    It's Just NOT right

    Yesterday was in the mid 70's and humid - I was sweating

    Today is another day in the mid 70's and humid and I am sweating - and it's only 9:00 am

    Shoot man - this is New England.

    It's supposed to be no higher than about 65, with LOW humidity - and even THAT would be considered quite warm.

    I am NOT happy about this.

    It's hard to get enthusiastic and motivated in a heat wave like this.

    Hang around for a day or so and it'll get back to 'normal.'

    It was 79 here yesterday (Normal is 62 for this time of year), but today it's 55 and not supposed to get any warmer. Rained overnight. Probably get to your area by tomorrow...

    Leaves here are near peak color, and falling rapidly. I cleaned up three vac trailer loads yesterday, and this morning it looks like I hadn't done anything. If it dries out a bit this afternoon, I'll collect some more...

    Jim - yeah you get the weather 1-3 days before we do.

    The leaves here have been falling for about a week pretty steady.

    I haven't cut the grass in several weeks and it was getting tall. Today I am in the yard cleaning up a bit with the riding mower. Emptied that thang at least 20-30 times.

    I'm gonna wait till thankggiving week to do the leave cleanup. They should be all down by than.

    Sure is doggone HOT today. Weather channel says 75 but the humidity is high too.

    We have hardly had a break from rain for the past couple of weeks, I shouldn't complain since so many placed need the wet stuff, But I could use a few dry days so I can get some outside chores done . Temps have been great though 57 today and in the 70's by the weekend, Not bad for fall. At least we don't have the white stuff----Yet!

    I like it. I still can ride with out coat and gloves.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    It's HOT - when it's above 65.

    When it's 95 or above - it's swealtering unbearable - heck - or something like he....

    I don't like that stuff. Rather have snow than that stuff.
