In an attempt to start blogging again, I have decided to try to write something every day, even if it is just about the weather.

How many people do you know who have said, my grandmother kept a little diary, and every day she wrote about the weather. I've heard it a few times.

So, just for the record, we have had one of the wettest Octobers on record, and it has not hit 70 at any time this month, which is also unusual, I hear. At least it hasn't snowed!!! I also heard on the weather report this morning that we have only had two total hours of sunshine in the last 2 weeks but we are supposed to get some this afternoon. Yippee!

Autumn is my favorite season, and it has still been spectacular in spite of all of the clouds and rain.

Well, there you go! I'm baaaack!
