Cold already?

I sure don’t like this daylight savings time change. Now I drive in to work heading east with the sun in my eyes and I drive home driving west with the sun in my eyes. I was used to getting to work when it was dark and watching the sun rise through my window, and having some time in the afternoon when I got home to do yard stuff. Now the sun is going down and I’m stuck inside. This is ignoring the cold – it was only 0c (33f) when I got up this morning (outside - yes we have the heater on inside) which probably has already taken out our tomatoes. We usually can pick tomatoes until the first frost, which some years has been around Christmas. This is much too early for it to get cold here. In the afternoon it warms up to around 17c or so (62f) but I would much rather have a longer fall with warmer days. This year it came too fast. Friday we had some light rain, and on the mountains just north of us it came down as snow - not much, but the hills and mountain were all white. I wanted a photo, but by the time we dug out the camera Saturday morning it had all melted. Oh well.

Sunday's weather here in Las Vegas was absolutely brutal to me! I'm a big guy and hot-blooded but I don't think I'm ready for winter here!

Gosh, that is cold for this time of year.

Bring on the Monty! Nothing comes close!

At least you are driving to WORK with the sun in your eyes. As opposed to not driving to work.

sure seems to have gotten cold very fast -- and dark very fast ...
And we just didn't have any summer until August and September!~

So no fall and straight into winter? Ye gods but I don't know how you can tolerate temperatures that low. I'm 100% certain that my blood contains no antifreeze! Think I'd be frozen solid. :)
