WINTER YET TO COME – Rich Paschall

Winter In The Air, Rich Paschall

It’s not in the air now. It was, but not now. Back in late October winter arrived before we could even rake up all the leaves. In fact, many of the trees still had their leaves. There was no chance to clean up. And snow appeared in time for Halloween.

The problem with early snow is that the Streets and Sanitation Department takes that as the sign to put away the street sweepers and bring out the snowplows. November remained cold, but little additional snow was ever sighted. The leaves came down throughout the month.

Then December brought warmer temperatures. We actually had several days in the ’60s and expect at least one more warm day. I raked leaves December 22 and 23rd in the pleasant fall weather.

No worries about Winter, however.  He will be here soon. You will feel it in the air.

    So far, so good. We’ve gotten snow, but luckily not so much that it cost us a lot of money. Here’s hoping for a moderate — normal — kind of winter.

    Like some previous years, Winter has not yet given us a full blast by mid-January. The backyard homemade ice rink from mid-December still has not frozen through. No worries, however. We know again this year, Winter is yet to come. Be sure to click “View original post” at the bottom to head over to SERENDIPITY for some winter music.


  3. We are having much the same weather here in central Canada, Rich.

  4. We are having the same kind of winter. We got snow in November, nothing except a dusting and rain in December and a lot of days in the 50s and 60s. We are in one of the hot spots, areas that have already exceeded the 2 degree Celsius maximum. It is so frightening. Whatever OTHER issues we may have, this one is the one that frightens me to my core.

    Maybe we’ll have a bit more winter, but I’m beginning to wonder if along with losing autumn, we are also losing Winter.
