Well I did not grow up in tornado alley, but I spent many an hour on the beach at hurricane parties. Bright, clear (dern it), and it really cooled off - 42, was in the thirties when I went out earlier.

I will try to get some pics of the danged hillbilly cats in a bit.

(Zone 3b)

18*..sunrise at 9:07 (2hours from now), sets: 4:13pm. calm, but not clear; can't see stars overhead.
Rann~the orchid is just beautiful; it sure made me smile to picture your girls as you gave them the ultimatium; ususally works, too:))
MySharona~nice pic, love seeing the everyday places of our DG friends; a nice insight to the area.
Sidney~looks very pretty from here; and hopefully, will survive a few more cold nights.
Music2Keep~~thanks for passing along the hugs/kisses; have a great day;
Dyson~is it light by now? Did you like the long daylight while in Alaska?
The Little Susitna; last year Nov. (looks much the same now).

I live in 'tornado alley", too, here in Arkansas and I'm with sugarweed as far as the answer to the trivia question--it has to be "E"--in a downstairs bathtub with a mattress over you!
I haven't been on this thread in over 24 hours and you all sure leave a lot to catch up on.
Rann: those are gorgeous orchids. I have three orchid plants but none are blooming right now.
Kelli: I think it was you who posted a photo of that pretty Christmas cactus?
kiska: things look pretty frozen up your way :o) glad you live there and not me! LOL
sugarweed: that's amazing that your flowers seem to have survived the cold but we also had a freeze last night and would you believe it --the "wave" petunias look as if it didn't faze them!

Cooler today than it has been. Sun is shining but the wind is blowing slightly. It is 60*F on my backporch but it feels colder than that--must be the wind.

here is a photo of those petunias: only a couple of blooms- nothing spectacular-- but you can see the frost didn't appear to affect them any.

Thanks for the new thread, Sidney! Love your coleus!
Wonderful pics,guys! Seems winter is getting close even here,but no snow yet in Bucharest. It's been raining all day yesterday,but a little bit sunny today. Temps are up,about 46 at noon.

Waves last all winter here. We didn't get but to about 42º.
Incidentally if you wonder how I do 'º'. Here's how. Put the temp number and then '&#',then right after put 186. That will give you the degrees sign.
Sidney

Isabella, MO(Zone 6b)

Thanks for the tip on making the egrees sign, Sidney. It will be interesting to see how long my 'waves' last. This is the first year I have ever had any 'waves'. Maybe they will last all winter here, too, in spite of the cold weather.
Pretty fall foliage, Adina.

Amelia Island, FL(Zone 9a)

Dyson Where are the danged hillbilly cat pics?! LOL!
Kiska Sure looks cold on the Little Sustina! I cant wait to meet you and see your area in person!

This is the first freeze warning my area has been under. WX is now saying not completely coastal, but Ive pulled in some plants that are tender and wrapped others that are tender, but too heavy to bring in just in case. We have a lot of shade in our yard and on the porches so you just never know if they are going to get it.

I'll keep y'all posted on the temps as the evening progresses. I know I won't be awake when the freeze begins! I will be awake be fore it ends though. I'll post pics if we did get a freeze (of course) LOL!

Good evening everyone. Just now getting to sit and relax. I got home from work at dark and had to run around covering plants, zipping up the greenhouse, etc. We have a predicted low of 30F. Brrrr. Please cross fingers for my little Queen Palm. Last winter it was in a pot, pampered, covered and wrapped with warm lights. This year it's in the ground, having grown about 2 feet over the summer, and I'm letting it fend for itself!

Rann: That's a beautiful orchid!
Joey: I thing the answer is "C" - interior hallway. (Love your fern.)
Sidney: Ahh! Your pretty coleus. SO nice to see them. Mine are pretty much done for after 2 pretty frigid nights last week.
Sharon: Awww! Callie is adorable. I love those pics.

Currently 53. Clear and dry. No wind.
Lousy picture but this is my little Thanksgvg. cactus, getting ready to bloom. Yay!

Well the temp is climbing. We got some frost on the roof although we didn't officially hit 32*. The houses around us all had frosty roofs. I'm glad I woke up early as I forgot to cover my Night Blooming Cereus a/k/a Dutchman's Pipe - so I grabbed a sweater and ran outside to cover it just in time. I would hate to loose that one. Not a year old and I really want it to bloom.

Pretty cactus, Deb. I have never had a red Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus. Mine have all been white.
Kiska, I am going to check out that aurora website right now.

Everybody have a great Saturday!

Georgetown, SC(Zone 8a)

Kiska: That aurora-cam is "way cool". ! :)
Sharon: Our neighbors have frosty roof tops, too. :) It was exactly 32F on my back porch at 730 this morning. Nearby temp tracker says it hit 30. Also very unusual this early in the season for us.
Marsue: That cactus was a gift last Dec. I was told it was a Christmas cactus, but since it's blooming now, I'm calling it a T-giving cactus. :) I hope to take better photos of it as it blooms. :)

Sunny and cool. High 56F.
Overnight low 35F.
Currently BRIGHT! and 53.
No precip in the forecast for the next week. :(

Had a little walkabout. Last night's freeze put the old ki-bosh on the last of the coleus and some of my colocasias. The pansies look quite happy, though. :) The chill has brought the birds back to the feeders finally. I was beginning to think they had lost interest in nuts and seeds and suet!

