Aby-a-Day – November 9: Brace yourself…winter is coming.

The weather is getting colder, the sun is setting earlier and earlier, and Christmas ads are on TV. But that’s not how you can tell that it will soon be winter.


Nope, none of those is a true sign of winter.


The true sign of winter is when you go to look for your cat…


…and you call him and he doesn’t come, even with the promise of delicious treats.


So, while you look for him in the bedroom, you figure you might as well sort out the quilt on the bed…it’s got this sort of lump in it.


And that’s when you discover that that lump isn’t just a lump…and that’s how you know that it will soon be winter.
