Wild weather

Wild weather sun

Yesterday was rain rain rain, and the wind kicked up overnight—woke us up kind of wind. That kind of wind sure makes us edgy!

By morning the rain/wind had slacked off (mostly), and there was a kinda normal several hours (glorious sky; see photo), as the temperatures rose to the highest point maybe by 11am. Then the wind kicked up and the temps have been dropping to a predicted overnight low at maybe 7am breaking 40°F. The wind wind wind means there are small branches down under all the trees and a live maple branch came down at the neighbors’, narrowly missing a pickup. Safe!

Raccoon leavings

Sad story of life: the raccoons have somehow raided the last of the corn (less than a dozen ears, I think) in the same neighbors’ garden. We people got almost all of it, however. 😋
