Well, that's interesting to know and thanks for the link. Actually though, I believe the highest peak east of the Rockies is Harney Peak out in the Black Hills. Anyway, that's what they taught us in history, but that's been so long ago it could've shrunk by now.

Well, it's probably the highest peak east of the Mississippi.
It's definitely the highest place in the southeast.

We are actually having nice fall weather!

1 in 4 trees have some colour change, some vivid.
(colour change due to shorter daylight hours, plus mild drought)

BUT...

- We had at least 25 days with sunshine in September.
- Perhaps 3 days with some rain
- Only 5 days under 65 F
- Plenty of days in the 70's F
- Some days into the 80's F
- One or two days around 90 F
- Overnight lows between 45-60 F, approximately.

If this was normal, I would be a fan of Fall weather.

YAY!!!! Today is supposed to be a beautiful 87 degrees here. The only problem is we have a LOT of wind and there's plenty of it today. Our high tomorrow will only be 62 if the forecast is right. They think we'll have strong winds and large hail during the night, but at least we've got warmth today. Oh and the wind~gusting to 45 mph. That's a tropical storm or something, isn't it?

Today here in mid Missouri the weather was delightful. Low 80's and some breeze and mostly sunny all day. Right now the rain is coming down softly with a light breeze and some lightening and a little thunder. We really needed this rain as some trees and bushes and other plant life has suffered from the earlier drought that we had. Took a short trip around our county and some adjoining ones, sad to see so many smaller trees and bushes that have died already.

Some changes in the colour here, but it will be the second week of October before we see the 'big' change.

Voyager, some of the people will envy you since you're getting rain. Some areas of the country must be so dry.

It was a bit chilly here this morning. 43 was the lowest I saw. It is now 60 and is supposed to warm up to 76 today. Not warm enough for me, but it'll get worse.

Well, September started off very hot (96 degrees early in the month, then record high low temperature for September at 73), but most of the rest of the month was slightly above average. The first cold Fall storm came in on the 22nd and ended up being our wettest storm in a year. Another storm came in on the morning of the 29th. Around 2pm, I look out the window and what do I see?



And a little later...



Yes, that's right...snow! On September 29! With officially a trace of snow at the airport, it was the first September snow here since 1978! It usually doesn't come for 3-6 more weeks.

Another snow-producing storm could come on Friday (the 5th). This Fall has been excellent so far.

It's been so warm in North TX these past few weeks that I thought autumn had given up but finally it will make itself known this weekend. Saturday night lows in the mid 50s with a high near 80 on Sunday...and then upper 40s to lower 50s Sunday night with a high of 77 Monday...Finally!!

And WOW, Bob Rulz...it was such a hot summer in SLC with quite a few days above 100..and then you get snow the end of September...too strange...LOL
