This was just about two weeks ago. Peak color autumn leaves and warm sunshine! Only old man winter arrived early this year making the leaves drop quickly and just a few days ago we greeted our first snowfall.
What a difference two weeks can make. And I am still hoping it will warm-up before the official start of winter because of the drop in temperature being so sudden that my body was not prepared.
I know we cannot go back to this…
Because the beautiful red leaves are now on the ground under the snow. So far this cold has had a typical reaction from me. In that, I opted not to go out and put on my warm leopard pajamas. My plan this winter is to keep a reasonable temperature indoors… which means I need to do some internet research on the best thermostat setting for Michigan winters.
I will be visiting California over the Holidays again. Even if it looks like Ann Arbor has ever-increasing amounts of bubble tea to tempt me.
