You could always use them as sand dune sticks.

Nothing like overnight flurries and talk of accumulating snow to completely **** up your day, week, month, year, etc.

My wind sticks are also fully deployed. You probably don't want to be anywhere near those.

We have nothing here.. so strange. It was 48 at the park yesterday and that was at 4pm with the sun dropping down. Weird.

We're getting Alberta (well, technically Saskatchewan for these ones) clippers right now. I used to like Canada.

I never am. The only aspect of climate change I liked was the potential for milder winters up here. ****ing La Nina. Meh.

Really windy today and loads of twigs and leaves all over, and a piece of palm tree came down. Mustn't complain though, a lot of people further north have no home to go back to.

It's been a bit cooler the past couple of days - high 40's, but by Sunday night/early Monday it is supposed to be down around 20°F, so winter is coming! Luckily our new heating system is going in as I write!

So there has been frost on my car a couple of dozen times since late October, but the temperature has rarely dipped below freezing and it is usually back above freezing before 7am when I leave to take little Miss P to school.

Do you have any longer ones, in case the snow gets any deeper?
