Not a fan of Indian Summer

I am definitely not liking the return to warm weather.  It's cruel to tease us with cooler temps and then whoosh back up into the 90s.  Granted, this was a fairly mild summer, but I'm still more than ready for the crisper days of autumn.  It's why I live in the mountains.  I like the years when the neighbors all speculate that we might even see some snow in October....  Alas, in the five years we've lived here, that October snow hasn't actually materialized -- November snow either for that matter.  Whatever happened to snow at Thanksgiving?  It seemed like that was a regular occurrence when I was a child.  My whole family remembers the Thanksgiving the CHP barely allowed us off the freeway because there was 4 feet of snow on the ground and more on the way.  Snowplows couldn't even get to the street in front of the cabin.  We had to trudge up and down a fairly good-sized block carrying all our luggage and supplies for a Turkey bash for 30-40 people in the aforementioned 4 feet of snow.  Never happens anymore... doesn't seem fair does it?   I want my kids (and guests) to enjoy a trek like that :)  If nothing else, I'd like them to see how gorgeous this place looks all decked out with the white stuff.  Begone 92 degree days -- and don't let the door hit ya in the arse on the way out!  Comments?  What's your preference warm or cold? sun or snow? 


  1. Cold in the winter, warm in the summer. I hate 85 degrees at Christmas!

  2. We've been lucky enough to have a few white Christmases up here :)

    But, I'm ready to get back to knitting my huge afghan and there's just no way that's possible until we get back to our regularly scheduled weather -- you know, fall!
