Our daytime temps have been staying in the 60's, at night down into the low 50's. They will be turning the heat on and the AC off on Oct. 1st. Can't come fast enough for me. I am always cold.

got the grass partially edged, Dad was right, has to be wet to edge. Have the water running to night to soak the area I want to take down to the dirt. I hope the weather is nice for that in the morning.

I got a shock when I saw the morning temperature. 46F. Summer is over. And the heat has not been turned on. Everyone is waiting for Indian Summer. We may skip Fall and go right into Winter. It has happened before.

It's been raining on and off all week and now it looks like there may be a hurricane coming this weekend. I'm headed out to buy a few supplies, including picking up a couple prescriptions. Otherwise, we have plenty of food and I'll just remind DH to make sure all the gas tanks are full and we have an extra propane tank for the grill. With the gas stove and water heater and gas generator, we should be okay

We're scheduled to get 3"-5" of rain over the next couple of days. It started raining overnight and it's pouring right now.

We went from "unseasonably warm" last week to "below normal" this week. It's currently 62F, and supposed to get down in the 40's tonight.

We had marble-sized hail yesterday. Luckily we were not outside when it hit.

PF, I'm glad you weren't outside either, that would hurt! I hope it didn't damage your car.

GG, I was just watching about the hurricane on World News. YIKES!

Sounds like most everyone here is getting some wet weather! It's definitely been cooling down a little here, I think the triple digits are done for the year. Chance of rain this Sunday - I'll be doing my rain dance!

That was a good downpour. The very first reports showed the storm headed right for Boston. Thankfully, the weather report has changed drastically. Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment for the arthritis in my hands. The rain couldn't come at a better time. Fingers are so swollen. Happens every time it rains.
