So I'm thinking my kids were not that far off when a couple weeks ago they pulled out the winter gear and began playing outside. I secretly think they knew something we didn't know - like winter seems to be on its way. Seriously, today is ridiculously cold - marking the first day we turned on our furnace. As we were driving around tonight drinking chai lattes and commenting on this dreadful weather, I glanced down at the car's thermometer and I watched the temperature drop from 39 to 38 to 37. Really. It is way too early for this. Good thing I made a mad dash to the store the other day to pick up some more winter gear.
