Argh, and for you gardeners...your plants are gonna die eventually anyway! Ugh, this is so stupid, this is the 2nd time in as many weeks that the wind has done this to us.

The trees are turning, but so fast that we won't have time to enjoy them.

Turned on some heat this past week. The day time temps climb, but the heat feels good in the mornings.
We have not had a freeze yet either and probably won't until the end of November. I'm looking forward to getting rid of the geckos! We have had the heat on just a little to take the chill off the house. We have only dropped to the forties though.

It's been surprising warm here in Utah. Today was 59 and an unseasonably warm 67 is forecasted for Saturday. Saturday afternoon I'm going to make yet another attempt (this will be number 3) to mow up the remaning leaves on my lawn. Sunday's forecasted high is only supposed to reach 46 as a storm is coming and I think our warm temps will be a thing of the past. We really do need the moisture. Hopefully the winter season will bring lots of snow to the ski resorts and none to my driveway.

I have a bad feeling that this winter will be very warm again. I looked at the computer models just now and it does not look encouraging for those that like colder air.

Our trees are turning, finally they are beautiful. The weather is starting to feel 'right' but some days it is still a bit on the warm side. I have not used the a/c in about three or four days, the heat came on for a tiny bit early this morning. It has been dreary on and off for three days now, but the sun always breaks thru, no rain lately, we need it..

Speaking of rain, or lack of it. I just saw a video on Good Morning America where there's a guy (one guy) in Atlanta that uses an average of 400,000 gallons of water per month. And they say there's nothing that can be done about it. Strange, here if you go against water conservation efforts they will fine the heck out of you; even cut off your water at the main line and lock you out. Why doesn't Georgia have the same laws?

good question. Maybe he has friends in high places? All kidding aside, this is a vast slap in the face of people who are cutting back and obeying the laws...to use that much water during a drought situation shows his lack of caring of anything. Did it say what he used this water for? Watering herds of cattle? Keeping some living thing besides grass and trees alive?

He wouldn't speak to the media. He has a huge mansion but come on, 400,000 gallons a month? That's over 10,000 gallons a day. Yikes.

that is a waste, just because he has money does not give him the right to use that type of water. Sounds like he has his hands in local officials pockets.
