way back when...where we originated from, life for them during the civil war and so on...very interesting.

Anyway...probably 3 inches of rain by tomorrow night then turning to snow. We may get an inch or two but that's ok....I'm stayin' home where it's WARM!

Yeah, winter is here. Got our first winter storm watch in effect until Wed morning. Might get up to 5 inches of snow.

Looks like winter is arriving on time this year.
