Sortez les moufles

It's getting colder by the day, with near freezing temperatures at night (4° C last night, freezing point being 0°)... Even the scouts are back in tights (is it 'stockings' for you over the Big Pond?)
-----------------------------
Prévisions météo : de plus en plus frais. Et carrément froid la nuit ! Même les scouts ont ressorti les collants !

Not only is she wearing tights, she's got heavy socks on too. It must be cold. Makes you wonder why bother wearing shorts. Time to bring out the long pants, for sure.

Oh, that is cold! Tights is okay, or leggings:) Keep warm. A bientot.

We're flirting in the 7-10C range, but not 0, yet. Soon. We typically get around a night or two in October that chilly, definitely in November. I see runners in these funky, stretchy pants thingys, but no tights.

Jacob said...

I'm not sure what to call them. In fact, I try not to think about them.

We usually don't need them in Florida anyway. Our nights have cooled off nicely - down to the mid-50s (F). And they days are nice and warm - mid-80s. Bright sunshine. I like it.

And, if you'd come here instead of the PNW, you'd know what I'm talking about! :-)

I will leave it to the women to figure out what to call the clothes. In New England, the nights are approaching freezing, but the days are wonderful (around 65 degrees F today with blue skies).

Randy said...

Nice capture. It's gotten pretty cold here too. Time to break out the winter wear.

Lynette said...

We're getting cooler in the mornings here in Portland, which I really like. I also like "The Lion King;" I see the poster there in the distance. Nice post all the way round.

Olivier said...

bien vu, mais il fait pas si froid, et puis grace aux manifestations, on peut marcher pour se rechauffer

Kaori said...

Brrr, that looks cold! It's funny because a couple of years ago it was "tights" but now we call them "stockings," but nothing is different...no one can understand fashion :-D

LD said...

Monterey has one essential temperature: fog. But I can experience the seasons vicariously through great photos like this.

Bergson said...

tous à vélo pour les manifestation !!

les vraies scouts mettent des collants ?

viens te réchauffer chez moi avec l'omelette aux cèpes

Small City Scenes said...

Yes it's getting chilly here at nights too and the days are just perfect high 60s. PERFECT!!
Tights would be what we call them here too.

Super shot so crisp and clear. Like a poster. MB

Bon, donc pour ne pas t'enerver, je ne te dirai pas que le matin quand je vais marcher vers 7h30, je mets juste une petite echarpe sur mon t-shirt, histoire de ne pas prendre mal à la gorge. Je ne te dirai pas non plus qu' après 15 mn de marche, j'enlève l'echarpe et je remets les lunettes de soleil.Ni que le midi, on mange un sandwich sur la plage. Non, non, je ne le dirai pas!

I always like weather-related pictures: they are, sometimes, so peculiar to the place.

Diane said...

I dont mind the cold as long as the sun still shines. She looks so very French. xxx

akarui said...

Des temperatures bien fraiches... Ici je suis encore en manches courtes mais sans doute plus pour tres longtemps.
Bonne fin de semaine.

B SQUARED said...

The temps are about the same here. Time to head south soon!

brattcat said...

Yup, we call them 'tights', too. Cold here in Vermont, also. We brought in our green tomatoes before the frost bit into them and I fried some of them up last night. Yummm.

EG Wow said...

I like to see the young dress sensibly! :) We've had frost here.

Buck said...

The night time temperature is close to 0C but the flowers are still blooming so no frost yet!

That photo is a nice way to show the progression of the seasons.

Cezar and Léia said...

Yesterday I was freezing waiting for the bus after school!Hmmm I think I need to forget the jeans and tennis, it's time to prepare my boots! :)

Stockings are those pantyhose things that only come up to your thighs. These would definitely qualify as tights to Americans.

Our weather has been cooler, but not as cool as yours. It's perfect for golfing!

It would be rather difficult to ride a bicycle through traffic with all that stuff she is carrying.

Paulie said...

Doesn't matter much about the name. They have been called both here. At least she is warmed by them.

Francisca said...

I must be in the warmest spot of the lot here today. A wonderful 32C during the day and a comfortable 28C at night. No tights, stocking, socks or leggings needed. Ever.

Tammie Lee said...

we are getting freezing temps as well and lovely days. I like the light in this photo. Tights are often the thick warm ones, stockings more the shear lady like ones, though I think we use both words both ways.

Loree said...

Oh my. So cold already? We had three very humid and warm days but this evening the north west wind is blowing and that always means cooler temperatures.

You can be a frog id you want to be---I never got the French connection--but you don't have to be. MB
