Finally!! It is cold enough in Northern California for me to wear my boots and sweaters. Oh, how I have missed you! Boot and sweater season here is mainly November through maybe Mid-March. It is a short season. Unlike “shorts” season which tends to be April-October, along with flips-flops or sandals.
For the past five years, the hot flashes have kept me pretty warm. Thankfully, those are down to 1-2 a day (sorry if TMI!). And the community center I work in is old, cold and kind of drafty. But as much as I love the the warm spring and hot summers, I am SO ready for winter. I know that many people are dealing with COLD in most of the US and Canada, and I know that the cold gets old really fast. It doesn’t snow where I live, too close to sea-level, but it’s the best I can get.
So those who live in the northern hemisphere, get those boots and sweaters out and enjoy this time of year!
