Yesterday was overcast and rainy all day. The low for the day came right at noon. That low was bracketed by higher temps, the morning hit 84, the afternoon topped out at 88. Way too high for good fall weather. My definition of fall is overnight lows in the mid 60’s for a week or longer… We are a ways off from that happening yet.
And, today looks like it’s starting out to be a repeat…
Sitting here looking out each morning I am struck by how green it is this year. It actually looks like late spring more than early fall. You won’t catch me complaining about our greater relationship to rain this year… I have a too sharp memory of the drought we went through a few years ago. And our vacation through New Mexico brought those memories into focus.
Another thing that has brought back fond memories of our vacation are the hummingbirds. Our stay in Estes Park was blessed with an abundance of hummingbirds, and this past week has been just as crazy hummingbird wise. Migration is on. And if we don’t see a front blow thru, it is going to be quite crowded and a bit noisy around the feeders.
It looks like the first batch of rain is passing us to the east. But not to worry more is building to the south. And, I’ve made it through my first cup of coffee and the temperature is still in the 70’s.
