Colder, still wet, though.

It rained a goodly portion of the night. The sound of the water dripping in the metal downspout just outside the bedroom window woke me up at 4 AM and kept me awake. The cats, sensing my tossing and turning started yowling at 4:40 AM so I gave up and got up. They were happy. Me? Not so much.

After feeding the beasts, I checked the temperature and saw it was just 42 degrees outside on the deck. That meant it was probably around 37 degrees. Stepping out on the deck, it sure felt like it was in the 30s.

Later, as I went of the papers at 8:30 AM the Tundra's thermometer read 39 degrees. And it was still raining and kept on raining through noon. It did slow after that, however.

Well, at least it wasn't West Virginia cold. They got 4 inches of snow down in WVA. Of course, that was above 3500 feet and the Aerie is at a mere 2100 feet.

There was some snow down in the southwest part of Pennsylvania. Even State College--home of AccuWEather--got some large flakes.

Of course I built a fire.

Yep. Winter's here. It's snowing in the mountains above town right now; I can see it out my bedroom window.

Still raining here in town, but 75% of the leaves are down, and that first snow isn't too far away.

I'm a little jealous of your fireplace. :)
