I feel cheated. No Fall.

Usually I can keep the windows open for 2 to 3 months during the fall and the spring.

Grrrrrrr!!!

It seems to me that global warming is alternating with global freezing. Brutal summers followed by brutal winters.
There's been an unusual weather pattern throughput the south this week. I don't think that necessarily means there will be no normal fall weather.

We've had high winds all day and now it's raining again. The high was forecast to be 69 but it never made it past 65. But we're looking forward to sunny low 70s for Tuesday and the rest of the week.

We've had some rain here too today, but nothing worth measuring. Recently I think you get more rain in the desert, than we do here on the coast Cheryl. Odd.

By the way, that was an interesting article about Indian Summer CG. It lead me to more reading about the subject, specifically what it means in the South West. How wonderful it is to track down interesting subjects. I wish my dear Mom had lived long enough to know the internet. She would take me to the library for nearly every question I had. What a remarkable Mom.

Thanks, Princess! We sure can use it.

Holy moly, it's still raining. I don't think it quit all night, my street is like a river now and yards are flooded. I read on FB that some locals coming home from trips out of town were having to find alternate routes due to flash flooding.

Nothing near what South Carolina is going through right now - oh my gosh, my heartfelt thoughts and prayers are going out for the folks and their loved ones in the middle of that disaster. Don't we have a couple of members in that area? Bakechef?

Cat is schedule to leave tomorrow by air. She is concerned also. If Joaquim is in the area, they may not be able to take off.

Oh yes, of course! CatLady is in one of the Carolinas - my brain isn't working very well today. Be safe, all!

And CatPat is here from Romania and staying with CatLady. She is here with Nicu a very close family friend. He is the pilot that flew her here in the family plane.
