Temps are Finally Dropping

This has been the warmest October on record. 

No global warming? Snort! Just my luck.

If you have known me for more than about 3 minutes, you know I hate hot weather and sunshine. I’ve been feeling very cheated these last few weeks.

The leaves have turned the same color as the crane chicks. Folks are burning the ones that have fallen, so it looks and smells like fall, but it has been in the mid 70s.

Starting tomorrow I am going to be happier, my camp mates not so much. Look at those highs! Yay, it’s my turn!

    I’m with you Colleen, fall is my favorite season because of cooler temps and baggy sweatshirts so let the good times roll!

    LOL Colleen, you are amazing— how ever did you stand the hazy, hot, humid summers at Patuxent? WI weather in the mid 70’s sounds awesome to this Marylander. Glad real Fall weather is arriving and love that gorgeous picture of the colts. TY for all your work with OM and the Whoopers.

    Been waiting for my turn too! It’s been in the 90’s here in FL and this Wednesday our first cool down since May for the high of 70°!
