We didn’t have anyone over for Thanksgiving because there was this blizzard. This entire month aside from maybe three days, has been well below freezing and it feels like January. We had a lot of snow and it didn’t stop until Friday morning. This wasn’t a light, fluffy snow. It was as dense as cement and very hard to snowplow. I had to plow out the road six times to clear it off. First plowing was the top 6″. And had to use chains on the tires and 4W low drive. Then the sun came out and I baked some cookies today. Next weekend, if it doesn’t do anymore global warming, I will have a delayed Thanksgiving for everyone.
Even very furry Panda refused to go outside. The cats all lay with their stomachs facing the fireplace to heat their furry tummies. Luckily, just hours before the storm, I spent 8 hours chopping and moving and stacking several cords of firewood. This was much delayed, normally I do this in October at the latest but my torn tendons in the left knee and blown out left shoulder made this impossible.
Several dear friends came by to cut firewood for me while I was in crutches and for that, I am tremendously thankful. Nothing is better than a good family and great friends! I hope everyone had a happy holiday, by the way. The low for tonight will be 12º F. This is not normal for us. Here is the next 24 hours for us: more snow.
Half of the nation will be warmer than usual tomorrow and half will be colder than normal and as usual, it is my half. The NOAA gang promised that this winter will be much warmer than usual…for MY half so of course, it isn’t. And it was supposed to be colder than normal for Arizona and New Mexico. Again, totally wrong.
NOAA will, of course, declare this the hottest November, ever. What may be happening is, the cold cycle weather from the Arctic may be shifting its locus so that the cold plunges will first be over the Atlantic Ocean and then shift relentlessly eastwards until it hammers Europe just like in 2011, and so forth. Fun stuff!
