    Well I remember that on the Christmas.com forum was a thread like this, and there were so many replies through the year... I really enjoyed reading that one...
    So I thought maybe we could start it again here (unless it hasnt been posted somewhere).

    How is the weather at Your place today?

    At my place, it is mostly a cloudy day with showers... rain was falling all the morning.
    Temperature is about 22 C, while yesterday was even under the 20 C. Yep, the autumn is here (which is only one step before winter season and of course the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year).
    :D

    Yea dvdguy get used to that. You'll be having Thanksgiving out on the patio. It's still in the 80's at that time. It's still in the 90's now.

    I'm happy to report that I hit snow on the road home from Denver last night!

    Wow snow already. Well I guess it's beginning to look like Christmas your way. How was your cruise? Do you and the Mrs. feel refreshed?

    Heavens no. The last four days of the cruise were spent at sea -- they canceled our stop to Bermuda because of Florence and we were tossed about on the water endlessly. No sleep whatsoever. On Tuesday we left the ship at 8am and didn't get home until after 11pm our time. The next day I took off for Denver and didn't get home until late last night.

    So I'm exhausted and ready for a break!

    I went walking this morning when it was only 77º, but it has gone up to 87º or so now. It was exciting to here that you saw snow, Jeff. It's an unusual week when you dodge a hurricane and see snow. Makes for better stories later. Dvdguy, your greatest pleasure the first year is going to be calling your friends and family and telling them that you're wearing a t-shirt and shorts at Christmas.

    I hadn't even thought of that, Sheep. It has been a long, long week.

    But most exciting for me was this afternoon. I live at the base of the Wasatch mountains -- they tower about 10,000 feet above my back yard. And they got dusted very nicely last night. Best of all though came this afternoon when we had SNOW in our front yard -- can't remember the last time we had September snow. The kids ran out and tried to scoop up the slopy gunk from the driveway...they weren't really snowballs but it all certainly set the mood. We had a fire in the fireplace and everything.

    Down at my university in south Georgia, it's still in the high 80's and low 90's, in my hometown of Atlanta (where I am for the weekend) it's in the high 70's during the day and I think in the 50's at night...nice and cool!

    You can't be serious! Are those four miles straight up? I would love to be that close, yet also have an escape route for when I finally got tired of it.

    Yesterday was flat out weird. No other way to describe it. We live right at the mouths of Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, down from where Alta and Snowbird and Solitude ski resorts are. They get about 500 inches of snow every year. I don't know how much we get officially but it feels like 500 inches every time we get hit and I have to shovel it.

    They call it the Greatest Snow on Earth, and that's because they make money from it. As for me, I like it from the inside looking out.

    Holy smokes!!! Hard to believe that is just around the corner for us (hopefully...if it's going to be cold, it BETTER snow!!!)

    This morning was 61º & it's rainy today! Tonight the low is supposed to be 49º & there are other lows this week in the 40's! After the 40's I know what's next.....30's!!! Brrrrrr!!! I'm just not ready for that! :eek:
