We had a frost here, but not a killing frost. The garden wasn't affected. It was 37F up on the porch and in the new place it was 60F. On the cool side. ;D :D

Didn't go into work. Listening to mellow music with the door open. Periods of rain, and 74. Warmer than I'd like, but the air smells good, and I'm enjoying the clouds.

It is starting to feel and look like fall here also. We have had rain for four days depending on where you live around here the rain gauges said 9 1/2 inches to 1 3/4 inches. Where I was logging they had 3 1/2 inches. It has been a crazy summer here hardly any kind of breeze just dead calm lots of rain but hardly any thunder. and here at home just the last few weeks we have been bothered by mosquitos and very few bugs of any kind. Maybe all the spraying there doing on crops has killed them all and we will be next ! :-\

We had another frost this morning but still did not kill the squash up at the new place. But it did kill the squash at my brother's. Dug some taters tonight, the biggest had to be 10 or 11 oz. ;D None have been hollow so far. :)

RAIN!!!! Not 6 inches in 2 hours either. :o  Right now a nice steady rain. Started around 8pm.
No frost that I know of in the area.
Kinda like the garden behind the farm house. My brother had a garden there,got hit by frost one year. It's all open around it. I am a little higher,maybe 50 feet,hard to tell and have the woods on one side about 100 feet away. No frost on my garden that year.

Almost too warm to be cutting firewood. :D   78
I worked with a guy and we was having a warm fall,right up until late Nov. My boss kept asking him if he got his wood in yet. He kept saying it was too warm. Than the weather broke and turned off cold and he was complaining that he was way behind on his wood. ::)

Warm and rain. We had 1.5 days of sun over the weekend after two weeks of rain, and it's back to raining again, and warm as far as the forecast goes. I'm dying to get back to cutting wood, but it has to be <70. I don't like being hot.

Been cool been cool here in Sprague River, a little bit of frost each morning but the tomatoes are still happily producing in the solar kiln that would otherwise be sitting idle.

Nothing I have to do is worth me getting sick in this heat.   Spent time inside doing some CAD work and watching milling utube videos.
