this pic was before it changed. but wasn't good color this year so didn't get any good pics. rainy and cold. peppers are still chugging along but looks like it'll all be over by thursday or friday.*
color! - not from this year but from 2 or 3 years ago. been a couple years since I've seen a nice idian summer. last year was cold and wet too as i recall. its all la Ninas fault.*
i think the weather affected it. not enough rain in august maybe. still saw 2 or 3 paintings on trip up north.
You're making me homesick.
MIKE! well, there's always photos. so you can stay on a beach.
Snowing now. First snow 2011, oct 27. If anything sticks to the ground i'll take a picture. Didn't even have a frost this year. *
"Snowing now . . . "aint homesick anymore.
aint homesick anymorethat'll do it. snow didn't stick around though. but the cold temps did. time to fire up the underground grow lights. *
oh poo, snow is fine til the ides of january. by march, snow is just dirty piles. we had frost warnings for up state i think, tho my garden looks dead.
Big wet snowstorm coming for the NE if the forecast is right. Looks like Mikes hometown might get 6" or more on Saturday. *
The new normal: Montana and Atlanta vie for the first big snowfall of the year.Life would be sweeter if G-Dub bet his ill-gotten gains on the Texas Rangers to win the Series.But he'd still have kick-ass lifetime health care. Wait-government sponsored health care with no premiums? Isn't that Socialism? Oh wait, we're paying for it. Sorry.Hey, Mike. Don't nobody here intentionally make you pine for the fjords.Those leaves are prettier for the short time they hang on the trees, versus when our northern redneck neighbors decide to burn them.Soaking wet, in the culvert? That's why God made diesel fuel. And a breeze to direct it elsewhere.
Wet leaves and diesel. Jeezis, people still do that. Same kind of of woodchucks that burn their house down trying to deep fry a frozen turkey in a vat of oil next to the garage. Or would vote for Newt Gingrich. Or any number of other stupid pointless things.*
since we didn't get our first frost here in the Huron river valley until last week, we've had a riot of color. some of the roses are still going. no snow here yet, either, which is always nice. October snow in Michigan isn't the disaster it is in NYC, but we like to procrastinate whenever we can.
no doubt snow is coming.
"Looks like Mikes hometown might get 6" or more on Saturday." I think it was closer to 12".

I think it was closer to 12yeah, i was keeping an eye on that. i ain't ready for any of that kind of trouble. not yet. fortunately for me it all blew off to the east-northeast and left me alone. no trees down or power out or anything like that. *
we like to procrastinate whenever we can.was looking at the long range winter forecast and looks like you might get the worst of it this year. MI, Ohio, the Ohio valley, eastern Great Lakes... might be where the big snows and storms wind up. not that that is anything new. but thats the forecast they are handing out at places like state college and noaa. *
probably pretty similar. basically a snowy stormier than usual winter for the midwest. i guess it depends on something called the Arctic Oscillation pattern which in its negative phase (very cold artic atmospheric temps) pumpscold artic air down into the midwest where it crashes into the jet stream and makes snow and storms. Or something like that.*
