The Seasons Are Changing

Well, it seems that our Madison-style ‘fall’ is in full effect!  It’s 29F here today, that’s -1.7C, yikes!  Poor Pooja is still braving the cold this morning to go to her bus stop!

Just yesterday we had our first snow.  Here are a couple of shots I took of the blizzard flying by, the wind was wild!  You’ll probably have to open them up in full-size to see the snow going.

As it also happens, today is Diwali, so Happy Diwali everyone!!  We have lights put up and I love them, and since you’re all so far away I’d better share so that you can see!

Here is a shot from the inside.  I put them under the blinds so that they’re visible from the outside, but it still lights up really well inside!  The wall/ceiling behind the butterfly kite lights up blue as well, very pretty.

There’s still some space un-lit I suppose, but right now it makes me happy enough that we probably won’t buy an extra set of lights.  I did, however, choose the fancy new led lights with 88% reduced energy use, fun huh?  We’re so green!  I told Pooja that meant we could leave them on 24 hours a day, but she didn’t seem to agree.  Oh well!

Here’s what it looks like from the outside.  I had to use the flash, so it looks like daytime, but I couldn’t see anything without the flash except some bluish smudges!

Here’s another shot from the sidewalk, closer to what the driver’s by will see (still needed the flash).

We’re the coolest spot in the building!  Now why doesn’t everyone else have their Diwali lights up?

Happy Diwali! Wow! Lights and snow! So much for fall! If you’re having snow already… good luck this winter!

Love you both, warmly. 🙂

Glenn and Pooja – It seems as though things are going wonderfully for you both! I love the Diwali decor! Good luck when real winter hits up there – it can be cold and bitter! But just bust out big puffy coats and warm gloves – you’ll get used it quickly, and then you’ll wonder why people in NC complain when it gets in the 40s (much like I did when I first moved here).

Eric and I are doing well, and I’m missing the old Kenan staff group. Good luck with school, Pooja, and please keep in touch.

Dearest pooka and glenn! (yes i know that’s not how you spell it, but that’s how i spell it!)
update more, I need more information sitting her in china. I’m soooo happy you are happy. hope you don’t get too cold (thats just a reason to cuddle though). keep feeding the man healthy meals so he gets big and strong and keep learning about those kids. I wish you the best. Survive winter! I suggest longjohns!
