    The weather here can be described in one word.............HOT!! Cooling down next weekend, but then back up again. Yesterday evening, at 6:30, we went to Walmart and it was still 95 degrees. That's just too hot for us that time of day.

    26 F. this morning sooo...summer is truly over. Virtually everything of value is out of the garden, so now it is just waiting for snow and winter. Finished my new woodshed yesterday, so NOW I have to fill it. Sigh.

    It’s a beautiful 75 here today but the forecast for the rest of the week is low 80s. I’m so ready to say goodbye to the 80s. :(

    Saturday, October 7th.
    It’s cold or maybe that needs a more descriptive term as in, “derned” cold.
    At the present time, it’s only 14 degrees above freezing and tonight is going to get down to 5 degrees above freezing.
    I let Rusty out of his kennel so he could go outside and he stuck his nose out the door and promptly turned around to his warm place in the kennel. He already has a fur coat and even he said it’s too cold even to go out to do his “chores”.

    Two days ago I was wearing shorts and a tank top, this morning I am weighed down with sweat pants and 2 sweaters and thinking about digging out the winter coat.
    At this point in time, the only saving grace is that I have a hot cup of coffee and if not for that, hell freezing over is not an expression that I would take lightly any longer.

    Here in Florida, it is still nice but suppose to get down into the high 40s Sunday night. In a couple days back up into the 80s for the high.

    In the spring and fall, when the weather is neither too hot or too cold, we usually have several windows open for the house to have fresh air, and the doors open in the daytime. If it is going to start being in the 30’s at night, we will definitely be closing those windows when we go to bed at night .
    In the summer, I just have one cup of coffee in the morning (with my mushroom powder and acacia prebiotic), but now I have my big coffee pot out and the little one put away, so I can have a warm-up on my coffee this morning.

    I was grumbling to @Bobby Cole last night (yes, I DO sometimes grumble) that I would like to live somewhere else because it seems like half of the year it is too muggy and hot, and the other half, it is cold, wet, and dreary. I know we can’t move anywhere else; but I often daydream about living out on the West Coast again, seeing Mt. Rainier and Mt. Saint Helens in the distance, and being able to drive to the ocean and walk barefoot in the sand.

    That was the theme for "Here Comes the Brides". Do you remember? I never found the skies that blue, and the winter skies are totally depressing.

    Closest thing to a mountain for me was Stone Mountain aka largest solid granite rock on earth. And I loved it but like much else it is now crime city.
    I handle the weather here ok although it is hot, humid and most winters are mild.
    We still drive to St. Augustine Beach every several months. I love the ocean but no longer swim in it.
    I hope we have a rare ice storm here this winter, to rid us of all these chiggers and tic's.
    I put a fan in the window and leave one open and it creates a nice draft to cool us. Plus it cleans the air.

    I love the fall colors. My Bucket List was to go to Gloucester and visit The Wrens Nest [ {Perfect Storm movie] during the fall. Not anymore of course not into long trips at our age.

    Yeah, my wife was a fan too. I was too busy at that time in my life to watch TV, so I missed it. That show and the theme song was the impetus that began the big migration to the Seattle area, along with the World's Fair in 1962. The show was on from 1968-1970 and, since it was also about cutting down trees, it would not be allowed on TV now.
