Like Caroline, I prefer fall weather, but I've learned that winter comes every year. I expect it will this year as well. I'm amazed how many people are surprised by it. Where were they last year about this time?

Yep. I like root canals too. Kinda like camping alone and feeling movement in your sleeping bag. Riding a motorcycle in a hail storm is a kick. Anybody else like juggling machetes . . Blindfolded?

Nope, I prefer to look back on it

Not really. Extreme cold makes this body ache.And the bright white snow hurts the eyes. I would prefer it to be April or October all year around. I love sleeves, just not in multi-layers.

Cold and snowy beats hot and buggy anytime. I am one of those that runs a little hot and enjoy winter. It can drag on a bit though.

I am so much more a hot weather person than a cold weather person. Once I get cold it takes forever to warm back up! My body gets stiff and it just hurts being cold.

(Damn, this basement floor gets cold in the winter . . .)

A friend and I throw his beagles in the briar patch quite a bit. We shoots bunnies.

"With the world on the verge of a currency war..."

So, what are you saying - we should burn money to keep warm?

Winter is nice until Jan 1, then it no longer serves a purpose.

For those of you who have no reason to step outside late in the evenings, here's a flash: It's here.

I'm not a fan of the winter weather at all but I enjoy the things that come with winter weather. Crock pot meals, holidays, a ton of baking, snuggling in blankets and reading a good book, indoor crafts with the kiddos, KU basketball, and of course taking my freezing cold toes placing them lightly under the warm blankets of the bed and jabbing my husband with them. :-)

By the way, anyone with a scanner hear of any accident that would involve life flight helicopters in the last 30 minutes? We saw a helicopter (not sure what kind) flying very low in Jefferson county near Lawrence. We don't get a lot of helicopter traffic over our house so I'm just being curious.

Have that shovel or snow-blower ready!!

There are those of us who insist on sidewalks cleared of ice and snow in a timely manner.

So there's an initial warning; the next one comes from the city.

Have a wonderful winter!!

I hate winter. Dante made the ninth circle of Hell a horrible cold and inhospitable place. He must have hated winter too.
