Rained off and on all day yesterday, rained all night, still raining. It's 46 , rain for today with a high of 54. YUK! Making a pumpkin pie and a old fashion chocolate pie and going to my brothers for the day. :)
so glad I put the heat switch on before going to bed last night.. it's 34 out there now.. when we have parties I have to open the windows even when it's cool out.. the house heats up quick with the stove, sterno trays, and too many bodies.. so it was warm in here last night.. wow is it chilly out there now!!.. fired up the wood stove now... going to 57.. looks like a nice fall day
Today was the first morning in many months that I felt cold on my morning walk...it was drizzling & raw...stopped raining now, but still overcast & nasty...supposed to have a freeze tonight as temps go down into the 20s...
Tough when trees come down. It is 40° at the moment so perhaps it won't freeze. We have a tall ridge between us & the ocean, but that doesn't stop air, so perhaps it won't be as cold as predicted. We are 5 or so miles away.
We had an overnight low of 30 F but the coleus are hanging on! Still only 39. We created a cold frame from storm windows for the pots of southern magnolia and hibiscus. Citrus trees are happy indoors. The camellias got their shrub hats last night. It will be odd to see their blooms underneath all the protection.
We got a little bounce back in temperatures along with more rain. Yesterday's high was 56F, overnight low 36 and its now about 50. I'm digging beds and fortifying them for some special peonies--garden treasure, prairie charm among others. It's a race against time since working in the cold isn't really much fun anymore. Coleus in exposed areas look like they can be dug any time now.
My son called me a few minutes after the earthquake happened, & said he felt it...nothing here, but the paper this morning said NW CT did feel it...must be on a different subsoil...nippy walk this morning, the temp was 35...had a heavy frost during the night...

before the vultures cleared out the store.. I snuck in there for a few things.. we are good now.. Randy is going to fill the gas can on Sat in case we need the generator.. it's good we don't need flashlights with all these battery operated lights.. and we loaded up on batteries weeks ago.. all good!!
Around here odds seem to be 50/50 of a direct hit somewhere between Norfolk, VA and south NJ.
Major power outages across a huge area could effect elections. Early voting in Maryland begins tomorrow but Virginia (one of those swing states) does not have early voting. Neither state nor DC have good storm outage recovery records!
