    It's September 15th and the 1st signs of winter are already here.

    Our 1st frost is about 3 weeks ahead of schedule.

    Hope this is not a sign of a "Long Cold Miserable Minnesota Winter"!!!

    It's amazing that we can have frost in the morning and hit 70° in the afternoon!

    What's really sad, is in January, we will be thinking 32° is a heat wave!!

    Have a GREAT Day!


    We used the Weber Grill last night


    Our pumpkin patch


    Backyard is frosty, but no frost near the pond


    Frost on the windshield

    Frost the middle of Sept !!!!


    We don't get any of that yet !!!

  4. Well..have fun with that Todd. I don't envy you a bit. I moved to

    South West Florida in 1988 because I survived 13 years of

    Syracuse NY winters and said enough is enough. I have been

    back only once.

    You know what I used to say? If you get hot, it's easy to cool off quickly,

    but when you get cold from Northern winters, you are cold to the bone

    and it takes forever to warm up again....Enjoy!

    the week before we got down to 47 at our house and Monday it was back in the high 90's and 100  [​IMG]  today it is 58 right now and looks like low 90's next week. 

    they say if you don't like the weather here just wait a bit and it will change...lol

    after 70 days of 100-114 I feel like a popcicle at 58.  Yea and in Jan will be outside in a t shirt when its 50

    thinking this is some great weather..lol

    Our winter is like a baby wet and windy
  17. We also got some frost up here in N.E. WA,

    Then it went back up to pushing the triple digits in fact here in Springdale we got one day this month that was 110 F

    I always thought they always said.

    When it is to hot you can only get so Naked before they arrest you.

    When it is cold you can always put on a sweater.


    Hey Todd the good news is Winter is the best time of the year for Smoken/ BBQ'n.

    Sall Good

    I knew there was a reason I live in North Carolina. But then again, the smell of hardwood smoke on a clear bright winter day is hard to beat.[​IMG]
