I think when you read this, the temperature will likely have gone in the true direction of ‘Fall’…but right now, just after Thanksgiving, we’re still enjoying the very warm SUMMER STUFF (which is great!)
We all know, however, what is part of the BIG PICTURE. I’ve noticed that boats are starting to disappear from the rivers into storage sheds, and it’s a little sad to see them go into ‘winter retirement’.
As far as the farming community, I find it amazing how much work has been done despite our very wet weather. And for all of us ‘city slickers’, we need to have a heads-up regarding the mud that has been tracked from the fields onto the roads. The harvest also may be causing small animals to be moving around, contributing to the large number of road kill showing up on our highways!
And that brings up the subject of our deer population - also very active at this time of the year and a real danger for us all. At dawn and dusk especially, we should be on the alert for movement on the roads. If you see something that doesn’t look quite right then it probably isn’t, so SLOW DOWN ! And pass this on especially to young drivers.
Now, I’ll repeat myself and remind you of my old neighbour, Toots, and her expression at this time of the year, “FALL IS IN THE AIR!!”
