This has been the longest November ever.
Usually even if the rest of the winter is warmish, January is always cold. We haven't even had snow once this winter! It's been in the 40s, 50s.. It's like living in the south again. Though at least people don't walk around in gigantic fluffy coats when it's 58 degrees outside like they do in the south. And at least when it threatens to get below 40 the grocery stores don't sell out of bread and milk.
The first time I went to a grocery store in North Carolina in the winter, after a forecast of flurries, I was stunned.. I didn't make the connection between the empty sheleves and the weather at first. How could a grocery store be so slack as to sell out of milk?!
