It's a chilly 72 in the Hostess City today. I am at home in my flannel pajamas. Since we are a mere 10 miles from the ocean it never dips below 32.

Wonderful Technicolour Autumn day in London today and I made the most off it, by first tumbling off my wagon after coffee with x , my purveyor off fine complimentary  herbal remedies. The dog and I tottered to the hole in the wall and headed for Battersea Park. The low bright sun was like what some photographers call the 'Golden Hour" the last hour of full sun at the end off the day.

Grimy orange shop canopy sizzled, the yellow road markings looked brand new , with rain yesterday the roads and buildings had less dust so brick colours where more defined. The Park with early autumn shone, the Glass high rises through the trees sometimes flashed  the sun and the grass was emerald.

The dog raced through undergrowth trying to scare up creatures , returning when called to make sight contact then rushing off again. In the middle off Battersea Bridge the wind had nothing blocking it so you got to feel the weather also , by the time I got to The Lister Hospital I was knackered and was wavy on my feet so bus home.

Beautiful woman in deep Yellow wool wrap coat and Jet Black the rest walked past trailing a average weeks wage off perfume , delicious .

Back at 3 have slept till 8 pm.

Still running the AC, but I've noticed it's turning on a lot less each day.

The highest electric bill we've had this summer was $89.00. Not to shabby.  Once the AC is shut down the bill will drop to about 55.00 a month, for the rest of the winter.

Last winter, we only turned on the heat a few times, we'll see what this winter brings.

Currently it is 73 degrees. We had some rain early this morning,( around 4:00AM) but the temps are going to drop by Thursday night//Friday morning.

I'm ready for the cooler weather !   :P

I'm *SO* ready for snow -- a huge blizzard (or two!) because we've not had hardly any for the past two winters. I didn't even wear my designer snow boots a single time last year. :P

I have space heaters going and have for the last couple days.  The safe kind, of course, that shut off if they are tipped over.  It's only 35F here now, and was snowing on my way home from work..

All those years in Brooklyn and all those years in ratty student apartments in other old cities, never had the option of turning on or off the heat.  Funny Im in the same set up in Switzerland.  Steam radiators.  One time I had a stingy landlord when I was living in the brownstone she owned and lived in too.  Radiators getting hot finally in late November. Used to bake a lot.  The apartment I had before that was classic slum heating - or at least thats the urban legend in NY.  Meaning it was FULL BLAST hot house heat all winter. With the windows open in snow storms heat. It was a colossal waste of energy but it was kinda sensual and also anyone could smoke and the apartment wouldn't stink up.  The legend I learned was this kept the poor from rioting in our crappy lodgings..  I dunno if thats true....
I have many comforters and also use a down mattress pad.

We have freeze warnings tonight and tomorrow night.  And, our furnace needs replaced.  It wouldn't come on.  We were hoping it was the same problem we've had a couple times, where the igniter or sensor probe needed cleaning.  Well, the fire chamber or whatever it is has rusted through.  It would cost about $1,500 to fix.

It is 25 years old and we knew we would have to replace it soon.  They were surprised it lasted as long as it did.  I thought the furnace and a/c must be top of line, to last so long.  However, the furnace guy said they are builders grade.  He recommends replacing the a/c in spring, saying they work better when they are the same brand and technology. 

So, $3,000 for the furnace and about $2,700 for the a/c, including labor.  Both carry a 10 year warranty.  If it can't be fixed, then they replace it.  They sell Westinghouse.  We need to replace the water heater at some point.  It is fine during the summer, but you run out of hot water in the winter.  We're hoping we will see energy savings.  We get reports from our gas and electric company.  It always says we use way more energy than similar homes in our area.  We had planned on replacing all the windows this fall.  I'm glad we didn't now.  Those will have to wait.

I agree, pre-Halloween snow is not desirable.  The snow is not really sticking, though I did have to scrape off my car yesterday morning before going to work.  It's supposed to get into the 50's next week, we'll see.  I hope it's a decent weather night on Halloween, because I have all this candy to get rid of.

Quite often what happens on the East coast we in the UK get a diluted version off 3 to 5 days later, and this thread is more fun than my Yahoo weather , though I can foresee me getting more interested.

Mr Wump and Betty many thanks , I was without my Camera and started writing the piece in my head on the bus coming home as I was wanted to share the day. I write usually  as part off getting pictures on walls .

Sadly 4 dead from the Storm that passed through Southern England , damage being added up , loads off dead wood will off been stripped from trees and this has a beneficial effect on woodlands.

 Last one as big as this was in 1987, I had no idea it was occurring as I spent until 7.a.m in a basement in Clarkenwell, in a Club whose name refuses to surface. As my partner was performing in Brighton that night we got to Victoria and crashed out on the coach to Brighton.We woke up , the coach entering Brighton , to a scene off devastation . Trees down , snapped trunks , roads blocked and 2 very confused Gay blokes wandering WTF.

