    Woke up this morning, 41 degrees out. There's a couple of Sugar Maples that have already started changing leaves around here.

    If you haven't started saving your money to help get through the winter, you'd better get a move on, another 2 months and it can be snowing anytime here in MN.

    Just thought I'd give some people a wake up call, maybe a little motivation for those of us that have hit that proverbial wall the last couple of weeks from working every day for the last 2-3-4-5 months.

    Just a couple of more, and it's sit around and watch the snowfall time.

    Yeah really... we could blend some of that 41 degree air half-n-half with our air and it would still be friggin hot!!!

    We've had a pretty miserable summer here in the east too. We've had mini-monsoons, mini-droughts and a whole lot of hazy, hot and humid. I know it gets a little hotter in the south but it doesn't get nearly as cold there as it does here. We can expect temps anywhere from 100+ in the summer to -5 in the winter.

    I think we've settled into the end of summer though. There are no more 90+ days in the 15 day forecast and the lows are finally going to go below 70.

    We call it white gold and there is a huge load of money in it. However you have to wake up early to go take care of it.
