    First time I can remember ever having snow in November. We didn't get much. But school had delayed opening today.

    My kids got a day off.

    It never got over freezing today. And it was really very cold. Down into the low 20s

    Just went out and opened up all the faucets around the property to avoid freezing. Cold as a witches tit out there. Sat our daytime high was as cold as the coldest night of this winter season. Today it reached 60 occasionally when the sun was blaring. But it will be in the teens by morning. The dog loves it!

    Where I was, there was almost no snow at all. At higher elevations and on the west side, there was quite a bit.

    My X is from russia and she thinks folks from Oregon are pussies when it comes to snow. I have listend to her go on about it at great length.

    Meanwhile on the right coast Portland Maine has been enjoying rather warm weather during most of this fall.

    We've all noticed this, right?

    During years when the left coast is colder and wetter, the right coast typically has milder winters?

    That random walki of the jet stream is the cause of this.

    It is snowing lightly again. I don't drive in snow, as I have so little experience with the stuff. But I have to fetch my kids for thanksgiving.

    White Christmas, OK, I am cool with that. White Thanksgiving? Who writes this stuff?
