LOL! We were supposed to get light drizzle, and this the first morning the fog wasn't dripping off everything in the past few weeks. Mother nature laughs at those computer models. The cooler weather has been great though!

I hope that everyone else has the kind of morning we have today...simply beautiful fresh Fall day...warm, blue sky, clean. I may just sit and watch it all today....sad that I'm usually outside to hear, then see the flocks of geese when they fly over, honking...and yesterday it was rainy...so I missed what was posted locally as "what must have been a thousand geese, their flock easily covering a couple of miles" of sky' passing over, honking....sigh...damn.

It's hard to find much joy lately, what with fires, politics, the Virus, unemployment....well, everyone had been really praying for Rain...and we got it...the day of our annual antique car show....sigh...

Too wet to want to work outside, maybe just go sit and look at the ocean...and plan...good day for planning things...lol..

Enthralled with this clump of 'shrooms....I have a friend who's a wonderful artist and loves nature, so I've taken a bunch of shots of this one in case she's doing any 'shrooms right now....

We got about 1 1/3" of rain on Saturday...one of our local 'birders' posted a pic of, I think it was, a Yellow Eyed Junco, someone else posted that they usually appear at the start of our rainy season, it was posted today that our 'fire season' is over, though prevention is an all the time thing, also posted that we will have a La Nina year, WET...given all of that, I am optimistically going to remove the cat crate from the Cherokee tomorrow..kinda in the way...lol..

Glad you found something to be positive about...if you believe it. Also glad you still have electricity! First thing I saw when I logged on this morning was how many thousands would be without it, due to Edison's lack of maintenance...again.

We're lucky in that PG&E's territory only extends to Eureka, 85 miles south of us and we are not affected by their power shut-downs....we've managed here for 7 years without a generator, but thinking we should get one now maybe....with the well, we can't be without power for long....

Nice and cool early mornings, not a drop of rain here. For this year, I have decided no Halloween decors, so if any kids do decide to dress up by then, they will not visit our home. Just not safe for them to do that activity.

I do see pumpkin patches are open is some nearby farms, so I hope they just take advantage of outdoor fun there if they can.

I'm with you, Tarev! I don't decorate, but always have welcomed trick or treaters. Not this year.

Been doing some online shopping for a new air purifier, just to augment the smaller air purifiers we have around the house.

No power outages or rain here, had some light drizzle but that was it. Hot today at 93 right now and about the same the next two days so no gardening for me until we are back in the 70's next week.

Too funny !
When I was mowing the grass this week I took the grass catcher off the mower, set it down and put the mower back in the shed. Walked back, picked up the grass bag and was stunned at how heavy it was...only to find my cat hiding in there and looking at me like "Do you mind ? I'm relaxing !"

lol...I don't think we will get it right here, inland maybe, but it means I have to be prepared....I always check Wunderground, but hadn't...that came in as a heads up from what's his face with Curry/Del Norte local blah blah...Paul? is that his name? I have been ignoring getting a lot of the potted nursery stuff in the Pen ready for coming Winter and he got my attention.....Bex has been cleaning her greenhouse and getting stuff in and I've been kinda past yard time and wanting to get some inside stuff done...
