OMG! I MISSED THE FIRST DAY OF WINTER!

I don’t know why I thought today was the first day of winter. I guess it was because my calendar in the kitchen said it was. I should have known better since none of the weather wizards on TV were spewing all the winter weather trivia they had gleaned from their Old Farmer’s Almanac. I had a OFA, but I used it as a coaster for a potted plant last spring. Pot leaked and soaked almanac. So I threw it away! Then the plant died. Guess it had formed some kind of attachment for that soggy almanac.

So, I began preparing to welcome the winter solstice by writing my ode to the changing of the seasons.

FALL HAS FALLEN … AND WINTER RULES

SO NOW I CAN PUT AWAY THE GARDEN TOOLS!

I should have known something was amiss when all the trees went bald last week, and the littering leaves staged an OCCUPY the Streets, Lawns, and Walks protest all around town.

It was a very colorful demonstration to say the least!

Then it hit me like a snowball direct from hell!

WINTER DOESN’T START UNTIL RIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS!!

AND I HAVEN’T EVEN STARTED DOING MY CHRISTMAS SHOPPING!!!

So in spite of the fact that yesterday’s temp dipped to 22F it is still FALL … glorious FALL! It was like Ebenezer Scrooge waking up on Christmas day and finding out the temp is going to skyrocket to the mid-50s today. So don’t believe everything you read on the internet … until you get to the last line.
