Winter Is Coming…

It had been raining the past two days. This morning when I left for work it felt a little nippy.

So when I opened to door at 7pm tonite I was ill prepared for the barage of cold gusty wind that swirled viciously about me.

Instantly transporting me to the “north pole”. It is now dark and cold here, these temperatures in October are not the norm for my part of the world.

Usually the cold has to do a bit more roughhousing before the heat finally gives up and retreats. But this year summer has been evicted without preamble.

Myself and many others I assume, were not prepared for today’s weather.

I sprinted to my car and headed for the warmth of home.

One and all are settled under the covers. We shall emerge reluctantly in the morning for tomorrow is another day.

Somehow winter slipped by while I was distracted and caught me unawares.

  1. I love your phrase, “this year summer has been evicted without preamble.” It’s true here too; we had a 20 degree temperature drop overnight! Brrr! It’s freezing out there 😫

    1. Thank you. The cold is here doing what it does.

  2. I read another post where the person stated that the weather went from summer straight to winter without stopping in autumn. That is a huge leap. I feel for you. I have never experience winter before, but I can just imagine how you feel. I hope that you will have a blessed day.

  3. I enjoy the way you string words together, and the photos you selected are perfect. “Usually the cold has to do a bit more roughhousing before the heat finally gives up and retreats. But this year summer has been evicted without preamble.” This describes accurately how we’ve been feeling about the change in seasons. The seasons have no regard for the calendar anymore. Blessings and keep writing! ♥

    1. Thank you.

  4. I love the cute dogs ❤️❤️❤️. And I agree with you about the cold! Although I love the snow… Silly me 😋. Beautifully written, friend.

    1. Thank you.

  5. I love the cute dog pictures too. 🐶 My dog is not happy with the rain and cold either and is refusing to go outside for long.

  6. It has snowed here a few times over the last month but this morning it actually stuck. I am not a fan of snow (guess we all need a little pep like that dog in the pictures 🙂 ) Stay warm!

  7. Smiles.. Your last phrase! – “……..everyone else”😁

    Sure the weather will become friendly with time. 🤗

  8. Haha..I feel you. I don’t do too well in the cold either and maybe that’s why get caught off guard each year. Also love the pictures.

    1. They seemed to echo just what I was feeling.

  9. Winter is my favorite season. When I tell people that I instantly get placed in the weirdo category. I think Winter is the best season of all; I love the weather, the atmosphere, the food, the clothes and it doesn’t snow much in Texas, but I love that too.

    1. I do so love the winter as well, especially since there is an issue with hyperhydrosis…but it was shocking without the usual transition…lol

  10. Super hot here and windy and dry – which is why I love hearing about your cold. It’s amazing that this little planet 🌍 can have such different weather all at once

    1. Isn’t that the truth.

  11. ❤❤

  12. In central Ohio, we experienced about three weeks of blissful autumn. Following a blistering hot September and an abbreviated fall, we can feel winter’s grasp slowly and surely wrapping her Arctic pleasures around us.

    1. Love your descriptive words.

  13. Stay bundled up! Fortunately, it’s not too cold here in Durham, NC. Where are you located?

    1. Texas, not too bad generally, but we are currently experiencing the freeze. Ugghhh.

      1. Gotcha- stay safe and warm then 😀

        1. lots of hot coffee and teas.
