December 14/15th – The fifteenth day of Advent

December 15, 2008

Let it snow, let is snow, let it……. rain?

Well, it wasn’t raining in the Colorado Rockies when I went snowshoeing a few years ago, but it is raining in Milwaukee right now.  It is presently 46 degrees, and dropping to 11 degrees tonight, with 11 for a high tomorrow.  Sometimes Mother Nature does get confused.

If you are interested in finding snow, you can visit The Weather Channel.  To find the best winter sport locations, check out these.  If you have to deal with snow in the winter, you may as well make the best of it!  If it stops raining and starts snowing again, I am thinking about getting some snow shoes this winter.  Sierra Trading Post has some good deals on snowshoes right now.

    They are making all kinds of winter weather promises for the Kansas City area this week, it will be interesting to see how it all turns out. No matter what, though, it is going to be bitterly cold here all week which definitely makes it feel like Christmas!!! Hard to believe we are 10 days away from the big day! 8 for this household since the three of us will celebrate our Christmas on Tuesday as we leave for extended family celebrations for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I’m certainly not wanting to rush time by, but I also cannot wait for this week to end as I will be off for two weeks then. Games and reading and films and food and family…that will be the best gift of all!!!

    Yes!! I have 16 days off in a row, too. I am really looking forward to leisurely drinking coffee, reading, writing and family. My son is coming home in five days!! I am very happy about that.
    It is bitterly cold out today – 9 degrees now and dropping to 1. I am afraid to think about the windchill. It is supposed to snow tomorrow, though, so that should mean it is going to warm up a bit. Yup – happy winter!

    Not that different from Milwaukee to Lansing. I had to run the lid of the finch feeder under warm water this morning to open it — the rain had frozen it shut. I am so enjoying your

    Thanks Jeanie. I also thank you for reminding me – I have to fill the bird feeders!!
