More fool me

Or autumn, or something.

We are at least having cold temperatures overnight! Daytimes have been consistently dry and warm (into the 50s quite frequently). It’s fantastic weather for walking! Not so good for the flora, alas.

What has me so perplexed is that last August the squirrels and jays were acting like the winter would be very harsh. They went insane over peanuts 6 weeks earlier than they usually do (see, after so many years here I have an idea of when the jays in particular go crazy for peanuts). I was sure we’d be facing very low temperatures and frequent snow, starting late October. It has happened in the past! 

More fool me. If we’re going to have a wintery winter this year, it is still out there looking for directions to New Mexico.
