I woke up during the night last night and realized how bright it was outside. It was the brightness that either hits you with panic because you think you've slept in, or you hope it's Christmas morning and it is going to be a white Christmas. It was white all right, but it's October 27th! For the love of Pete STOP! FINISH! QUIT! NO MORE! HALT! STAND DOWN! END! CEASE! LAYOFF! FREEZE! NO! TERMINATE! REST! BE OVER! COOL IT! DEPART! EXIT! GO AWAY! VACATE! LEAVE! PARADA! ARRET! ANSCHLAG! FERMATA! REMORA! OCTAHOBKA! (Yes, I did use a thesaurus and Google to translate.) Snow, you may return when our driveway is poured, our stucco is up, our shingles are on and our windows are in.

I'm dreaming of a white Halloween!


  1. Cold and raining here. No snow though.

  2. Don't you love it when Mother Nature is like an insuboordinate child, refusing to cooperate? There's warmer weather in the forecast next week so hopefully you will get things moving soon! ...j
