It's afternoon here and it isn't 100 deg so this must be fall...right?

(Last Saturday's moon was the fall equinox, so I know it's fall........but I've seen some gum and tallow tree leaves turning yellow and red too............................oh, wait...that's from the herbicide I sprayed on em.)

We shall see tomorrow what this cold front does. It hasn't been scalding hot but the humidity has been brutal. It needs to cool off a hair so I can plant some oats/ rye. I bought a new pair of overalls and every thing.

My brother said the same thing. Said we'd go from summer, straight into winter, and the snow will start to fall as the rain has, for the last 3 1/2 months! :|

Drove into Baker early yesterday morning. Went by two places that had sprinkler irrigation going. Everything under the irrigation was a sheet of ice. One had a leak spraying water on the fence. There were icicles hanging from the barb wire. Winter is going to be here sooner than you think.

Winter is coming but I was down to a Tee shirt by noon today. We killed a rattle snake on the road out front on Tuesday. Winter is coming but it isn't here yet.
