End is in Sight


Sadly, the end of the summer-like weather, that I have been writing about, is in sight for the region.

Cooler temperatures, including lows in the 40s will be arriving before the end of the week.

Friday night it will be cold! The low is anticipated to be 47 degrees, a huge change from this morning's 70 degrees which feels like 79 according to the weather reporters. 

And I am expecting to golf on Saturday morning! It will be cold.

End of Summer Look of the Yard
October 9, 2018
At least it will feel like an autumn day and I will be able to get a lot of the wood cut up that will become firewood for the winter.

It is sad to see the warmer weather end. I have ben enjoying the warmth and clinging onto the last vestiges of summer. Chris and I invited Jeremy and Julie over last evening to sit around the fire pit and chat. Even thought it was warm enough to be comfortable in shorts and sandals, the fire was nice and they helped us to celebrate the end of phase 2 of the project.

The yard, however, has that end of the summer look. The grass is getting thin form the incessant rain followed by blasting heat. It has not worn well and wet will have to do some work on the lawn to help it return to the full green look that we enjoy. I can see where the rain water has washed away most of the younger grass strands. Perhaps some overseeing will help.

It seems as if there is always something more to do!
