Crappy weather

112 posts in this topic

Its finally winter weather time. Its about 40 and windy after a rainy day. Tomorrows high is supposed to be 39. Going out anywhere is absolutely out of the question, cold weather puts a damper on just about everything. So we're coping the best way we know how, a fire going in the fireplace, some pizza and, soon enough, a viewing of Anchorman, because it remains the best movie ever made. Is there any better way to kick off 6 months of cabin fever?

That's how I like it.

My favorite is when it's snowing very heavy, the world stands still at night, you're inside, under a big blanket, some hot cocoa, a good movie, some loved ones, etc.

We tend to watch horror movies though--a night we're all stuck in brings on The Stand, or some other Steven King marathon.

Haven't seen Anchorman yet.

November is a gloomy, grey month around here - this year is no exception.

Haven't seen the sun lately.

I actually prefer the clear,cold and bright of January to this miserable stuff.

Winter is my favorite season hands down. I hate the heat, and snow just makes everything purdy (until it becomes that slushy crap). Unfortunately on Long Island we see mostly noreasters which are much more irritating than a heavy snowstorm. Nothing pretty comes out of a noreaster.

Actually starting to get crappy this evening, but today it was actualoly nice here in Columbus, Ohio.

Drove around with the top down, and took my son to school yesterday AM with the top down.

right now though, I am inside listening to the stereo and avoiding rain. Methinks November has come at last.

We've already had a couple light snows (although it melted away as soon as it hit the ground). I like winter until about mid-January when the temps start diving down into below zero digits and the winds pick up. December is usually pretty mild for us. January and February are the months we get the arctic blasts from the north.

I don't really mind the snow until later in the season when you're anticipating spring and it just won't stop. I'm not a fan of the slush-mush you get when the temps go above freezing and my black car gets nice and dirty.

Yeah, we're getting a wave of wet warmth ahead of what you guys are getting out west. It's supposed to be as warm as 64 today, with lots of rain... then plunge into windy 40's tomorrow, and remain in the 40's for highs all week.

I guess it's time to think about comfort food... homemade soups, rosbif, cheddar biscuits, etc. I guess the instinct is to fatten oneself up for protection from the cold.

Uggg...it snowed a little this morning.

Also, my couch was not designed for two people to sleep on. Plus, I got drooled on. Ew!

Talk about perfect paper writing weather. It's holding 70 outside, but it's cloudy and windy and humid...oh, and it just started raining again. There's a tornado watch good until 7 PM, too.

Do I dare watch Brokeback Mountain? I bought it the day it went on sale on DVD, but never watched it after seeing it 4 times in the theater. If I do, I'll need plenty of kleenexes.

I could move to Savannah, but not anywhere inland.

Nice and sunny and only 80 today in Phoenix...the days are too short, though...daylight by 6:30 or so and dark by 6:00 PM... Speaking of Ohio weather, my sister said it was yucky in Dayton this week, her flight back last night was delayed in Charlotte for 2 hours, didn't get until almost 1 this morning, flying back to Columbus via Chicago tomorrow afternoon. I don't know how she does it. 75k FF miles so far this year. Will be back here for Thanksgiving, though we are thinking of going to Ohio for Xmas to visit our Mom and brother..can't get them to come out here.

I had a job lined up in Savannah, but couldn't unload my house here in Ohio. Savannah is beautiful. Biggest problem is that there is almost no middle class there...everyone is either loaded or poor. Plus the hurricane thing doesn't do much for me.

But Savannah is a great place to be. I lived for over a year in Atlanta and moved back to Ohio, Atlanta was a bigger city than I wanted to live in.

But I liked the climate.

37 and blustery wind here <I'm back in the U.S. BTW>

Have the fireplace going and all the heavy curtains closed. My house sits on top of one of the tallest hills around and the back of the house faces due west with no tree cover. That side of the house is getting absolutely pummeled by the wind. Every once in a while I can feel the house shake from the wind... which is disturbing because it's a stone house.

I have an open-ended offer for a job in Macon, but I'll never take it, especially with the economy in a funk.

Macon is a nice place to live, but it is HOT. It is in the center of the state, and it is lower in elevation than Atlanta..so it gets ungodly hot in the summer.

But yeah, it's scary to think of doing anything with the economy in such a funk.

Sounds like you and the BF need to cuddle up on the couch with a good movie and a good bottle of wine.

I'd settle for a beach in Tahiti myself.
