Brrrrr

I am FAR-EEEEEEEZZZZING! It's been cloudy all day and raining since about 3 PM. The Weather Channel says that it's only supposed to get down to 40 tonight. I think they are crazy. It's already about -2 outside.

AND we are under a flood watch and a high wind advisory.

I WAS excited about the weather because according to the old wives tales, we were supposed to be getting WINTER weatehr -- as in snow. DH, the Air Force meteorologist told me we wouldn't get snow, but I chose to ignore him. Surely the lady in Big Lots who told me about the birds she saw flocking towards the South knows more about weather than a meteorologist, right?

I am totally not one for cold weather. I grew up in FL. I feel comfortable when it's 85 degrees out with about 80% humidity. It's better for my sinuses and it's just so relaxing.

Snow's okay, as long as it doesn't last too long. And any cold weather after Jan. 1 is just wrong.

I actually hate Valentine's Day, but I look forward to it because it signals the coming spring.

So, given all that, I am officially in winter survival mode. I'll be pleasant until Jan. 2, then I get grumpy. My eating will increase greatly, not because of the holidays, but because eating keeps me warm. I will not be going outside unless I am walking to or from the already-warmed-up car. I will be fully armed with tissues and lotion and chapstick at all times due to the dry air. And, I will begin sacrificing fashion for the sake of being warm.

Happy Winter. :)
