It is now also predicted to be somewhat colder than had been forecast earlier. The first low in the thirties of the season might be Saturday night, and the first high below fifty might be Sunday. It's feeling quite wintry already tonight, and it's only fifty degrees outside, heading down to forty-six. I guess I can give up the dream of a moderate energy bill this month. There is no real warmth scheduled for the next ten days. Only an unexpected Indian Summer could bail out my sorry ass (and checking account.)
It looks like I'll be shopping tomorrow, even if the rain is still coming down. On the bright side, there are a few things on sale this week that will be nice on the cold nights upcoming, including my favorite microwaveable frozen tamales. And the bargains are likely to get better as Thanksgiving approaches. Pie soon! Not this week, but soon.