I was actually living in Winchester, Hampshire during the '87 storm and it was really scary. Back then there were basically no warnings that the storm was coming, or at least not until a few hours before it hit -- when everyone was asleep.

The emergency clear up is now well underway this am. The deaths are sad . every tree surgeon is working until they drop . yesterday making trees say from lived in buildings. It will be a bonus for wood worker's and power stations. Insurance agents will have a long day, Marine particularly.

Overall the weather forecasters , the emergency services ,  transport people are receiving praise and it looks like we did learn from the 87 blow

In fact its now a television piece off fame . 24 hour,s before the event Mr Michael Fish a well known weather presenter spoke to camera an stated---------   We are receiving inquiries at the Meteorological Center that a Hurricane is on its way. I am hear to say this not going to happen...........poor love , still appears when we have a hint off trouble, just hope he gets repeat Fees.

Did you attend the Choral stuff Miss P ?

I was born in Berkshire 7 miles from the Hampshire boarder . I love walking the Kennet and Avon Canal and these two counties have some off the best domestic architecture off the last 700 years, only trouble now is you need mega money now for housing . But having a picnic by a country river in these counties can be bliss.


Must go its Greyson Perry,s Reith lectures , have you seen them Miss P .The royal academe are spluttering with green envy.

I'm not sure what you mean by "Choral stuff" but whatever, I was in Winchester attending this place (special credit for Brian Eno being an alumnus). For an American, Winchester is very picture perfect for sure and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. Plus it was a convenient hour's train ride to London. Or I'd go down to Portsmouth and take the ferry to France.

Oh, and I was a "lodger" in a council flat so I got the whole English working class experience, plus my walk to school each day took me right by Winchester cathedral which is gorgeous.

Our first official NOAA freeze warning is for tonight. We are forecast to dip down to 31F and I've not even had to turn on my heater a single time yet this season, nor have I broken out my huge down comforter.

Here where I am in SC we have already had one occurrence (back in October) that briefly reached 32 but that was just before sunrise and was brief.  This past week our A.C. was going and this morning I noticed the heat kicked on around 4:30.  Tis the season and honestly, I am ready for a few cooler days.

I want to go get some steamed oysters and that is definitely a cold weather activity.

Our first official NOAA freeze warning is for tonight. We are forecast to dip down to 31F and I've not even had to turn on my heater a single time yet this season, nor have I broken out my huge down comforter.

We had our first freeze early last week.  Killed most of my remaining flowers.  Here is something I've heard for the first time this year-- the weather folks are saying there will be no more freeze warnings, because the growing season is considered over after the first freeze.  Never heard that before.  Guess it makes sense.

Many from New York to Key West got a partial solar eclipse this morning.  A nice fall treat.  A total eclipse is will be at its best over Kentucky in 2017.

I guess the growing season is over.  But there is a fall to winter crop in Switzerland, though not sure exactly what...
Also there is  fall to early winter flower season.  Mums bloom through the freezes, and heathers too.  Giant cyclamens also.
Swiss towns seem to have a lot of money and have 3 seasons of flowers in public gardens. And 4 seasons of dressing the flower beds..  It always seems so extravagant to me but I love it.  Now they are putting in the spectacular mums in about half the beds. The others they plant with the things that over winter - the spring bulbs, but already all the pansies and stuff.  The mums will come out in mid December.  All the winter beds will be dressed with pine branches over the pansies and wallflowers, and other flowers I don't know the names of.

There are geraniums in some protected southern windows that survive the whole winter, snow and all..

Saw this tonight.  He said this is just one model, but said not the only one showing snow for next Thursday, the 14th.  Although, he said most think this is way out of line, but said some place from Ohio to Pennsylvania will probably see some accumulating snow.  We shall see.  The earliest accumulation I remember here happened just two years ago on thanksgiving.  We got about 2 inches.  It wasn't forecasted and we didn't even know it had snowed, until we left to go home from dinner.

That's a frightening map! Next Thursday is a long way away. A light dusting might be nice.

Tonight, Mr. Weatherman gave a look at both the GFS and Euro models.  Haven't the Euro models been more accurate in the last few years? 

So, the GFS model has drastically changed from last night.  We will see whether either are correct and which is more accurate.

check out my radar this morning

FIRST SNOW FLURRIES, 36F @ 9:31am I think it went down to 28F a few hours ago.

( also in East Haddam! )

Two more nights of chilly temps and then a slight return to normal temperatures for mid-November, but then cold nights return again this time next week. Two weeks away for Thanksgiving definitely looks to be chilly.

The snow was coming down at a pretty good rate earlier here but nothing stuck. We still have leaves to rake. The two huge magnolia trees held onto there leaves much longer that usual.
Kenny better get the snow blower tuned up. Mechanical thingies are above my pay grade.

Well this sucks; I wasn't able to get all the damned leaves raked and now we have a coating of snow.  The grass barely survived last year as I wasn't able to rake due to my leg injury.

Oh well, will soon be able to build snow forts at the new place and have a bonfire party.
