As We Again Begin Thinking About Snow Removal

While I was just taking notice of the recent uptick in posts in this forum it suddenly struck me that, yes, it is September. This is the time when some of us begin to dust off the memories of winters past, realizing that this upcoming winter is not too far off on the horizon anymore.

And I do remember a few freak snowstorms in October. The real heavy kind.

I'm hoping that winter forgets to come here this year.

My "honey-do list" is so long it has chapters.

Re: As We Again Begin Thinking About Snow Removal

I am still waiting on the dry season to come so some earth work could be done without digging in constraint mud. Our fall monsoon season will be soon upon us and then the cold of winter.

Really! I spent it at a job 45 mins away being so hot and sweaty that by the time I got home I had no energy to do anything.

Re: As We Again Begin Thinking About Snow Removal

Summer has been 1) cold and wet 2) dry some heat 3) hot. It is now turning cooler day by day. Only 70 here at noon. Will see some hot days yet, but fewer and far between.

My lawn, which I don't water, is green as if were early May. Couple of Buckeye trees already turning brown and dropping some leaves. Sunday, I saw a couple sugar maples with tinges of yellow and orange on top. Its not because of drought. Corn is yellowing too but that is more due to variety than weather.

Suspect that much of summer heat may be past now. Fall is the best season IMHO.
