A Frrrrrrreezing Friday Five


Ah...the official RevGalBlogPals' Friday Five (illustrated by a view out my office doorway):

1. What is the thermometer reading at your house this morning?
I think it was something like 10 degrees Fahrenheit, although taking windchill and my lost gloves into account it felt a heckuvalot colder.

2. Snow—love it or hate it?
I like it as long as I don't have to drive in it. If you have any tendency at all toward claustrophobia, avoid driving in a blizzard at night.

3. What is winter like where you are?
Our weather has fluctuated quite a bit over the past few years...after several years of eerily warm winters -- one year I was out mowing the lawn the first weekend in December -- we're back to winters like the ones I remember as a child, with tall snowbanks and regular snowfall at least a couple times a week.

4. Do you like winter sports? Any good stories?
Does birdwatching count? Or NCAA basketball? Oh -- wait -- I do enjoy freestyle skiing -- as a spectator, of course. Those people are cwazy, but fun to watch.

5. What is your favorite season, and why?
My favorite season by far is fall -- the sights and scents of autumn, the moderate temperatures, the harvest.

You have to buy extra gloves-about now-when everything is on sale. Ditto for those earmuff things-110o-that go around the back of your head. If you go to a discount type store, Marshals, they're practically giving them away.

Be still my heart, I forgot Basketball. I should be ashamed!
Good play...twice!

Driving in a blizzard at night sounds terrifying!

I don't have claustrophobic tendencies at all. But tonight, driving in the snow, at dusk/dark, on roads that haven't seen a snowplow in hours, regularly losing control of my car for a split second (or a whole one), I could feel it. I was tempted to park my car where I was and walk the several miles home, in spite of the hill, the traffic (no sidewalk), the snow, the cold...at least I wouldn't have been in the car anymore!

Good play...

driving in a blizzard in the country is hard enough -- haven't tried it at night
