Still hot down here but the weatherman says around this weekend and by next Monday, we'll be down to where we're supposed to be.

Low 80's and low humidity. Dipping into the 60's at night, too!!!

I'd say it's about two weeks late, but better late than never.

And it could be worse, too.

A few years ago it stayed hot and sticky all the way through November. I remember because the first nice, comfortable day was December 1st.


Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Don't you ever have nice sunny weather?  Is that a Jersey thing? Or just an east coast thing?

Fairly comfortable in the shade, but the sun has been murder.

We went from miserable heat (which I hate) to a cold snap after Hurricane Michael rolled through as a measly tropical storm (nasty, down in The Swamp), only killing 5, but was still manageable since I COULD still get a beer, to a COLD SNAP (which I love), and just happened to run into somebody's 1 year-old bag of Flu. I feel like unmitigated crap and want to simply die in my sleep right now...but not before someone goes out and grabs an ol'wolf a few beers, please & thank you.Big smileWink

This week and at least through the next weekend is perfect weather. Not common for October but I will certainly accept it. 100% clear skies. That means somewhat chilly early morning temperatures. 5AM was 37F. After sunrise it was increasing to 60F by noon and currently 4PM Pacific Daylight Time 74F and 18% humidity with a 5mph breeze. It is forecast to be similar through next weekend. Of course it can't last forever and we will suffer through the months of very depressing weather.

It was a cold sum-bitch this morning, I saw a low of 28.  I wasn't ready to give up on my old leaf blower.

One of my troubleshooting techniques to determine if there is a lack of fuel flow or no spark. I use a little starting fluid. I only went as far as changing the spark plug, last year.  It still runs! There is still a fuel problem but I may be able to fix it.  These small engines have carbs. that are layers of tiny passages and gaskets that actually close valves when it's working right. These gaskets get brittle with time and heat and it makes it difficult to take apart without damaging something.

Do you like leaves? How about squirrels?  They taste just like chicken.

It's supposed to FINALLY drop to a "cool" 87° down here this weekend. Possibly into the 60's overnight. Most importantly, the humidity is supposed to be very low, so it should be comfortable for a change.

I'm hoping and praying this marks the beginning of actual fall weather.

Or at least what passes for "fall weather" around here.

42 degrees, windy.  It's cold, people!  I did load my tools into a bucket and drove the tractor out to the irrigation pump. The suction line is a 2 inch PVC pipe about 12 feet long.  I forgot to take the duct tape out there. I tape up the pipe on the pump so critters don't nest in there. 

Disconnected the garden hose from the spigot.

Kinda makes ya feel helpless.

Heard reports that they might get hit with 175 mph winds.

Could be the strongest storm to hit the US in history.

I am so thankful it didn't hook to the right and come across this way.

This could turn out bad for a lot of people.

^ They were calling it a Cat 4 storm this morning. 375,000 evacuated.  Good luck to those people.

It's still warm here but raining. I'm having trouble keeping the house cool, the nasty crap in the air is making my sinuses ache.  I need to drain the irrigation pump and clean the chimney flue tomorrow.  I'll restart the pilot light in the fireplace in our bedroom. Like the TV in the living room, the pilot lite is enough to warm the room a little bit.

Looks like we're about to catch a glancing blow from Michael...



Hope that's all it is.

Still hot and dry down here.

Supposed to dip down to a chilly 90° today, from the slightly more toasty 93° and up that it has been.

Nothing like the chance of some severe weather to get me motivated.



I need to winterize the boat. There are 2 drains on the engine block, 2 more on the exhaust manifolds.
There's also 4 hoses on the front of the engine that I disconnect and drain. I'll run the shop vac on the floor if I feel up to it. I put a tarp on it within the next week or so.

Since I've already got the ladder out, and this needs to be done before I put the boat in it's resting place, I'll clean that gutter on that side of the garage.

Looks kinda like Portulaca.  A little research points to Portulaca Grandiflora Sundial.

If you could take a more close up picture of the blooms and the leaves, we might be able to to figure out what it is.

If worse comes to worse, I could email the pictures to our local University of Florida Agricultural Extension where they have one of the best plant experts anywhere. They'll gladly tell me what it is.

Too bad because of where they're growing you can't transplant them into a pot.

Maybe clip the blooms, strip some of the leaves off of the bottom half of the stems, then put them in a vase of water?
