Am I A Winter Person? 366/158.
Yesterday I would have said generally, yes.
Until this…the great (and latest) East Coast Low. This was earlier on Sunday 5 June. We live between Wyong and Norah Head. Top of photo.
I am writing this and scheduling the post ‘just in case we lose power’ so…here is a link to what has been happening in the local area called The Central Coast of NSW. The east coast low went from Queensland, down through northern NSW, here then onto Sydney and inner parts of the metropolitan area, south coast and further. It remains a menacing and awful event. Let’s hope by the time this is published tomorrow it’s gone!
I have horrid memories of the last #eastcoastlow and that wasn’t even in Winter! Remember this?
So, I guess I am more of a winter person as I am more physically comfortable being cool. I love a temperate time of year, like most people, and so I dislike the extremes of summer. I could live in a colder clime – I think – but my hub endured too many Armidale winters to want to do that again.
We will stick to the more temperate climes in our older age and keep comfy with a jacket or jumper and the heater set at about 23 degrees when it gets too cold even here.
I like the comfort foods of winter, but I have to cook them still. I also like the warm cosy nights in bed but then again, the nights are pretty long aren’t they? I enjoy being at home on a winter’s day with sunshine pouring in through the windows but keeping wind and rain at bay.
What about you?
Are you a winter person?
Joining Kirsty, whose idea this was…and wondering what she will have to say over here at My Home Truths.
UPDATE: We did not lose power. Phew. So many people I know living in areas majorly affected by this east coast low system and I feel for them. Many have had house damage, cannot get to work or school and some schools and businesses are closed. Take care, everyone. Hope all is well wherever you are.
