We were only a touch colder at -3 Celsius last night. It's supposed to snow a touch again tonight.

Oh my Lord. When I read stuff like that in October it makes me glad that I am where I am. Being born in Scotland, I was used to cold, damp, miserable, depressing weather but I just can't handle it any more, my knees start to stiffen up and my arthritis gives me hell.

Nope, I'm still walking around in shorts and T-shirts. It's fall in East Texas and it's one of the most beautiful times of the year anywhere. It just doesn't last long enough but I'll take all of these mid 70s days and low 50s morning that I can get. Beautiful!

I'd rather be here where we have 4 actual seasons. I enjoy winter and all the fresh snow. Just as much as summer. I grow tired of summer though. Fall time means hunting and getting everything ready to tuck away for the cold. Winter means snowmobiles, downhill sledding, snowshoeing, winter bonfires on the lake. Spring and summer means camping, fishing, swimming, and hot sun. Too much heat though and I get cranky. In the winter, I can always put on more clothes. In the summer however, I can only take so many clothes off without scaring people away.

Just a fall time picture showing the weather/season change.

Just a side note, the old ski jump in the picture is the former site of the Nordic games back in the 90s. Somewhere in the snowcat archives is a thread about the old abandoned ski hills around here.

That is pretty.

Around here the leaves change and drop about two days later and they are dropping like crazy right now. It's not often you see a whole tree in full fall colors.

It is beautiful up here. Which is part of the reason I love hunting in the fall. The maple trees were just gorgeous with their red leaves. They were the first to fall last week.

The leaves are almost all fallen now. It's pouring rain today. Good day to stay inside with my heated blanket as it's only +5 Celsius. The forecast actually calls for a light snow tomorrow. A little early as we normally get it by Halloween.

I talk to myself to get an expert opinion.

Just for comparison, these pictures were taken a week apart. Same spot in my backyard.

I should take a walk to one of our many beautiful parks today for some pictures too, Brian. The leaves are at peak colour and just beautiful.

Fall leaf color is over here too. Usually in East Texas fall color doesn't last too long. About three weeks ago I had one oak tree start dropping it's leaves and I thought something was wrong with it. It was just getting an early start. Blowing leaves around here is an all year job but in the fall, especially if the wind is blowing, you have to do it sometimes twice a day. Out in the yard I just let them lay and mulch them with mower.

The weather around here has been brilliant for the past couple of weeks. It got up to the mid 80s yesterday but mainly it's been in the 70s and it's supposed to stay like that for a while longer but with a few showers in the forecast. Long may it continue.

We've been in a weather alert for 2 days. But as we're closer to the great lake, we were spared yesterday when other areas within 2 hrs of us got nailed enough to close the highway due to snow and ice. Even today, it's cold and grey out but no snow.

Everyone freaking out around here because of a frost advisory last night.
Helloooooo, it's October!
It may even snow soon, imagine that?

You mean like this? Of course it won't stay. But it's crunch time to get everything put away for the winter.

I came across this cool picture showing two seasons at the same time on a road only a few miles from my place yesterday.

Northern: I can recall many yrs ago when I was in Sales and had a customer in Calgary and went up there a couple times from my Beverly Hills sales office, and as usual rented cars where I went on sales calls, well I did the first time and when I had to plug the battery in that was when I turned in the car and cabbed it to my customer. Got into cabs that were nice and heated...

I was born in the East U.S. but left there 55 yrs ago for sunny so cal. Can't imagine putting my poor body thru that climate.

In my little time here don't seem to hear of members living in warmer climates... We gotta live somewhere that's for sure.

I can handle summer and winter. Well, I like having 4 distinct seasons as I try to make the most out of each season. Lol. Summer's alright but come September I've had enough of boating sun and sweating my butt off and am ready for cooler fall weather when I get out hunting. About mid November I've had enough of hunting and am ready for snowmobile season. By March, I'm bored of that and get the itch to go camping again and boating etc.

I couldn't handle sweating my butt off for 12 months of the year.
