When we first came down from north GA, we used to see people all bundled up in winter clothes while we were running around with a light jacket or sweatshirt. We'd laugh at them since it didn't seem cold enough for bulky coats and scarves.

But that was in 2005. How things have changed.

The winters started feeling colder a few seasons ago. Last year I actually bought a fake-down filled jacket. Now, with the low temperature in the thirties, I'm wearing it. No, I wouldn't have thought daytime forties and fifties were so cold ten years ago. But this is now.

Guess my blood's getting thinner. Wish my body was!

The azalea blooms that thought it was spring, are dead. The green buds on the trees are calling it quits. The Christmas cacti are having to be taken in or covered up. The birds going north are camped at our bird feeders.

The only good thing is that we have no snow.


  1. That is so funny, a fake down jacket !
    The good news is now you are a native.

    cheers, parsnip

  2. I've seen shots in a photoblog from the Carolinas with snow, so all along the seaboard America's getting hit by the winter in one way or another.

    1. It's coming down pretty far! Just not here, thank goodness!
