The Weather

Well, after last night's 'low' of 50 F/10 C, it's supposed to get down to freezing tonight. I walked down to the corner store yesterday, and they had the door propped open to take advantage of the 70+ degrees! The kale in the garden is a bit wilted, but it's still struggling on. The extended forecast is for colder weather, so it looks like winter might finally be arriving. I actually deal with cold weather much, much better than I deal with the heat in the summer. Having lived in Alberta through several winters, I tease my friends here in the States that I don't know what they're complaining about, since it never gets cold down here! After you've done a walking paper route with the windchill well below minus 40, the slightly below zero Fahrenheit temperatures here in the winter seem like balmy spring days!

Anyway, I'm looking forward to colder weather. My Other Half, however, is not! When I mention how I like winter she just scowls and growls!

Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
