Nice job of organizing the garage. I need to make better use of mine. Slowly getting there.
LOL, no. I live in Las Vegas after retiring there from Iowa. For me this weather is more spring like in temperatures. The winters are so mild I hesitate to use the word to describe them. Hence spring now and fall later. I don't feel that there is a winter here.

We finally got a windows open day! 72 degrees and sunny at 10:30 AM. Got to take advantage of it while we can as by Friday, we are back up to around 90.

Picked up new hearing aids yesterday. So far the only difference from my 10 year-old ones is listening to my smartphone using Bluetooth. Last night I put a new one in my right ear, and an old one in my left. I could discern no difference.

Tonight we are going to a restaurant and I'm going to do the same test after spending some time with both new ones in. I'll put one old one in, then after listening for a bit, put both old ones in.

The old ones have a phone setting where I can send the sound from one to the other. Great for sitting together at a bar. I hear her in both aids. If the new ones do it I can't find the setting.

So far they are not justifying the cost.

Snow forecast this upcoming weekend. Way, way too early in the year. We just started Autumn.

Heavy rain and some flooding in the desert of Southern Arizona, from a Pacific hurricane. I had an inch and a half in my rain gauge early this morning and it hasn't stopped raining. Some roads are closed and there was a tornado warning for a town southwest of Tucson. This has happened before, but it's always kind of a shock to see so much rain. Many of the washes outside town where I live
are usually dry and not bridged.

Highs here in upstate SC will remain in the low 90s into the first week of October. It's dry, and we could really use some significant rain. I'll take this any day to the below zero winter temps I suffered through for 30 years in northern Illinois, though.

I still can't believe it but I am retiring on Tuesday. As in THIS Tuesday. As in October 1.

YIPPEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I am so enjoying reading all of your posts. Many of them are about the main reason I've been looking forward to retirement --

which I think of as "stopping to smell the roses."
