Thanks DG, I think you are right stopping at summer makes the most sense to me! On the other hand, Fall is probably my favorite season, warm sunny days, sometimes the smell of burning leaves (childhood memories), cool (not cold) nights, crystal clear skies....it's what follows that I don't like so much!

Yesterday we went to over 40 degrees, did some melting, today's high temperature was achieved at midnight, it's been falling ever since. I got up to 28 degrees this morning and by the time i left for work it was down to 22. Tonight we can expect sub-zero temps again. We may go over freezing again next week though! A big shout out to all our friends south of Maine where they are getting pounded with another snow/sleet/ice/rain event today.... Boston is within less than 3" of a new snow record since they have been keeping records, back to the 1800's. Bangor Maine has set a new record I believe for snow fall this year and they already set a record for the coldest month ever.

I seldom participate in this forum, but I certainly (and sadly) have the one basic qualification to do so! :-) I'm wondering if anyone here has dabbled in the murky world of Internet dating, and what mileage (no pun intended) they got out of it...

You all know what day it is right? HUMP DAY! Mulled wine...been a while since I had that, very popular back in the 70's and 80's as I recall.

Seed catalogs.....spring.....summer.....harvest.......... (I'll stop there, don't want to mention the "W" word!)

teejay, I think you're right about the weather. I know you're right about the seed catalogs as most everyone who gardens here is looking through them. I've been looking at Burpees and Seed Savers catalogs. Just looking at them makes me think of summer. :)

You know DG, I think we have had enough of the snow and cold weather for the year....time to cut us some slack don't you think? this time of year and a young man's fancy (or even an old man's) turns to spring and gardens and veggies, was looking through my Johnny's Selected Seeds catalog the other day thinking about what to plant this year....

Well happy Tuesday everyone....

P.S. Ann, Banana Cream Pie......been many years since I had any of that.

teejay, It was about 11 degrees for an average temp here in February, much colder than January. Last winter (3 month Dec-Feb) was much colder with a 9 degree average temp. We're about 16 inches below normal in snowfall. Expecting some starting tomorrow.

Kahlua.....interesting. Here in Maine, the best selling "liquor" by a HUGE amount is Allen's Coffee Brandy, I don't know if it is available anywhere else except here in the northeast.... Probably just as well! LOL Much like Kahlua, it is mixed with milk or cream for an ....interesting beverage. I will say that Kahlua is much less harsh than Allen's, but it is also about 3 or 4 times as much money I think!

Well, it is official, February has set a record for the COLDEST average temperature EVER in Bangor Maine. 6.9 degrees, shatters the old record which I think was a January in the 60's or 70's that was like 8.2 degrees.... Portland Maine also broke it's record for February but missed, just barely, the monthly record for all months.

I hope you all have a fabulous Monday and rest of the week too!

annette, Tortilla chips are good, so is salsa. :)

teejay, The melting has been sporadic. While it's been cold this winter, at least we haven't had much white stuff to shovel. Don't know what the average is for this month but have to believe it is also below average. One day sort of nice and one day colder here...seems that is how the winter has been going. :(

Wow Ann, you're early today...or is that late into the night? DG - Lucky you, melting....we have seen almost none of that for weeks, though, admittedly, last Saturday, the 21st it broke 32 degrees outside. Today started snowy, there was actually a 40 vehicle (includes one school bus and one tractor trailer truck supposedly) pile up on I-95 in Etna Maine, north of where I live, south of Bangor Maine. Nasty. The sun is out now though and there is a promise of getting into the 20's several times in the next 7 days, though breaking the freezing mark is doubtful. The sun will help melt some off of roofs and pavement though. We will end up with a record low average temperature for February, probably not over 10 degrees for the entire month. BBBBRRRRRR.

Tortilla Chips....salsa, a little guacamole, melted cheese, yummmmm. Shouldn't it also be National Margarita Day too?? Banana bread is also excellent, especially warm out of the oven.

Hey Road, there is nothing quite like warm sticky buns..........I think the ladies agree with that.

Well enjoy your HUMP day all!

DG JUNIOR MINTS Of course!!!! They were great little nuggets of deliciousness....

Sticky buns ....hmmmmm Ann, you have my mind spinning.....and I like that spin!

Margaritas, yes I'll have some of those please!

Lovely weekend, temps got over freezing for the first time in weeks. Looking at a new monthly record average low in Bangor Maine for sure and probably in Portland Maine too! Bnagor's average is likely to be something like 8 degrees average for the ENTIRE MONTH! BRRRRRRRRRR.................. Anyway, we are back into the deep freeze and wicked winds. But the good news is, no real snow in the forecast this week!!!! My driveway is about 1/3 snow covered to about 7 feet high.....I'll try to post a picture sometime. It's ridiculous. Have a great day everyone!

DG, of course I will keep it over here... At least we aren't dealing with measles, or at least no one I know is...

Chocolate Mint Day....peppermint patties, York, what were the ones we got at the movies, "something: mints, they were little and coated with dark chocolate, yummmmmmy. I think mints have always been my favorite, I love peppermint stick ice cream in the summer, especially with Sanders Dark Fudge sauce on it. Of course can't get Sanders here in Maine, sadly. Their Milk Chocolate isn't bad either, I actually have some of that from my last trip to Michigan, unopened I might add.

Ann, I thought they would be soggy...(sorry, coffee is wet unless you are talking beans and then it would be lumpy!) LOL

Listen all of you, have a GREAT weekend. We are expecting more snow here in the Northeast, I am thankful though that I didn't book a trip to Florida in hopes of sitting in the sunshine, they are in the 30's and 40's.... brrrrrrrrrrrr.

Coffee, Ann, you wear some of the strangest things....

So, yesterday was drink wine day, I know it must have been because a lot of my friends were drinking wine after our church choir rehearsal last night!

Hope you are all well, we here in Maine are dealing with poor weather and a lot of folks have a NASTY cold, upper respiratory infection thing that is pure evil. I've been fighting it myself for a couple weeks and co-workers have had it and a doc friend is even considering trying antibiotics because he thinks it has flared into a sinus infection...One guy I know told me he's been sick for 5 weeks now. YUCK!

Stay warm and well all!

Alright, back from Fat Tuesday and winding down my non work related fun.

Dirt, If you do the day parades and stay uptown, it is safe and kid friendly. I went today to the meat and potatoes factory, Bourbon, with adult family.

Ann, I always feel like a nut. I luv me some Cali almonds. We have good local honey here in the bayou. It does wonders for allergies and sinuses.

Ooh, almonds.

Interesting fact that California produces something like 80% of the worlds almonds and about 70% of that is shipped out of the country. It takes about 2 and 1/2 million colonies (hives) of bees to pollinate the almond trees and they are trucked in from all over the country.
