Hard rain and brisk wind at the end of last week caused a drastic change overnight. It knocked our watercolor of fall fantasia to the ground.

Most of the trees have lost their leaves already, and the glorious colors of autumn are now a thing of the past. There are some few exceptions to the rule and their fiery color really stands out against the stark background.

There was a dusting of snow in the mountains over the weekend, but our temperatures here stayed above the freezing mark.

The forecast for the next week calls for seasonable weather, with no frost or snow. I think we will see a freezing morning before Halloween.

The new Gino’s/Tudor’s being constructed in the old town parking lot is coming along nicely. There should be a grand opening before the end of the year. I look forward to a steaming hot biscuit with a sausage patty and fried egg in the middle.

All of the forest critters must be moving about at night, and they must not be paying much attention, since it seems there are quite a few of them littering the highways each morning.

I really won’t miss the opossums much, but I hate to see the little tree rats (squirrels) lying dead along the road. Oh, well, the dead squirrels disappear rather quickly since they are the perfect size for raptors to stick their talons in for a quick trip to the nest.
