The view from my window certainly looks cold. All the trees are bare. The sky is that painfully bright blue of cold air. The angle of the sun is such that long shadows stay the entire day. The lake dark blue and covered with geese. But the windows are open. Its balmy out~ well for the great, white, north in November it's balmy. LOL Just another point that looks can be deceiving and when taking notes for your scene setting-the weather isn't always "average."
