Today we welcome the first day of the last month of this decade! Traveling back from our Thanksgiving holiday road trip to Spokane Washington, we certainly got our fill of chilly weather!
Chill December brings the sleet, blazing fire and Christmas treat.Sara Coleridge
The icy twigs you see in the above image demonstrates the chill of a foggy, icy morning. Frozen fog…”frog”?
I am used to “cold” Northern California weather this time of year with average daytime temperatures holding at 50 degrees. Although it does not snow in Sacramento, the night-time temps easily drop to freezing for most of the month. I know many of you scoff at such warm winter temps, and you should!
Fewer than 90 miles away in the Sierra Nevada mountains, the ski season got off to a slow start. With an unusually warm fall and little rain, the slopes are just now singing their siren song after a winter storm hit the west.
Technically, it is still Autumn until the Winter Solstice on December 21, but this poor leaf experienced the December chill a little early.
