What a Scrooge! You look at a beautiful Christmas montage and all you can think about is utility bills?

OK, no lie.

Literally the first thing that came to my mind when I saw that photo is "I would fall and bust my arse on that sidewalk."

Sorry but that's the honest truth!

Today is the first day it feels like Fall in Southern New England... finally! This season is off to a late start. We haven't even had our first killing frost yet. Very unusual.

So that means it's an anomaly and not the norm but it's definitely not my preference for November.

Today's high here was 84 which I didn't much care for but at least it was quite windy. Right now it's 70 degrees and very pleasant outside so I plan to retire to the back patio with a glass of vino in a bit.

It will get down into the mid 60s tonight and that's fine by me. Next week about this time the forecast is for clear skies with lows in the 40s and highs in the 60s and we're planning a patio party with a big fire in the fire pit and it should be fabulous!

We had our hottest day a couple weeks ago. It was 81. High 80s the next few days in Dallas, fall in Texas I guess.

Look at any Thomas Kinkade Winter painting. If you don't experience such a scene every "Winter", you do not have a Winter season where you live! and Winter is awesome IMO, unless you're old and frail in which case I can understand the worries of slipping and falling.

No need to apologize for being clumsy.

Yep I guess so. We've got a party planned for next Friday - highs in the 70s during the day and lows in the 50s during the night - perfect patio party weather! Very typical fall in Texas, though the highs in the 80s this week are unusual. Glad they will be dropping to the 70s and 60s in a few days.

Or for disliking snow and ice on a regular basis! Don't worry - I'm not apologizing. We're good!
