Nothing but blue skies can I see

Clear    I am exasperated and bored by our weather this month.   
68° | 36°
Mostly Sunny   I know a lot of you think that sunshine is the BE-ALL, END-ALL of weather (CR) being one of you
50° | 29°
Mostly Sunny   But seriously, the air is dry as dandelion heads. The mountains look the same every day.
61° | 36°
Mostly Sunny   I am a REAL Colorado woman–I love the snow.  It’s November.  Bring it on!     Yes, I know I complained about the blizzards by the end of last year, but that was seven straight Saturdays of four feet of snow.  My car didn’t move for literally months because the snow plows couldn’t get to my street.  That’s extreme snow, and even then, I was happy with it until the very end.  I wrote a book I adore, too, so weather helps me.

Snow please.  I will even accept really moody rainy days.  The main thing is low, drifty clouds lending the day lots of mood and dimension.

  1. I agree with you Barbara! Bring on the rain or snow. I am tired of the dry air,and the pollen being tossed around by all the wind. Even 1 day of a nice drizzle would help.

    I couldn’t agree more. Normally I love the nice, sunny weather, but I was excited to see that we might actually have some precipitation tomorrow. I’m ready to bundle up and get a fire going in the fireplace.

  3. I’m with you, Barbara – bring on the snow! It’s not supposed to be 65F in mid-November…in Wisconsin. Is a dusting before Thanksgiving really asking the impossible?

  4. Yeah, here in Texas today I was laughing at the coffee shop because they play the radio station that starts airing Christmas music November 1, and I was in flip flops and short sleeves. “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” was not a concession but a plea. It was around 85 here today! Ridiculous, just ridiculous. Who’s in charge, we need to talk to them … 😉

    I am not a fan of snow, but I will say I love misty damp days in the Spring and Fall. I call it “haunted moor” weather. It brings back memories of a lot of books I have loved, The Secret Garden, Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, Hound of the Baskervilles, etc. I love to imagine what it would be like to be striding across a field wearing a warm cape and a pack of hounds by my side.
    In slightly more prosaic terms, it is great weather for watching black and white movies and making soup from scratch.

  6. Ah, my fellow romantics! Haunted moor weather indeed.

    I’m happy to report that it’s very cloudy this morning. The dogs and I walked in the sharp cold and there was even a little kosher salt snow coming down. Happy happy.

  7. Come to Michigan! Wet, chilly rain and flying, roiling clouds playing games across the blue, blue sky. What gold and red leaves remain on the trees are holding on for dear life. And then… is it really? Yes! Fat, wet snow flakes mixed with the misty blowing rain drops this evening. Oh, I LOVE autumn!

  8. Scarlet, you’re just trying to make me sob, aren’t you? Yum!
