We don't have any snow forecast for the next 14 days, thank goodness. But, I always make sure I have my winter tires on sometime October, just in case.

Well, all the trees are bare now, even my elm has finally given up all its leaves. Our hawthorne and the mountain ash across the street are LOADED with berries. I think that bodes ill for the winter to come!

My feeders are emptying pretty quickly lately. I just had a gang of sparrows staring in the front window at me cracking their knuckles and hinting strongly that I fill the feeder OR ELSE.

The sky is such a weird color today too. That dark slate gray that you just know means there is s___ coming. Ugh. Its not supposed to be here til Monday, but I suspect there will be flurries off and on this weekend.

No sunrise til 800 or so this morning. I really don't care for these short short days. It will be dark by 430 tonight. 8.5 hours of light seems too short for me. Bleah. No wonder bears hibernate!

The landscapers have been here twice this Fall to vacuum up the fallen leaves. They use truck sized vacuums. the grounds look good once again. The leaves are mostly gone.

This Fall has been mild compared to last year and we have used little heat so far. Always a good thing.

Its hovering around 0 right now. Our furnace is on and off all day, and has been for weeks. The dog loves it out there, he doesn't like it hot.

Should be 70 here today!
All my neighbors leaves are in my yards.
The squirrels are tearing up my lawn
Might have to bring in the outdoor rug soon.
