It is another frosty night outside tonight. The front that brought dark skies and intense rain Wednesday also brought a big push of cold air. My car windows were good and frosted up this morning with our low of 28. As of 9:30pm the cycle was repeating, it was 28 and there was frost forming on everything.
The heating season has started. I have been running the wood burner the past few nights. Both nights when I got home from work the house was down to 58. I am not too concerned about the well house or stuff in the work shed that shouldn’t freeze. The buildings will hold enough heat to ward off any damage as long as it is above about 45 in the daytime and not too far into the 20s. I will be addressing a lot of that this weekend.
I was thinking on the way home from work today that it is a good thing that the fall colors are so late this year. Last week the colors were at or near peak for the early colors. Friday a storm came with rain and strong winds and knocked some of it down. Quite a bit of it survived because it was so late in changing. The same thing happened Wednesday with wind, rain, and more leaves down. Again because they were so late in changing, some early season color is still there, and the mid-season color is intact. It is still a good show.
We are looking windy days Friday and Saturday, with an increasing chance of rain as Saturday progresses. The upside is that it will be warmer. Highs in the mid-60s should be the rule for the weekend, with lows only in the 50s. Sunday and Monday look pretty nice.
That is news from here. Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
