#winterwinning High Temperatures in the SE for a day... then poof, winter returns!
There's an illusion going on in parts of the SE of winter retreating and summer coming back faster than Santa on a Harley. It's an illusion guys.... winter is winning. I'm using the Hashtag #winterwinning currently. I believe I made it up so if you see it around just know where it came from...
Winter is winning.
It's gaining on us every day in every way!
But in a year when no one is sure on La Nina...
Perhaps it's a Neutral year?
Waiting to see what plays out.
This year has been sort of crazy.
Jason says it was this warm in Virginia.
I wasn't there I can't say.
I have the windows wide open in NC though...
I have a friend in Augusta who wants to put on the AC.
She better stop debating it on Facebook and do it fast.
Soon she will need the heat again.
My kids drove back to sunny Florida.
We went out last night to Glenwood South in Raleigh.
Busy despite the cold weather.
And it was cold last night.
Scotch and a fire pit with the kids at Cornerstone.
They had the out door heaters on.
This morning the boots came off...
No coat. Windows open.
And now the wind is changing.
No longer is it coming in fast from the South.
So long illusions of summer.
Welcome back Winter!
Love the discussion from the NWS
"A sharp arctic cold front will push south across our region"
Cooler air is filtering in again already.
Love their honesty.
"Depending on your model of choice"
We may have some issues weather wise.
I may close the windows.
Looks like rain soon!
Turn off the ceiling fan...
Put the heavy blanket back on the bed.
Monday will be messy in NC....
..and SC and Georgia.
Florida gets rain too!
Except for Miami... maybe.
Yeah... it's that time of year.
So I'm gonna wrap up my presents.
Try not to eat to many chocolate Chanukah gelt (coins)
Go back on my diet, exercise, dance.
(Jalapeno Donuts at Solas ...)
And watch and wait for winter weather to descend.
It will. Because winter is winning.
And El Nino?
Time will tell!
Desperado may not be able to make up his mind.
But Mother Nature isn't playing games!
Maybe head games ...but she's got the wild card ;)
