Well temperatures have dropped here in this small town of Port Loring. But its the sign of whats to come. Old wood furnace is still perkin away and sure feels good when you come in from outside. Nothing like wood heat to take the chill out of ones bones. I should mention here that our weather station is down for a wee bit as my son is working on it. Should be back up and running come the weekend or shortly after. At any rate the weather today is sunny with a few clouds. Winds up to 30MPH Gusts. NW winds. Barometer 29.15 and rising. Weather Forecast, Sunny with a few clouds. Outside temperatures at noon is 41 Degrees with humidity at 40%. Talk Later.
Well another pretty nice day here just a bit windy. Winds are from the South around 10 to 30 MPH so enough wind to blow a fellows hat off once and awhile. Lots of sunshine today but they say temperatures are going to drop over night. High today was around 61 degrees. Had the old wood furnace perkin away here this morning but kind of let it die out this afternoon. So might be a pretty nice night for the trick-er treaters. We don’t get to many up here in this area as there isn’t that many young ones. I think the most we have had since we moved here would be around ten. So we don’t have to spend to much on goodies. I did managed to clean up the last of my leaves today and put them in the garden. Once done I got out the tiller and worked them in so the wind didn’t blow them away on me. Can’t get anything better for a vegetable gardens than dry leaves. Talk Later
Well had a nice day here for a change. Sun was shinning for most the day. Temperatures were a bit cool though, but did get up to around 49 degrees after a frost early this morning when I got up. Winds were out of the west, light. This afternoon I took advantage of the good weather and cleaned the chimney in the house and outside. Then cleaned the eve troughs and took off the one out back, as in some cases it stops leaks in the house through out the winter, when ice backs up the water. Tried it last year and problem solved, so guess now its a yearly thing before it gets to cold. I also piled up some firewood I had laying around out back, so not a bad day all and all. Talk Soon.
Well sun is just a shinning for a change. Cold though, as temperatures got down to around 28 last night with a white frost to wake up to. Good for sleeping though. Winds are out of the NW light. Also calling for sunshine for tomorrow so might get to doing some outside work. Got the old wood furnace going all day, put in a few pieces of Ash this morning to get the house warmed up. Sure can tell the difference when you put a piece of that in. One thing about living here in the country in the middle of no where it sure looks pretty. I just can’t seem to get enough of it. Talk soon.
Yep you guessed it. Rained here all day again. Oh well had a dry summer so the old trees and thing needs to store up for winter. Reason for everything they say. Temperatures got up to 45 today with winds out of the NW, light. I had about four cords of white oak that I got from a good friend a couple years ago so put it in the basement for winter. I don’t know about that stuff as it just wouldn’t burn. It was dry enough but just wouldn’t burn. After burning firewood for heat for over fifty years never had such a thing. So I came up with a plan today. Went out to the wood shed and brought in my splitting ax and went to work. Managed to split the whole four cords so I got to tell you there should be no problem now with burning it. Should be good enough for kindling, just kindin. On another note the leaves off all the hardwoods have pretty well had their day. Sure was pretty this Fall taking them all in. One thing about up here we have about two scenes to take in. First the Maples come on with all their splendor, then the white birch and tamarack start loosing their leaves and needles. I just can’t seem to get enough of it. Talk Later.
