You Know Winter Is Getting Close When ... The dog's pee steams.
We had our first frost this morning. It's starting to feel like winter is approaching. They're predicting a cold dry winter this year and I hope they are wrong about the dry part. I'm really looking forward to the first snow. I want to see how Homer reacts to the falling white stuff. The closest he's come to snow is a brief California hail storm.
This morning he went out to do his business and walked around sniffing the frosty grass. I took a picture ... of the grass, not the business.
