Not a chance...with that 90* day Sunday, my guess is that wonderful global warming will kick in (the one that has given us the record corn crop this year) and gradually we will descend to about 40* in December and stay there until February...lots of rain in the lowlands and lots of snow above 2500 ft.

call that 'NO winter at all...leave the snow shovel in the shed.

With the unemployment in the country, we need a very mild winter for the other people who have no money for heat.

The animals will tell us what to expect....and the 'killing frost will also be an indicator...the very tops of the mountains have been brushed with frost already.

If we get hard are you coming to track out in the deep snow to get my shovel out of the shed .

A doctor friend bought a huge snowblower about 10 years ago from Sears...sold it at a garage sale a while back for $150...was (almost) never used. He said it took up too much space and the snow shovel worked better.
If we have a blizzard anytime before January 20th, I'll come and shovel you out...

Getting back to the 'Wooly Bears...they are the biggest I've ever seen.

Well Cabin Fever set in today and as I was putting away the snowblower for the 4th time this week, i spied a small curled up ball on the garage floor...I paid it no real mind as I pulled off my gloves but I thought I saw it move...and it did...as it began to thaw out, I saw that it was one of those 'Wooley Bears...and did it make me angry...so much so, in fact that I considered stomping it with my boot.

Gently, I took it in my hand and watched as it thawed...

"What a liar you are," I said to him/her...."You and Al Gove promised us a very mild winter...and look at this cold and snow..it's like Alaska here...We should be in the 40's and 50's..."

It made two wiggles and went back to sleep...

I came inside, tipped my hat to the lady and reached for that cask of french brandy...

She asked quizzically, "What are you going to do now?"

"Take a nap," I replied...'got it from a good authority in the garage just now and I believe in giving little fuzzy folks a second chance."

We will see how things shape up when we see him/her next fall...

hope you're warm and cozy, Karen...many are suffering this year...can't wait for your snow pics...

I was thinking last summer that we would probably get an early, cold, and snowy winter. What is February going to be like?

I discovered a radiator that was slushy, something kept telling me to go double check it. Antifreeze is nearly $11/gal.

Change it- cheap when you consider what it does. I switched out my t-stat on my truck to give me a little more warmth on the short ride home. B*tch about diesels- they are cold blooded.

A tank type coolant heater makes it nice and warm in the mornings. It's so warm, the windshield is already cleared and it doesn't even fast idle.

Those 'Wooley Bears who predicted this past winter must have been vacationing from Siberia.

I did learn one important thing...'global warming IS a hoax!!!!

Yes, Friends...

It's September and the 'Wooley Bear in the north land of Wv is entirely soft chocolate brown...

You all know what that means..

to you Karen...I hope it was a wonderful summer.
