    Wow... that is strange for sure..... our summer has been pretty mild..except for 1 week of 110 plus heat wave ...after that it has been....in the high 80's low nineties.....when it is suppose to be ...110 degrees or so.... we received a little rain in August... which is strange.... but it felt nice.... :thumb:
    Now... we have a small heat wave of 100 degrees... it is suppose to last for a couple of days then we are back to the 80's again.... The mornings are cool and the days are warm..... so I have to watch the goats just in case.... but they have done well with it so far....
    Aww...Rush loves it there..... and you know it... LOL :laugh: :p

    Keep that four lettered word up there...please :wink:

    With the last winter here...I saw enough of that stuff to last me a few years :greengrin:

    I hate change, I don't do well with anything disrupting my life schedule and now it's totally dark by 7:45....I am the type that hates the shorter days of fall and winter..wake up in the dark, drive to work in the dark and only have 3 hours of daylight to do anything outside when I get off work :( Right now, I can't wait til March gets here because it takes me til after Thanksgiving to adjust my personal schedule once the days grow shorter.

    No snow around me yet but there was snow in Alberta a few days back. Just didn't hit me, THANKFULLY. It's rare to find someone who can related to my -40 winters. On internet forums that is.

    I'll trade you?
    Right now it is 89.0! Hot, very windy and miserable.

    I will be moving to SE Alaska this fall OR early next spring. I'm hoping it will be fall and I can't wait.
    One year in eastern WA we got 9 feet of snow over three months! I still have all my extreme weather gear ... I'll be needing it!:p
