45 - Winter Is Coming

45 - Winter Is Coming

Week 45 - Monday 11/6 to Sunday 11/12

In the Northeast, winter is heralded by the last of the fall colors fading to brown and mornings are crisp with a touch of frost on the lawn. People start breaking out the heavy coats, scarves and earmuffs to battle the blustery winds. In the Midwest, the fields are turned under to await the new crops to come in spring. The Northwest’s normally rainy weather is made gloomier by shorter days. The South is invaded by legions of Snowbirds fleeing the aforementioned signs of the coming season. In Southern California we really don’t get any clear-cut signs that actual winter is upon us, so we just call it “Winter” when the days are cool enough that the dog needs a sweater.
