The frost was so heavy this morning, I thought it has snowed. And, it's 11:30 and it still hasn't melted off, then again it's 32* (no sunshine), so....I guess it can't melt. The weather man said we would have heavy fog...I've seen the fog so heavy along with the temp drop as to cause the road surface to freeze into black ice.

Just for the record....I hate winter!

I used to hate winter when I worked on the highway crew and had to get out salting and plowing roads on Christmas or any day getting called in at 2 AM or any early hour. Now that I'm retired I tell people I want it to snow. As far as I'm concerned it can snow up to the knee caps of a giraffe standing on his head and I won't care!

Temperature wise, our local weatherman said temps could get close to 60 Christmas day.

Thanks, Oldhag!

I'm hoping it will make a difference, but the house I bought faces south so hopefully that will aid in melting ice in the front of the house more quickly, at least on sunny days.

What bothers me the most about the cold this time of year is that it gets dark so early. Being dark and cold is a combination I do not enjoy.

I used to live in Fairbanks, AK, before moving to Sacramento, CA...then to Louisville, KY...and now near Albuquerque, NM. A blog I follow posted a video today of winter solstice in Fairbanks. Check out https://www.dermotcole.com/reporting...420lgeb9s429hp. It might make you feel better about how KY isn't all that dark in the winter, to say nothing of the cold!

I love each of the four seasons, each holds a certain amount of beauty of it's own.
That being said, just went out to the grocery....if it gets any colder, I may go into hibernation mode!

It was bitter last night - down to at least 17 before I went to bed. I was glad to awaken to the cat cuddled at my feet, nice little fur-covered foot warmer that she is...

But today, the sun is out, migrating robins passing through are singing, and the halcyon days are upon us. The winter solstice is still two days away, but brings magic of its own. Winter sunsets can be seen in their full glory now that the trees are bare, and the winter stars are brilliant on clear nights.

So don we now our warm apparel, and let us make the most of the merriment, magic and wonder of this season.

Winter doesn't really feel wintry to me most of the time, but I have lived in other areas of the US that saw consistent snow cover a good chunk of the winter. I would like at least one or two decent snow events before the winter is over. Very warm Christmas 55-60 degrees, definitely not wintry at all.

Granite, that's the way I've always looked at it. Let us have at least one good snow.
