The Wednesday rainout, and half-day rainout on Thursday really hurt. Despite all the forecasts, and even the green blobs on the radar, I did pretty well today. I encountered some light sprinkles a couple of times, but was able to work through until late this afternoon.

I think most of the regular schedules have now been replaced by "when can I get there next?"

Perhaps it is time to put away the work shorts for the season. The damp and cold today brought out some clothes that have not been worn since early Spring.
You're absolutely right Roger, growing like crazy and leaves are falling by the heaps, make the money while we can and hope that the weather cooperates!
