Ouch broken bones hurt, and winter is the worst time to break them too. I also live in Michigan, and it's getting colder here. I know I am stocking up on inside activities like crochet, and some new recipes.

 I feel every one of those previously  broken bones during the winter months :unsure:

 

I walk out side for exercise / stress relief most of the year  so during the winter months I utilize my  stock pile of walk at home DVD and exercise DVD so I dont have a excuse to slack on my exercise  ( and most of them are fun any way :P )

 

I live in northwestern PA so I winterize my car (blankets ,extra coats ,sweats ect...) Stocking up on non perishables  is second nature when you grow up/ live in the "snow belt " :ph34r:

 

I live in an area where I can take the bus to work and do so especially during the winter months. That way some one else is driving ( dealing with the crappy roads ) while I drink my coffee :D and  If the bus aint running I dont need to be out there :lol:

They are predicting one to two FEET here between tonight and Sat. AM!!!! That being said, it's coming up from the southwest which means that often, they split up at the mountains which make the "bowl" we live in in my town. So we might not get nearly as much as the rest of the area.

 

I'm prepared though. Filled my gas tank yesterday, got plenty of food at both the house and the shop (just in case I can't make it home). I weatherized the windows this morning, got my snow shovels and ice melt ready, wore layers to work this morning and I even remembered to bring gloves. I keep a pair of boots here at the shop and one at home.

 

Sometimes when it's icy I really can't get home. I'm less than a mile from the shop but I live at the top of a really steep and long hill. I have a camp pad and sleeping bag here at the shop for emergencies, and even a pair of fuzzy warm slippers. If I'm posting into the wee hours tonight, that means I camped out. The cat has plenty of food and water so she'll be lonely, but well fed.

 

By Sunday it's supposed to be back into the upper 60's so whatever we get will melt quickly. :)

gluten-free since June, 2011

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

 

BUT I CAN STILL PLAY MY GUITAR AND THAT"S ALL THAT MATTERS!

Florida has a very mild winter.  You'd be surprised.

That's cheating!

 

We got snow on the mountains earlier this week. I was pretty excited about it because nothing is more beautiful than snow on the mountains. It has also been wet this week so they mountains have been wreathed in low clouds which just makes them look like something out of a story book.

 

Tomorrow real life will slap us in the face in the form of snow here in the valley. We almost always get our first snow in October I just didn't expect it this early. The bright side is that with rare exception, winters are generally mild enough here that it warms up either the same day or day after it snows and it all melts away. Even in January and February. I'm such a spoiled brat. :P

We've got mountain snow! Won't be terribly long before the resorts open I imagine. Not that I'd ever go, not in a million years. But I'm happy to sit home and drink cocoa while you go. :D

Do we have a "mooning" smiley?!?   :P

 

Mountains are white up here and it snowed for about half an hour today, but nothing stuck yet.  I can't complain. We usually have had a snow and a killing frost before October starts. To still have living dahlias and tomatoes outside in October is pretty unusual for my city.

NEVAH!

 

I've had a few cups of cocoa already this fall. My husband found Baily's red velvet coffee creamer at the store and I've been putting that in my cocoa which is amazing. My husband thinks I'm kinda wacky because I love my cocoa made from cocoa powder, not the kind from a box. It doesn't have enough sugar for him. I'll think of you with every cup of cocoa this winter. :wub: 

 

And you can keep your 82... thanks.
