I'd rather be in Southern CA...

It's now all of 15 degrees F. here in Parma...with the wind chill it feels like 4!!!  Winter snow storm warnings through Wednesday morning...it won't stop snowing & now the winds are blowing in off Lake Erie. 

It's 77 today in Corona, CA...headed toward a lovely 85.  Sunny, of course.  A little warm for December for some, perhaps...but perfect for my liking.  The photo here is Sophie the Cat enjoying a little sun on our balcony, which faced West...if you look closely at the railing above her, you'll see it's almost Christmas 1999, as the garland with it's big C9 bulbs is up, complete with red velvet bows.  December & Christmas as it should be.

I'm trying to get into the mood to shape & then decorate our Christmas tree here...it sure would be easier there with the windows open, sun shining & warm breezes.  We have no sun, of course...it's Clevetown after all.  Snow is still falling & blowing around.  I'm keeping the curtains closed so I don't even have to look at it.
This is our front porch today...as "decorated" as it's gonna get...I'll bet you can't even see the big candy canes with their red velvet bows from the street today.  What a pathetic place to live.

Have I told y'all lately how much Ohio sucks???  Hell has truly frozen over & we live in it.


  1. Me too! It is 50 degrees right now, 8:00pm in the middle of December in Maine - something is wrong in the universe, and I don't like it one bit.

  2. We'd gladly trade with you, Kelly...and Sandi...you know I'd send you this snow if I could. The worst reality is that winter isn't even here yet...hibernation is my goal.

    It took Phil 2 hours to clear the driveway, sidewalk & front porch before we could have dinner...at least it was yummy...eggplant Parmesan...so very good.

  3. Eggplant Parmesean sounds DELISH! Stay inside where it is nice and warm. :)

  4. The same here - drowned in snow, it´s so difficult to get a bus to go to work every day, I just hate it. On Friday, it took me 2 1/2 hours to fetch a registered letter from a post office 20 Minutes away ... it was SO exhausting waiting for busses that never came! Hope it´ll be possible to travel to my mother in Bremen on Thursday, sometimes the trains don´t go through all that chaos. I wish I could stay at home, but then she´d be alone at Christmas. Stay warm and dream of California!
