Bye-Bye 60's

The little graph at left shows the amazing weather we enjoyed during the past week.  Yesterday's official high temperature as a surprising 66 degrees.  Wave bye-bye.  Although today's high is till progged to be 60 degrees, the winds of change will be gusting close to 40 miles per hour as a low pressure system blows in and drops the daytime highs down into the mid-40's.  Tuesday morning's low could be in the 10-20 degree range if the NWS weather wonks have this one right.  Although a modest high pressure will return after this low moves through, daytime highs will struggle to get back into the 50's.  It's been great to enjoy such phenomenal late October weather and we're sad to see it go.

The weather was perfect this weekend for all the outside chores Susun tackled.  She was a whirling dervish both days.  Yesterday, she practically sprinted around the property while buttoning up the flower beds and pots.  She was pretty amazing to watch and she didn't stop until it was all done and totally tidy.  Good thing she had that level of energy as conditions are going to be anywhere near as friendly in coming days.

We made real good progress on a variety of tasks but our productivity paled in comparison to her's.  At least we did get those pop-top zippers lubricated during the heat of the day and they work much better now.  The camper rig itself is very close to being feng shui and ready to roll.  Although we both have no doubt we will have everything rigged and ready come 11/1/11, we hope next year to have all these chores done far more in advance.  It would have been really great to be able to take off and enjoy the great weather this weekend.

Ah, well, 'tis the price we pay for being migratory.

It was a fine surprise to see a blog comment from DF & LBR Nemac this morning.  Thanks, Nancy!

Not much else to report.  Have a great day & Many Cheers, jp
