This has got to be the quickest year in my life, and now Thanksgiving is just two weeks away. I do believe that real cold weather has arrived much sooner than it has in years past.
The weatherman, or woman is once again talking about a "polar vortex" getting ready to kick us in the seat of our pants. When they come upon something new in their vocabulary, they seem to beat a dead horse.
It's here! Cold weather has finally arrived with a capitol, BURRRR. Halloween night was cold enough for me. You will hear from people telling you that you need cold weather to kill off the insects in the ground.
This is the time of the year that I call the " inbetweens ", where it is still too warm here, but not cool enough where our winter birds will start showing up. Just about the only thing here is our regular all the time species, that you can find here around your feeders.
I was kind of hoping that we would have had a round of frost here to turn off the lawn mowing app in this area of Lebanon. We are planning to decorate the yard for Halloween, with a few tombstones and other haunted houses thingys, but to get all of the stuff out will require mowing around them.
I hope that everyone is enjoying this wet October. This is usually the driest month of the year. I would be safe to say that the good Lord knows more than us mortals.
After I woke up this past Saturday morning, I was almost expecting to find frost on the ground. The mercury had plummeted down into the low 40's here at my house and even lower than that out in the country.
Another weekend has come and gone without my best friend, Anthony Gray. It wasn't a total washout, as I was visiting some of my Native American friends at this years Pow Wow at the Mundy park in Mt. Juliet.
It looks like we are fixing to get another dose of cooler weather. I remind myself of the period of time back in 2011 when I came down sick and was in a coma for 14 days. It was still short sleeve weather when I went in the hospital at U.M.C., on the 11th day of October.
Relief is on the way, no, I don't mean the kind you get with " plop plop fizz fizz", save that for stomach ailments. I am talking about the coolness in the air. Sure, it will probably get back to being stuffy hot in the afternoons, but I am going to enjoy the cooler temperatures while we have them.
