Not much talk about fall weather. Before we left for Florida 12 days ago, the fall weather in the north country was spectacular, almost hated to leave. Down here now it has been in the high 80s every day. Although we had to deal with TS Nestor Friday night and Saturday. Gulf is 81 degrees. Sitting outside now and it’s 80. Not hard to take.
3 weeks ago in the wind storm the acorns hitting the sky lights and metal roof sounded like machine gun fire. Today I’m just napping listening to the rain with only a few acorns and hickory nuts coming down. It’s been a weird fall. So many acorns but not so many leaves yet.
Don't ski the trees, ski the spaces between the trees.
I’m going trail building and camping at 9k for the next four days. The low at that elevation tomorrow night is 3 degrees! Ouch. I wish fall would hang on a bit longer through November. Oh well. On the brighter side Snowbowl has fired up the guns.
