  1. Frost Advisory Mornings Of The 17th & 18th Obs

    Dropped to 33...frost all over the yard and covering cars. Don't think I saw a lot of it when it was darker out Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G890A using Tapatalk

    34, patchy frost here.

    Drought concerns notwithstanding, but the next seven days can only be described as epic. THIS is what autumn is all about.

    Have had some nice steady rain this week. Kind of a lousy weather weekend for fall. Not enough rain to make a difference, but just generally lousy. Sunday looks decent, but way too warm for this time of year. Still wanting to go to a pumpkin patch on a cool day
  5. Hurricane Nate in Gulf

    My mom and sister live about 10 miles southwest of Mobile....it's looking more and more like they will be in that northeast quadrant. They have two horses on the property, hoping they are battening down the hatches. To make matters worse, my brother-in-law is Coast Guard Reserve, and he has been and will be in Florida helping with hurricane relief.

    For those of you that wake up early, this is my favorite time of year to go outside before dawn and view the morning sky. The winter constellations are stunning, especially if you have a relatively dark sky. The dry, cold conditions make the sky pop so much more than it does in the summer.

    I know the drought conditions are not ideal but...good lord, what a beautiful stretch of weather. Mowed the grass tonight, which was nice because the strong breeze blew most of the clippings out of my yard I kid....sort of. My favorite time of year bar none

    We were on the edge of the very outermost cloud band from Jose today.

    Summer is exerting its revenge for all of the posts gloating about earlier sunsets.
  13. That is an absolute nightmare for some of those areas that were wrecked by Irma. Thinking Virgin Islands in particular.

    What is the September version of "lousy Smarch weather"? This humidity, with no breeze and bugs buzzing around, is for the birds. That said, we had this coming
  15. Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    I had to get my riding tractor repaired, the cable from the PTO lever to underneath the mower snapped. While it was in the shop, I just went ahead and paid the $120 or so for a tune up. I think that was a good investment...it's 100x cleaner, the blades are sharpened, and they did a lot of other maintenance stuff that, quite frankly, I have trouble finding time to do. Of course, because my lawn was nearly two weeks between cuts, I had to spend about an hour yesterday raking grass into piles and putting them in lawn bags. My hamstrings are barking this morning
