It is safe to say that I am weary of summer, yet I still count my blessings in regards to the many foggy, cold mornings we had in July and August, along with pleasant 80-degree days. This summer was not a bad one at all, as far as temperatures go, but I am still ready for a change in seasons.
So now the wait for rainfall begins, especially at the end of this extremely dry year -- a record breaker out here in the west. But before then we have a roof to repair and pellet stove to do the annual service on, so hopefully we can get all that done before the (hopefully) wet season sets in.
Fingers crossed on all accounts, especially for timely, heavy rain.
In the meantime, we in the west wait earnestly for that first fallen leaf of autumn.
