Before showing you this picture of the day, I would just like to note it was 61 degrees outside this afternoon - or so told me my Weather Widget when I settled down to my computer after lunch. And from my before-lunch jaunts outside, I would have no reason to doubt it.
This is what my weather widget says now:
I'm not sure how closely you're looking (or if it's just too trippy to you to have that "blog within a blog" effect so you're not focusing on the right thing), but that says 34 degrees. And right next to that, there's a cloud. And what's falling from the cloud? That's right, snowflakes.
And from my brief jaunt out to the mailbox after putting the kids to bed, I can, indeed, attest to the fact that there was some not-so-liquid precipitation stinging my face.
Seriously. Oklahoma? It was 61!
As a result, tonight's before-bed snack is brought to you by Malt-O-Meal, my snuggly cold-weather alternative to your typical bowl of cereal (also something specifically advised against by the midwives two weeks ago thanks to raised glucose levels - I won't tell if you don't).
(Also please note, in the 15 minutes between when I took this picture and when I posted it, the temperature reported on my widget dropped to 32. This is lame.)
Further Update: After my initial post, I peeked outside to see if I could actually see snowflakes swirling in the air (though I knew it would only be in the air as the ground wasn't cold enough to sustain accumulation, right?). This is what I found:
I would be lying if I didn't admit it actually makes my heart a little happy inside.
