The temperatures have certainly taken a nosedive in my neck of the woods. After a prolonged Indian summer, my hometown has now begun to feel more like Moscow than Madrid. It is getting incredibly cold; the winds are kicking up briskly (my poor garden gnomes are flopping to the ground whenever a powerful gust blows by); the air seems to hold a possibility of snow to come. Yes, it is beginning to look (and feel) a lot like that ho-ho-holiday time of year.
