    Only got up to 83 in Panama City today. Hoping this cold front passes; the pool is down below 90 now.

    It was 90 & 95 degrees last week until this cold front came through the last two nights. It got down to 45 degrees last night and we started getting firewood calls left and right. They went into a panic and we sold about 6 cords of wood today alone.

    Not yet. Still got the mower deck on the John Deere. One more cut, then the chains and front blade. Gonna blow out the sprinkler system in a couple hours. Stake in my wind/snow break at the edge of the drive. Change furnace filter. Pound in driveway locator stakes...

    Winter
    R.T.


    Tall, dark sentinels of the land
    bow to Nature's iron hand
    and close their mouths for winter's fast
    void of breath
    miming death
    the time for growth has passed

    Icy blasts that rent the air
    like sharpened knives with glassy glare
    and pile their refuse, high and deep
    chilling white
    freezing fright
    the land has gone to sleep

    All of life prepares itself
    for frigid air and coldness' stealth
    the cold will kill without a care
    numbing sleep
    Deadly deep
    awaits the unaware
