Baby It's Cold Outside

Those are not words I want to say unless I'm singing them in a song.  And even then I want the image to be a faint memory.  Yesterday and last night it rained and stormed all day and night.  Yesterday the high was 65.  Today's high was at 6 this morning and it was only 59.  For me, it's not a good day when the temps fall as the day goes on.  Tonight's temps will drop down into the high 20s.  Tooooo cold for this old body.  It will be hard to say good bye to my Kentucky home and family.  I have spent the last 2 weeks basking in the glow of love and family on the farm with Madeline and her brood.  We have dug into the family roots some more and done some Christmas shopping.  I have played with the boys and watched Christmas shows with Abby.  It's been a wonderful, cozy family time, but now it's cold and the kids (and I think Madeline too) are all wishing for a white Christmas morning.  I want them to have it too.  But I don't want to be in it with them.  So I am hooking up the little orange car and pointing my wheels south.  The temps are in the low 70s in south Georgia.  Now that kind of Christmas weather appeals to me.


  1. I totally agree that cold weather and snow are highly overrated. It was 80 here in San Antonio yesterday but a cold front from Canada just moved in and it is 46 right now with a high of 70 predicted. Tonight will be 30 degrees but this will blow east in a day or two and it will warm up again, probably not to 80 degrees though. Unfortunately, the cold will move east.

  2. Just realized why you were able to spend time in Kentucky this early. That was a bum deal and could have been even worse had there been a fire or the call had been real. Get to a warmer climate ASAP.
