Old Man Winter

Has arrived in the Bay Area. It's C.O.L.D.
Quite a difference from S. California. Although it was pretty moderate while we were there, in the high 60s. But I just heard that the cold is heading their way, too.

Sunday, Phin and I went to the Celebration of Craftswomen - "San Francisco’s largest holiday fine crafts retail fair, and the largest event celebrating the craft of women in the nation." I was able to find a few Christmas gifts. I usually have trouble finding things there because I'm never sure if the recipient will appreciate the craftwomanship that went into it.

When we left, it was quite cold and raining steadily.
There was a dedicated athelete swimming without a wetsuit in this Oh So Very Very Cold Water. Props to him! I suppose the rain didn't bother him since he was already in the water.
We walked up to Ghirardelli Square for lunch and of course...sundaes.
Sundaes in that weather?? Um. Well, yea. How can you turn that down? Although, as Phin and I were saying, post consumption, we really need to share one instead of indulging in our own.

Tomorrow's temperatures are suppose to be record lows for the area.

I'm not gonna complain because my cousin is dealing with snow right now. Before the snow, she had 4 weeks straight of rain.

The heater's on, the blankets are out and I just bought a brand new winter coat. I think I'm prepared.
Although I think I hear an evil snicker coming from Old Man Winter...

Brrrrrrrr! Winter is indeed here. We should see snow by Friday. Good news I get to wear my new mittens. Bad news is heating bills.

So jealous that you got to go to the craft fair AND eat at Ghiardelli's. No fair.

Yep, dire predictions for the weather here after today's sunshine. I feel too bad to go out so it's wasted on me.

Those sundaes look heavenly! How delicious they must have been!

It's cooled off quite a bit here since you left. Brrrrrrrrr...at night especially. It was pretty cold and windy last night. It finally feels like Fall, I suppose.

I must say that I LOVE that kind of weather, Mad, even the dreariness of it. It makes me feel so cozy on the inside. I know I'm some kind of crazy nut but, that's me! And I don't know of any time of the year when ice cream ISN'T good! I would share a sundae with you in a second!
