Fall is here… even though we have had at a September of 80F – 90F, this morning, the thermometer read 36F. Time to take the window fans down! I saw two wollie-worms in the garden today (one front black & back brown, the other front and back black and middle brown). The trees are turning, though mostly brown as we have not had rain for most of September with all that heat. The garden is starting to slow down, bearing less fruit and mostly getting pruned for the goats to eat. The Hagger-town Almanack for 2018 is out. Time for the annual Fog in August report for our part of West Virginia.
We seemed to have lots of foggy days in August (and September). Our commute count was a total of 17 foggy mornings. Four were light (we could see across the valley), 6 moderate (we could see either the bottom or top of the mountains, but not both), and 7 heavy (we could see little).
The Almanack calls for 19 snow storms this winter. Five light, lake-effect snows, 11 snow storms (though some are listed as “north” or “south”, thus missing us), one heavy snow, and two Nor-Easters. Guess it will all depended on whether the temperature is above or below freezing.
Time to put new tires on the truck.
