Oh, my Gosh! It's December Again
It's the onset:
It's December already!
Granted it is only the first day of December and today's high temperature will be +50 Fahrenheit. But just look at what is coming: 12/2's high will be 31 F., followed by 12/3's 25 F., 12/4's 20 F., and 12/5's 22 F. And those last several days will have snow showers!
Granted the surrounding mountains already boast ski resorts which are open and thriving from November snow storms, much to the delight of skiers and snowboarders, and folks who sit in lodges sipping cocoa and other "invigorators".
How is it that Mother Nature knows that when the sun gets to setting at a particular point in the horizon, the calendar suddenly flips a page and the new page proclaims "Decembrrr!".
My own blood didn't know it was happening! My lingering remnants of last summer's tan seemed proof that it has to be too soon for the coming frigid blasts of Arctic air.
But here they come, right on time, just like clockwork, and once again it is "bundle up, and put up, or shut up" time.
Thankfully I still trust in that old saying which says that "What goes around, comes around."
And, it can't be anytime too soon until we get to "Febyoubrrraway".