Deb, that is so sweet! Love the birdfeeder! My Christmas cactus doesn't have any buds yet, it blooms usually on Christmas. I hope this year will bloom more ! Every year I moved it from its place and the buds won't bloom anymore,did you know that?Can't wait to see the pics!
Marsue,thanks, my Christmas Cactus is pink!
Sharon, freeze?! I hope your plants won't suffer too much! Funny pics of Callie!
Sideny,can you please explain again,I did like you said and nothing happened!
Kiska, thanks for the link, wow,that was amasing!
It rained all day and it was dyson dark. Sleet and snow forecasted for tomorrow...ugh!We hoped to get a sunny day to go to our house and see what's going on. Maybe we'll go anyway!

19* and, mostly sunny!!!! sunrise: 9:10; sets: 4:11 loss of 4m59seconds.
It's quite a sight, seeing your frosty roof, MySharona..hope you've saved your plant in time.
Glad you've enjoyed the web site. My grandson is up there for hockey games; they start back this afternoon. about 6 hour drive on a good day.
Adina~Boss looks quite happy to be there. Hopefully you'll get to the house and see how it's coming along.
Deb~nice that the birds have started checking the feeder out again.
Thanks, marsue; it's off to a great start w/sunlight really making the snow bright. Looks like quite a mixed bag of weather for you.
pepper~Thanksgivng day could be a messy one, I'd rather have one or the other.

Adina: Sleet and snow together. Nasty forecast. Ugh, indeed! Hope you get to go see the house anyway. :)

It got up to 60F today, but I still have goose bumps from the 28F last night. I'm already tired of being cold and it's not even Thanksgiving! LOL. I'm in trouble. :)

Adino - love your pictures of "Boss". I raised German Shepherds for our local state police during the 60's and know how faithful and protective they are.

Frost in the south - heard that on TV. Hope you can save some treasured plants. We have had rain most of this week. Today was overcast and grey, less wind and really not too bad. It is full moon tonight but we are thoroughly overcast at about 41 degrees. Snow Flurries forecast for tonight into tomorrow morning.
Debi, love your picture of the bird feeder and birdies. I have a thistle feeder up and the goldfinches have just found it. The young immature ones ( brown) have to practice hanging upside down to feed. I can't hang feeders for the other birds yet as there are too many starlings here yet. They will soon leave.
Our foliage is just past peak - with many blazing golden maples still hanging on.

Hoping for good weather for all to travel if you must to join friends and family.

KC Metro area, MO(Zone 6a)

Got into the high 60s today with only a mild breeze. A very nice day all around.

Springboro, PA(Zone 5a)

It's been spitting snow here off and on over the past few days. I'm not liking it very much!

Nice photos everyone! I especially like the "warm" ones.

Sunrise: 6:45 am

It is overcast and grey here and a little chilly although I can't complain too much since things are supposed to warm up as the day progresses.


Kelli: those photos of the Gardens are lovely
Adina: I love your "Boss". German Shepherds are such beautiful animals. They are loyal and true pets. How is your house progressing?
Deb, I love that "Warm" yellow flower. Is that a black-eyed Susan?
Good leaf photos, E_B
se_eds: our foliage has pretty much faded, too. Seems like it lasted only 2 or 3 days. Our blowing rain storm sent most of the leaves flying the other day. I haven't seen any goldfinches at my thistle feeder yet. Maybe they are still hanging around in your yard! I am sure a flock of them will come through in the next 2 or 3 weeks. We had about a dozen or more robins in our back yard this morning--looking for the worm that the "early bird" catches! LOL Also had a pair of cardinals and some mourning doves but the cardinals and doves are "regulars". They aren't just passing through on their way south.
kiska: I took a look at the aurora website. It is amazing but I am sure it is even more spectacular when viewed "in person" rather than on the web cam.
DH and I spent all day Saturday planting out our two new flowerbeds with plants that we purchased at KMart for 75% off!. We bought two flowering plum trees for just $8.75 each and they were in 7 gallon buckets and were each about 8-10 feet tall. Then we bought a tray of yellow mums in 4 inch pots for just 25 cents each. You would have thought we won the lottery! LOL
Everybody have a great day!

Georgetown, SC(Zone 8a)

Se_eds: I had the same thought as Marsue. Not a single goldfinch has shown up at my thistle feeder yet. They must all still be up there with you. :) Guess they'll make their was south, eventually.
Marsue: It is some kind of Bl. Eyed Susan; don't know exactly which one, tho.
E_B: Lovely colors. The ground looks a touch icy in that first one.

Back to 'indian summer" again. Got up to 68F today.
Right now, 64.
Tonight
Mostly cloudy. Lows in the mid 40s. West winds around 5 mph this evening...becoming light and variable.
Monday
Mostly cloudy in the morning...then clearing. Highs in the upper 70s. Southwest winds around 5 mph...becoming south around 5 mph in the afternoon.
No rain in the forecast ffor at least the next 5 days.

Millersburg, PA(Zone 6b)

Deb - 86 deg??? WOW. The greater proportion of finches don't leave until the snows come as they have many flower and weed seeds to eat.

Temp 42 this AM, overcast and grey all day. Rain starting about noon time changed to snow by about 2 PM. We now have about an inch on the ground and it is coming down steadily. Temp is currently 32 and the road crews are spraying antiskid.

Deb, gonna send this participation down to you - hope it melts on the way. LOL

Nice day here for the most part. High 50s, mild breeze. Gonna get cold here in a few days. Then supposedly rain, possibly snow by thanksgiving.

Springboro, PA(Zone 5a)

It's a chilly 33 and Dyson Dark here. We might get a bit of sunshine tomorrow and temps in the 50's midweek before falling back into the 40's by Thanksgiving day.

marsue..........I bought a bunch of roses at 75% off the other day. I got red carpet roses and
some Knockout roses as well as a huge pot that was marked down to $10 from $70.

Photo..........Local late fall colors. Note the buck standing at the edge of the woods.
