U is for unusual and that has three u's!
We had an unusually warm day. It felt almost like summer, a balmy 69ºF. I would like to have gone for an orchard walk, but there is something about hunting season that makes me a bit uneasy about being off in the trees.
It doesn't quite feel like December in upstate New York when we can go outdoors in a tee shirt and shorts and not feel cold. We're supposed to be donning thick coats and wrapping long scarves about our faces. We should have mittens on our hands and hats on our heads. Would you believe I've actually seen people buying sleds in the stores? Some little kids are going to be terribly disappointed this Christmas if the snow doesn't show up. It's not like we can just "drive to the snow" around here...
If the forecast is accurate I will wake up to more seasonable weather tomorrow morning. It might even be cold at the bus stop, but it looks as if a blanket of thick snow is a long way off. There isn't much to do outside right now even when the weather is nice. Perhaps Cabin Fever will set in and we will find a park to walk in. I know of a great one where the birds will eat out of one's hand. Yeah, I think we need to go there.
