We are supposed to get to 45F tonight. I still have the windows open about two inches for fresh air.

61F here now at 9PM, and a low of 49F tonight.

Princess, I also sleep a lot better when it's cool. Can't stand any heat blowing down on me in the middle of the night. Sooo...guess I can't complain, this is actually the most perfect time of year here. No AC, no heater, just the ceiling fans.

Sometimes I have the windows open a little when I go to bed, but the birds wake me up at dawn with all their chirping. LOL

I just bought a new set of flannel sheets for the bed! I'll have to wait a while before I can try them out, though.

My MIL left her bedroom window open all winter long...even when they lived in Cleveland! Himself remembers little bits of snow piling up into mini-drifts on his folks' bedroom window sill. Brrrrr. I mean I love sleeping in a cooler room, too, but not so cold as to make getting out from under the cozy covers a real challenge the next morning.

We're at 66 degrees right now, and very windy. The prediction for the next week, however, is upper 70s and 80s. Blech.

It's going to be hotter this weekend than it has been all summer, reaching upwards of 90.
And we're already into fall.

Gonna head down to the boat to clean it up before the marina power washes, shrink wraps, and puts it away for the winter.

The water temp is a brisk 64°. Guess who gets to go swimming to help with the cleanup?

Son Number One, bt?

This weekend's 90s are just making up for this past June's cold weather. I was wearing sweatpants and considering a sweatshirt for a few days back then. I've been saying for years that we aren't having global warming. It's just that the seasons are shifting, starting a month later than what our own timelines expect. Dog Days of September, anyone? Just don't tell Sirius.

GG, looks like we're going to have to keep an eye on Maria next week. At least Monday looks like it will be OK, which is good because I have to go take care of some errands Monday AM.

As far as the weather, it's 69 and sunny right now. Supposed to get up in the 80's today.

As of today's 8 am update from the National Hurricane Center, it looks like she'll be staying out at sea. There will probably be more high surf in the OBX, though.

Last night it got down to 38⁰F, the overnight low tonight is suppose to be 40⁰F
HEH! Isn’t this Arizona?
Oh yeah, it gets cold at night in the desert…
HA!
Just bought an electric blanket for my Mother for when she comes to visit
in December... I think we'll be putting that on OUR bed in the meantime! My husband also likes to leave windows open.

As long as she doesn't decide to either pay us a direct visit, or turn into another Matthew I think we'll be OK. We don't have any plans or Tuesday thru Thursday anyway.

It's 74 and sunny this AM. So far, no AC needed.
