Yup. Didn't think the above average temperature would last as long as they did. Didn't turn on the A/C, expecting the high temps to only last a day or two. Thinking temps in the lower 70's at night, no problem sleeping. Big mistake.

Currently 77 degrees. Typing this in my shorts with fan in the window. Expected low tonight, 69 degrees, no rain in the forecast until Wednesday

Frugal should be my middle name. To cheap to turn on the A/C. I'm currently 73 years of age, didn't have A/C for 53 plus of those years. Will probably survive another night, or two, or three, without A/C.
I have an excuse. CRS.

About 2 inches of rain in the last 8 days. Rain has been the slow soak in type needed. Currently drizzling.

Radishes in the garden have perked up. Garlic planted almost 2 moths ago has sprouted.

Normal first frost is any time between mid and end of October. Hopefully it will hold off for another 3 or 4 weeks.

It has been so long here I have forgotten what rain looks like. local farmers have been feeding hay from 1 to 2 months depending on area.

We've had rain off and on for about a week. Picked up over an inch last night. We are now right at average first frost date. I'm ready. Not much left in garden and time to clean up, till and shut down for winter. Vern
