Today is the last official day of Summer. Fall has arrived.
Say it isn't so!! Could we please skip winter this year? We had two of them in bundled into one season last year.
This is the time of year where I never get to roll up my hose. Last night was out there for an hour. The wind has been really brisk! Yep, fall is here
Yikes, fall is already here. Soon we'll be bundled up in sweaters, running frost cloth everywhere and yearning for warmer temps. The comfortable stuff is what never sticks around here for long. Last winter scarred me for life.
Ha, helps to belly ache, last night I ended up a little rain. Only .18" but I'll take what I can get. Cooled things down nicely too.
I know what you mean Bren. Crotons are going limp so you spend two hours saturating roots to perk them up. It gets dark, go inside to eat a late dinner. Get ready for bed and you hear the rain on the roof although the weather person reported no chance of rain.
It always seems to rain after you water.
No rain here for over two weeks now. Tampa Int'l Airport's montly rainfall average for September is 6.5". As of Friday the 24th, there's 1.01" in the bucket.
For you lovers of probability and statistics, here's what the Na'tl Weather Service has to say: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/images/tbw/TopNews/PDF/WhenCool10.pdf
For those not in Florida, you can probably find something similar at your local Wx site.
With this depression like system that is passing over south Florida, I recorded 3 1/2" of rain between yesterday and today. And we were about to turn on our sprinklers just before it started yesterday am. But............enough!
