Winter is Coming Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Winter is Coming Giveaway Hop,  hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

Winter is coming. Here in Atlanta, that may only be theoretical (it’s 60 here today) but it is coming. It may have already come where you are. In fact, it may have already come with a vengeance where you are!

As I’ve mentioned before, we have moved around a lot. We also moved over the summer. Last winter, the entire second floor of the house was freezing all winter. We’re still finding the hot spots and cold spots in this house, but we’ve already discovered we’re a location for one of Murphy’s Laws. The coldest room in the house is the master bathroom. It has two outside walls and it’s bloody freezing. Unfortunately that is one room where one is guaranteed to be spending at least some time partially unclothed. Talk about freezing your buns off!

The warmest room in the house is the downstairs  half bath, which, as you might imagine, only solves part of the problem with the above.

As both of us have a tendency to use the “throne room” as an otherwise cozy place to read, this is a bit of a problem – but I’m sure we’re motivated to figure it out.

But speaking of reading, winter is a terrific time to curl up with a good book, a cup of your hot beverage of choice, and a cuddly cat, dog, or other warm furry creature. To facilitate your resources for doing just that this winter, I am giving away the winner’s choice of either a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a book (or books if you can manage it) up to $10 in value from the Book Depository. Just answer the question in the rafflecopter for your chance at the prize!

  1. Winter has shown up, gone, and now we are just waiting for it to show up again. It can’t make up it’s mind yet whether to stay or go again. It’s very frustrating.

  2. Winter arrived early for us on the north part of the east coast. It snowed in November!

  3. It’s arrived. Only a mild snowstorm so far, but the temps (and wind chill) have been bitter. Brrr.

  4. It comes and goes here in the Dallas area. It was in the 80’s this weekend and today we’re in the 40’s. Probably 70’s or 80’s again in a couple days.

  11. “Has winter already come where you are, or are you still waiting for it to arrive?” We have had snow, so, yes, winter is here.

  20. Weather wise, winter is here. We have already had measurable snow and frigid temperatures.

  21. I live in SK canada so winters been here and its staying… we already had days where the temps were so cold your skin freezes in min to the exposure. We are used to -30C-40 during winter months. We’ve also had freezing rain so bad in the province that in the city of Regina they were using ice skates. (also some deaths due to the damned weather and vehicles) The hoar frost had been so bad that we had power outages all over the province.

  22. NC had snow this weekend….even some today – but rain will be next and our winter wonderland will turn to cold instead

  25. It has been cold and we have had 1 snow but it has warmed back up some so its in the process.

  26. Winter is here but hopefully it will get warm enough in the next few days to melt all the snow.

  27. Winter came fast and furious, then it stopped being frigid cold. Thanks.

  28. Winter came if only briefly this year. It snowed just once and now it almost feels like spring.

  29. Winter was here, then it left and we had a little more summer & quite a bit of fall weather. Typical of Kansas – weather changes all the time!

  30. We have had a few cold fronts in the past month but the weather has not dipped below 45 degrees. I live in the Sunshine state and we never get snow in my area. Sometimes it feels like summer on Christmas day.

  31. We have had snow already but its a tame winter compared to what we usaully get but im not complaining.

  32. Winters are generally mild here, so I guess you could say it has arrived–especially since we have had some short lived snow!
