I think we are going to be very fortunate down here - only 1 cool day on Friday. I'm deliberately not stating temperatures because I don't want anyone to get upset with me. LOL

So, we have Rick, who's happy to see the oncoming cold; and Gale - who has already escaped that cold. How is everyone else dealing with our oncoming Canadian winter? Personally, I'm shopping on line for some warm weather getaways!

Don't know if they do, but I just hibernated my bicycle for the winter, I just put shy of 1100 klicks on it this season. I also tuned up my grass and put it to sleep for the winter.

Well that was a wasted effort today. Went to crappytire, asked for price on michlin tires on sale at 25% off. Sorry that was a miss print in the flyer. Asked for a price anyway. Running 19 inch tired for summer but wanted 17 inch for winter because 19s are way to pricie. They could not do the conversion so I would get the same over all size. I knew the size but wanted them to verify that I was right. They could not do it so I walked out saying I would go to a tire store who had experts on staff. Rick -- where did you get your Blizzaks???

Snow is so lovely...to look at!
Kind of weird though. We hear all the 'winter' traditional Christmas music as we go about our day at the pool or shopping in summer clothes. One day I'll be back for the winter scenes but not just yet.
Not sweltering either LOL!

I have one question. If Retired is retired why is he waiting until now to get snow tires quoted and installed?

Totally different day today. We're getting a very slow melt here - which is good. Haven't heard yet if Buffalo is faring as well!

Apparently not good, with the snow soaking up rain more weight , more roof collapses. Kinda glad I live in a banana belt.

Well, we USED to live in a banana belt anyway. Got a really great "shock" last Sunday talking to my sister in London - where they had NO SNOW - while I was watching it fall on the deck outside my kitchen door!
