It’s very calm outside and I guess it is the calm before the storm. To be honest we’ll only have gale here but that’s enough when it also will rain a lot and also snow a lot at the same time. But the predictions have changed slightly. We’ll most likely get less snow than they first predicted but colder and with more rain. I don’t like the combination rain and cold, it sort of invites to slippery roads and car crashes. The snow won’t start to fall until early Thursday night.
But I think the roads will be warm enough so that no black ice shows up, well black ice never show really 🙂 It will stay chilly until Saturday when it gets warmer again. I don’t like this but the Farmer’s Almanac says that if snow falls on unfrozen ground the winter will be mild so I hope that’s right 🙂 We had a very mild winter last year and I would not complain if we got one more 🙂
Nothing much has happened here to be honest. The only thing I’m interested in now is how it goes in the US elections. I hear worrying things, that the republicans might get majority in both places. Normally that would perhaps not be something to worry about but since the Tea party took over it definitely is something to worry about. Those people do scare me and I feel they are no better than the Taliban’s in Afghanistan. I can only hope that there still are some sensible people left in the republican party that might be able to do something.
It’s time for a pot of tea, something to eat and to keep that fire burning in the stove, from now on the temperature will start to drop.
Have a great day!
