Who ordered this weather?

There's a cold wind blowing out of Mordor-on-the-Lake to the northwest. Today's high temperature was 56 degrees, and that was at about 0300.

It was fifty when I woke up, should hit forty-five somewhere around noon, and despite clear and sunny skies, the mercury will cross into the thirties about the time the sun re-crosses the horizon, on its way to a good hard freeze tonight. It was a swell Injun summer while it lasted.

And now for the part of the year that makes Gunsmith Bob refer to the place as "far-off frozen cold north yankee land".

Remembering your posts from last winter, might be time for the preemptive purchase of a very strong light. I got one of these and it's made a huge difference in my energy and alertness levels. http://www.amazon.com/BlueMax-Full-Spectrum-Dimmable-Desk/dp/B000KU7NBO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1321450986&sr=8-3

Works for me, warm weather this late in November is just unnatural!

Of course, now the distaff whining about Florida will commence. *sigh* :)

Guess I'm weird. I like the darker, colder parts of the year. Of course, Irish Woman claims I'm half cave troll, so that may just be par for the course.

And to think that I've ended up moving from VA, to just the other side of Mordor from you.

I think I went on my last bicycle ride until April here in beautiful Cleveland. Our motto here is "hey, at least we aren't Detroit!"

Our weather, economy, and pitiful sports teams combine to make you want to just down a bottle of vodka while watching the bath water turn red.

A friend said full-spectrum lamps and st. John's wort weren't doing it for him in SAD season, so he moved from chilly Philly to ft. Lauderdale.
Seemed to do the trick.
