It's a "refreshing" 39F here along the river tonight. Supposed to go lower. I covered the volunteer bushy petunia, but I fear the Magilla Perillas and ornamental sweet potato vines are gonners, even though I covered them last night. Strong winds and temps in the 20's took their toll. Glad I picked the remaining tomatoes and brought most of the potted plants inside.

39 and down into the 20's already?! Holy cow, Dawg...y'all are getting some cold weather early!

It's 72 now, supposed to get down to 60 tonight. We had another big downpour again an hour or so ago. The road crews have been cleaning up on the highway - hard to grasp the magnitude of the clean up and what those involved have gone through. And El Nino hasn't even hit yet, it's going to be a long winter/spring.

Looks like something out of a movie - it's amazing no one was killed or seriously hurt.

Oh good grief! Glad no one was hurt! How the heck is that going to be cleaned up?

Lots of cranes, backhoes, and whatever other excavators they can get. I hear Interstate 5 is open now, they've been working on clearing at least one lane of hwy 58.

Oh no! I am so very happy no one was hurt!

The weather is very nice and becoming cool here. There have been no rains!

What is your weather like right now?

They even had a story on our local news about it here, and said something like more than 30,000 dumptruck loads of mud will have to be moved!

Thanks, I guess it looks better in a photo than in real life. It's really tiny.

Yeah, it was nifty. We just get anxious when there is something so snow-like in October. There's a chance of flurries overnight. Eek! At least I already got the winter tires put on Sigrid.

Right now it is a beautiful fall day. Temps are in the lower fifty's, the sun is shinning and there is no wind for a change.
