On the Mild Side


If You Can't Stand the Heat..

There is no snow in the immediate forecast for this area, but the weather reports has the day time temps in the 30s for Tuesday and Wednesday. That is just about cold enough for snow fall. Parts of New York, western Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine have already had their first snowfalls. Some mid western states have also seen the white stuff.

Best thing I've seen on the net for awhile.

I checked it out - and I did.

LOL! There as a disclaimer - I am a PUNdit of puns.

I don't remember hearing that weather saying anywhere else, but it stands to reason it could be used just about anywhere.

Glad to evoke a chuckle out of you and Scamp.

That "Cheeses of Nazareth" cartoon - I've been sitting on it for a week waiting for a chance to use it.
