Stay safe. I have seen what a storm surge can do. Not a pretty site. One year during a really bad Nor'easter, there was a storm surge in Winthrop and Revere. Two towns right next to us. They are surrounded by the Atlantic and it was in the middle of the winter. Nothing like slushing through icy cold water in the middle of the winter.

It's been so nice the past few days. The temps have barely hit 100, and I can feel autumn in the air.

Next week is supposed to be in the low to mid 90's - almost cold. (kidding)

Kathy Lee....my daughter and her family are headed to Vegas as I type this - they're on a short vacation and catching a flight from there to Oregon.

What is your weather like right now?

Beautiful here along the river, didn't get much above 75F, and sunny. Days are getting shorter though.

Cheryl, barely hit 100!

This is heaven compared to 115! I'm liking the shorter days....but I'll be complaining again once it's dark by 5.

Cheryl, you're a morning person. You get to see plenty of sun during the day. Meanwhile, when I can get away with it, I'm a nooner. With the sun going down before 4:30 PM during the longest days of winter, when I sleep in late I feel like a vampire...


It was a perfect autumn day. Big, gray, puffy clouds in the sky, then a downpour. Sun came out after that and started to take the rest of the humidity away. Going to be good sleeping weather tonight.

I hope you have a good pair of waders! This probably isn't your first rodeo, so carry on. Meanwhile, I'll keep hoping that weather moves past you quickly and brings some of that needed rain up our way. Holiday weekend be danged.

CG....sort of a morning person - as I get older the earlier my body clock wants me to wake up. I used to have to set the alarm if I had to be up before 7 or 8, now I wake up around 6 no matter when I go to bed. And I can't go back to sleep no matter how much I want to, even with the house to myself and no one needing anything.


Take care, Floridians!

We made it through with lots of wind, rain, and flooding. Fortunately for us, no major damage - just a few tree limbs, backyard under water, etc.

Hermine is now inflicting his ills on the eastern seaboard. Those of you in Virginia, Maryland, etc, I hope you have battened down the hatches! Stay safe and dry, friends.

If you are further up the coast, use the time to get prepared. Hermine is a huge rainmaker! I wish you all well.

DH is getting dumped on at home in Virginia, but I'm enjoying a gorgeous day at the South Haven (Mich.) Farmers Market with my mom. 70 degrees, low humidity. It's just beautiful.
