A breezy day on top of the mountain

I thought the picture would be bigger. That's Mt Washington yesterday afternoon. Winds are gusting up over 100mph this weekend. Here's a link to the Mt Washington Observatory.

Rain is headed our way

A stuffed belly from Thanksgiving and lots and lots of football. I think I'll just lie in the sun. Clouds and rain are returning Sunday and Monday. In fact, it will be a cold rain. Still no snow.

Cooler Weather for Thanksgiving

All the rain in October spoiled most of the fall color this year. I did catch this shot across the lake. I've only had a little over a half inch of rain so far this month. Cooler temperatures are expected over Thanksgiving, hopefully cool enough for a fire.
I have included a link to the Accuweather global warming blog. Take note of the November 19 article on the Younger Dryas mini ice age.

Changes coming

Just a quick update. Sunday will be the last dry day in the 70s for awhile. Rain is likely overnight and tomorrow with falling temperatures during the day. Monday night will see lows near the 40 degree mark. Much cooler weather seems likely around Thanksgiving.

In answer to a previoous question....the leaf photo at the top is from last year. We never had a lot of color this year before the leaves were blown off in the rain.

Indian Summer?

There for awhile I written off Indian Summer, which usually comes in October. The past few afternoons have felt like Indian Summer.....Absolutely beautiful afternoons following cool mornings. At this time it doesn't appear we are in for any heavy rain for awhile. We could see some showers early in the week.
How bot Ida! A late season hurricane is entering the Gulf and north and then east. It used to be hurricane season ended on the first of November. Now, it's considered to be over by the end of November.

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Get Back Into The Water

As the Market again tops 10,000 once again a storm is gathering to the south. Hurricane season officially ends November 30th. It's been such a quiet year in the tropics...and now a new storm.
