Here comes winter!

When I arose from the arms of Morpheus this morning, the temperature was 14 degrees outside. 14 DEGREES Fahrenheit! Wait a minute. This is Arizona where people come to spend their balmy winter days. The home of the snowbirds from the normally colder, snowier northlands. Not only that. The weather forecast is saying rain and snow are on the way. The old Catalyst is feeling a bit chilly this morning.

Other than staying in the house with the furnace blasting warmth throughout what can one do? Ah, there's the Internets with their wealth of photographs of places warmer, balmier, sunnier than here.

I'm feeling better already. I'll have another Margarita, please.

It is warmer here than in your neck of the woods. Hard to believe.

It's hard for me to believe, too!

Good thing your cat has that bandana, what with the changing seasons and all. Gotta keep your pussy warm in the winter time.

My wife called me from Texas on Friday to tell me it was snowing. Luckily, I was on my way to England where it just rains all the time.

I guess we can all just sit back and hope for global warming.

Ah, going over for the Harrod's Christmas sales, I gather.

Oh that is soooo wrong. Rain, snow and lots of cold up here this weekend!
