About Me

My photo
I am a retired English teacher and department head, the mother of three, grand mother of three, and have been married to the same man for 42 years. I subscribe to Dr. PM Forni's concept of Civility. I was born in South Philadelphia and grew up in the 'burbs. I love soft pretzels and cheesesteaks, the Phillies, the Eagles, and San Diego. I love being Mom, Aunt Kathy, Nona Kathy, and Teacher. I spend a lot of time in my gardens in the spring and summer, and in the winter I plan what I'm going to plant. I also am an avid reader and photographer.

Does This Help? or Up To Our Schnutzes...

EVERYONE has been talking about it:  the excessive temperatures and heat indices we've been enduring.  No, there's no climate change, is there?  Today we get a little "break"  -- only in the 90s.

These were taken after just the FIRST blizzard.  Just five months ago this was the 'view,' restricted as it is, from my upstairs office....


The Patio is Under There Someplace!

Would I ever like to roll around in this for a while!

Love it!! Thanks for reminding it. Personally, I'll take snow over heat.

I'd still rather deal with the heat than the snow!! :-)

It used to be that I hated summer and loved winter. As I get older that is slowly shifting. That shift is almost complete now. I really hate winter but don't completely love summer. YET. ;-)

Seems like the East Coast is auditioning for an Extreme Weather reality show.

It's the extremes that are hard to deal with. Here in Seattle we don't usually have extreme weather, but today it's 91 and rising. That's extremely hot for us!

I'd take snow over this oppressive heat any day of the year. Make it go away!!

Did I mention that we are under cold and drizzly skies?

George said...

I posted a picture of snow today as well with exactly the same purpose in mind. I enjoyed your pictures, but still feel very warm.

I put ice cubes in my birdbath yesterday to melt for the birds. I still prefer the heat, but enough already! I went out hoping for cooler weather this morning. The humidity was the first thing I felt. I'm so glad I work in a nicely air-conditioned building.

Maggie said...

I've come back a second time to see the snow. :)

Gilly said...

Ah! I feel much cooler now! Must have a look at my snow pics!

Terribly muggy and humid here, though not as hot as you, but the pollen count is far too high for my comfort!

Thank you thank you. That poem is written with my tongue in my cheek.

Doesn't matter what we like. The world's coming to and end in 2012 anyway:O
