Went for a ride today, couldn't believe all the trees that have changed color since last weekend. Got out of the car at a flea market and started to walk around. I was a little cool, I had to go back to my car for something to put on. It was about 50, breezy and damp. Drove to Wachusett Mountain and to the summit, I swear I saw a few flakes while I was there (probably just wishful thinking, says my sister.)
On the way home I went by my favorite little seafood place...it's usually so crowded you can hardly find a place to park...no one was there, I almost thought it was closed. I really expected it to be mobbed since this is a holiday weekend.
Most of the roadside stands I passed had pumpkins already (just a few, but pumpkins no less). The neighbor's mums they planted yesterday in the heat had a light frost on them this morning. A corn field where they were picking yesterday looks like it also got a frost.
I had my windows open last night too. I got cold in the middle of the night and closed some of them. They got opened again first thing this morning to let the cool, crisp, fresh air in. Tonight seems like it is going to be even cooler. I'm lovin' it!
As soon as I can I am taking my boots to have work done on them, this won't be for a little while because I am having minor surgery on my foot this Wednesday. The skis are out...I've been looking at them and wishing they could do more than just stand in a corner. The hill is being cut at the little local area, this is planned as a first cut with another to come mid-October...I hope there is snow on the hill by then (though highly unlikely this far south).
Bring on the cold weather, crank up mother nature's snow machines...I am raring to go!
