It's starting to get pretty dark between 4:30 and 5 p.m. now. And as of yesterday, it's chilly around here. Better than last year--that was months of, brrrrr. I don't think this winter will be as freezing and snowy. I'm pretty wussy about winter still. I'm from Northern California so give me a break.
Having lived in San Francisco for 20 years, I can handle damp, cold weather with hardly any complaining. Snow last year was icing on the cake. But I must wear a hat. And a heavy jacket. None of that t-shirt in 38-degree weather stuff for me. To those who can go out and pick up the newspaper and get the mail in such attire, I salute you.
