Strange Days Indeed

The end of the Mayan calendar is what a lot of people have been talking about today.  While I don’t think anyone truly believed it was an apocolyptic day, it was certainly a strange weather day.  It started out with whipping wind and driving rain, and I saw a rainbow briefly while I was out running errrands.

When I got home, the sun and clouds and spritzes of rain were all out at the same time.

I was rather taken with the sun lighting up the trees around my yard against backddrops of dark, eerie clouds.

I felt a little shiver looking around while I took these.  The temperature was oddly warm (nearly 50° F) for the first day of winter in New England and I couldn’t help but think of all the odd weather this area has experienced over the last year and a half.

Even Teddy thought it was a rather blustery day:

I know that busy days are ahead for us all.  If I don’t get back to the blog (I hope that I will) before Christmas, I wish you all a very merry one.  Hold your loved ones just a little bit tighter as we keep the families of Newtown CT in our hearts.

  2. After being thankful for our unusually warm weather during November and into December, I am now complaining that I am weary of the white stuff that has been falling from our skies for the past far-too-many days. I must confess it is beautiful, but really! After awhile, it becomes less beauty and more troublesome.

  3. Whoops! Meant to wish you and your family the very best holiday season before I hit that “post comment” button – so here it is – my wish that your days and nights are filled with sparkle.

    • Thanks very much Carol. It has been chilly since I wrote this post, but the most snow I’ve seen is the snow here on WordPress!

  4. Happy holidays to you too! I hope the weather gets back to normal soon. Last winter was the winter that wasn’t for us…and all the plants paid for it. At least with normal weather we know what to expect.

    • Thanks Dawn. That’s quite true about last winter, and winters just don’t seem like they were when we were kids, do they? I suppose I could have it wrong, but it seems like by Christmas time there had already been snow on the ground a few times. Now (with the exception of the bizarre “Snowtober” last year) it seems we are often still waiting for the first snowfall come Christmas.
