Holy cow, PLEASE NOT YET. The general thoughts here are we are in for a hard winter. And we have not had much snow for several years although we had a cold winter this past year, then it got wet and stayed a cold wet damp spring....

I was ready after the 20th straight day of temps above 90.

I saw a couple of woolly bear caterpillars crawling south, when they carry luggage it means a cold winter is ahead. ;-)

Have had quite a few days of very foggy mornings. Last 10 days have been over 93 except one, and nights in the 68 temps. Yesterday afternoon hit 97 in the sun on my open porch. Sure hope it doesn't swing back the opposite end in January
