a cold december

I read recently that December was going to be fairly cold this year, perhaps colder than even January and February.

When I woke up this morning, the outside temp was around 44 degrees (F). It's about 28 degrees (F) in late afternoon.

The wind this morning was gusting up to 40 miles per hour, creating a roar that I could hear inside the house. Even in the sheltered, wooded townlet, you could feel the wind ripping through the air.

It has already rained for almost two days. Snow or ice is next.

Looks like December is going to be cold.

It's the wind that always catches me off guard.

here in montana, we've had some serious winter this week with snow and temps below zero. So glad we have a greenhouse.! :) Our guests appreciate it to.!! When the winds whip up .. it's truly a test of constitution.

Stay warm all

Take heart! This week's forecast is chilly, but next week's is in the 40s--here, anyway. (And at this time last year, we had several inches of snow!)
