Chilly Ohians

So, temperatures in Ohio have plummeted. 2 weeks ago it was still fairly warm, hanging around the mid-lower 80's (still 50-80% humidity).

Well, sometime last week we got a tiny bit of rain and the warm weather was gone for good! Now when I walk Gregory to the bus stop at 8:15, there's a layer of frost on everything. The first day I noticed it, was as I was walking back home from the bus stop, through the carpet of leaves. I realized each beautiful leaf was glistening with a million tiny ice crystals. Breathtaking!

(I didn't take the pictures, but that's how it looks)

This morning I finally checked the actual temperature. When I take Gregory to the bus, it's under 40! That's certainly new for me... and it's still Fall! Winter is going to be a whole new experience... but we're excited for it!

Oh boy. You are in for a real shocker this winter! Sorry to burst your bubble but you haven't seen nothin' yet!!!

My advice (from one Arizonan to another living in extreme cold): gloves, hats, scarves, snow boots, down coats, wool socks, and long underwear. Start stocking up.

One plus: shoveling snow is good exercise :)
