As predicted, we had some weather yesterday and things are looking quite good for more today. The long-range forecast for parts of Virginia and West Virginia include the possibility of a wee bit of snow on Christmas. If this should happen, it will be the very first white Christmas I will have experienced in my lifetime. I didn't even have one while I lived in Montana. My definition of "white Christmas" is one on which there is actual percipitation on that day. I have had a few Christmases that featured snow left over from previous days, but I think it just isn't the same somehow.

Ella! Merry Christmas! Fortunato here. Sorry you're chilly. Personally I think our hemisphere is too damn far from the sun and something ought to be done about it. Presently here in sunny Maryland it's going up to 55 degrees Farenheit, which is adequate but I much prefer 79 and Hawaiian Shirts. If it gets much colder I'll have to resort to underwear (hee, hee) I hope Santa brings you a balmy day. Cheers.

In spring-early summer (and again in late summer-early autumn) we get warm very humid days with late storms....and some of those storms are real doozies, often with hail. Clears overnight then next day it starts all over again.....

Mmario, will you grant that day and dark are not evenly divided right now? We're getting a little more than 6 hours of daylight currently- and much of that isn't full daylight. But you're right- we get it all back next summer.

Today, for the first time in the couple of weeks since I'm back in town a bitter wind is blowing. It's right off the icefields and not tempered at all by the snow on the ground. Not a good day to go wandering.

Joe O, in mid-November I drove through the Sacramento Valley and the Siskiyous from and to the Oregon Willamette Valley. Had several hours of fog in the Sacramento area but otherwise we had wonderful driving conditions- dry freeway, open expansive hills, bright colors in the mountains. Gorgeous. And I fell in love all over again with Dunsmuir. Someday I must go spend some time there...

Still sunny but cooling here. I knew the new moon would bring a change. It's all downhill now, but the snow makes money change hands, so I'll just put a few more spuds in the stew and watch it snow.

Here in Zone 7 on the Northeast Piedmont of NC it has been unseasonably mild--all season. No hard frost yet. Yarrow and calendula actually still blooming, and horror of horrors I still have aphids on the few leaves the drought has left on my roses. The groundhogs have munched my fall garden down to little nubbins, and Catspaw49, if I could catch the suckers I would gladly boil them for 2 weeks after skinning them alive (the skins make really good drum heads for small drums.)

Speaking of groundhogs--my grandmother used to tell this one on her brother Ray. When they were young children in eastern Kentucky the extended family always ate Sunday dinner at their house. Times were hard, and one Sunday their mom fixed a couple of groundhogs. She knew Uncle Clyde would not KNOWINGLY eat groundhog so told the kids before company arrived that if they wanted seconds to say "Please pass the meat" instead of groundhog. When Ray was ready for seconds he remembered he was not supposed to call it groundhog but couldn't remember what to call it. He finally asked his Uncle Clyde to "Pass the Body, please."

It definitely qualifies as a bleak midwinter day here---freezing cold with sleet & snow mixed together---yuck. It does "look" a litle more like Christmas, but that small cosmetic advantage is outweighed by the nasty inconvenience of actually having to go outside and drive through it!

Here in the Sacramento area in Northern California, it has been chilly and wet, with a few nippy days of magnificent sunshine. My sweetie lives 40 minutes northwest of me, near Auburn. She's at an elevation of 2,300 feet (750 meters?), so her air is colder and her skies clearer. She has had frost a couple of times. She's on a ridge that looks all the way across the Sacramento Valley to the Coastal Range. This time of year, she's line up just fright to see sunsets at their very best - and I saw two spectacular sunsets from her house this last week.

I see an interesting entry for the Thread Name Game here. When I looked at the Forum Menu, the first thread was "How's Your Weather?" and the second was "In the Bleak Midwinter."

mmmla... it's a bustling transportation / distribution / retail / high tech city of about 80,000 with two adjoining communities, Dieppe and Riverview, of about 20,000 each. The outlying rural areas are fairly well populated. We are 1 1/2 h from Saint John, Fredericton, Miramichi, and the Nova Scotia border. The population base for retail is large and you could shop for a week and not see half of it. There is some light industrial, so the air is clean. We are twenty minutes from beautiful beaches on the Northumberland Straight... the warmest waters north of the Carolinas.

Moncton was a railway and military town. They are gone, but our motto is Resurgo, and, while the rest of the country is in a recession, Moncton just keeps chugging. There are buildings going up all over the place. Everywhere you look, there's an apartment building going up and people waiting to rent... I just can't imagine where in hell they're all coming from. A good deal of the growth was spurred by the call centre business which located here because about 40 percent of our population is bilingual.

I won't drone on... you can visit Moncton's website or Tourism NB and learn a lot more than I could ever tell you.

Hot and humid here on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Can't wait to fly to Michigan next Friday. No snow to speak of there, but much cooler temperatures. Hope for snow while there. Back to Florida January 3rd. Hopefully it will have cooled here somewhat by then. Actually had a couple of frosts down here last January. Hope to be back in Michigan (living there again) by 2004.

Scientists in the Fifties were predicting global warming and, despite the fact that there were many more naysayers then, temperatures have been steadily increasing.

As kat says, go out and plant some trees.

When Lou died she wanted trees planted in her memory and most family members planted one. When we scattered her ashes in the mountains I bought 48 bristlecone pine seedlings from the forestry service and we planted them at the same time. That was over ten years ago. I went back there a couple of weeks ago and over half of the pines were thriving.

Just been for a noon-time walk, sun low but it is December, just enough cloud to show how blue the sky is. Easterly breeze at the end of Whitby west pier ruffling hair, but I've been colder in June, and very little sea running at all.

Harbour full of bird life, gulls, shags, ducks and more than 2 dozen swans, idyllic.

Of course tomorrow will be mist so thick you can hardly see your feet as they slip on the frost, you can't beat a bit of variety.

Scarily warm. The peach and apple trees are budding, which will mean a catastrophe for the orchards if we don't get a cold snap soon to close the buds back up.

I don't think it's chicken-little stuff, Gnu. I think we need to start paying attention--fast. The body of evidence is getting pretty darned convincing. Read the new book "Eco-Economoy" Developing an Economy for the EArth," by Lester R. Brown. Brown founded Worldwatch Institute in the 1970s and has now formed the Earth Policy Institute to try to spread the word about the necessity of changing our energy and water-wasting habits a.s.a.p. and developing a new economic approach that figures the cost to the environment into the price of goods and services. He's a MacArthur fellow and an exceedingly well-respected thinker about agriculture, the economy and related issues. He lines out a pretty convincing argument.

It's not fun to contemplate what the various environmental depredations add up to, and it's certainly easier to hit the "denial" button and call people alarmists when they try to draw attention to the issues, as kat has done, but ultimately it's our children and their children who are going to pay the price for our unwillingness to make some fundamental changes right now.

think I'll go plant a tree or two ...
