The mornings have been colder but today there was frost on the ground...*8 am* while I went out walking the dog..Brrr. I estimated it was 25 degrees...went inside and checked weatherchannel...low and behold, it was 25!

Yesterday I walked the dog (AGAIN about 7:30) forgot to dress warmly...it was so cold...I guessed it was 30 degrees--and it was...

So...hope you are all planning to keep warm!!!

I am not looking forward to winter this year. Last winter was horrible and I used to love the winter season! I am already thinking about what I can do to keep my husband from complaining that he wants to move to a warmer climate. The electric water heaters we use for our farm animals doubles our electric bill so he starts complaining around the end of January. Maybe I'll buy some ear plugs and I'll keep baking cookies (he likes my cookies).

Not the first frost here but there have been some real heavy ones lately, there was frost still on the ground in the shade at almost noon today. Back to wearing heavy clothes to stay warm. I've got two lone tomato plants still alive (also peas but some critter ate some of them), covered with plastic for a couple days now, I've got a bunch of tomatoes on them, and I'm seeing how long I can keep them alive. Tomatoes in November maybe? I've done it before...

Not looking forward to heating costs...I bought a bunch of kerosene since I don't think the price will stay so low much longer. I'll be glad when I have my 20 acres of woods around me to keep me warm without shelling out money to big oil...

I love late fall/ early winter up north. The low temperatures are a little more tolerable there than here in Florida. The high humidity down here makes the cold go right through you. I can shovel snow at 32 degrees wearing a t-shirt and jeans but in Florida I'm FREEZING when the mercury drops below 50. 90 percent humidity makes things miserable.

Lasy year's winter was really, really rough. It's unlikely we'll have another one like that.

It's cold in North Carolina right now too (40s are a low this week).

I'm not used to the snow (been in NC for 10 years and haven't lived in VT since I was little). Hopefully this winter won't be too bad.
