Yay ... Hurrah .... !!
Fall is finally here!
After a high of 90 degrees yesterday, I just woke up and it is only 59 outside right now! I am so excited .... It is cool and thought I could shut the windows and doors but I'm not going to because I LOVE THIS!
It's probably as hard for some of you to understand as it is for me to understand snow, but it's NICE to be able to wear socks and sweats for a couple of months of the year - it will only get into the high 70's today. Sort of overcast right now .... makes me feel like singing!
See? We do have a change of season's ... just takes a little longer!
BTW, any of you that are planning trips, or living in AZ and NV right now - I know that it must be awesome there right now ... this is when those areas steal the spotlight across the nation. I love those warm days and COLD nights when you wake up and everything is sparkly. I bet the Snow Birds are already on their way.

We have a alaska storm headed our way whens gusting over 40 miles per hour possible rain snow in mountains and it will get down in the high 30's the next 2 days with a high in the 50's. I hate to tell you midwesterns this bad news but it will all come your way and I suppose this will be one you wont like very much. Will only have 2 days then back up to high 70's and low 80's.

You have it all and we're on water rationing ... We can only water our lawns every other day, and many people are letting their yards die and replacing the green landscaping with rock and stuff that don't need watering because the water prices are getting ridiculous. Yes, even during the winter we have to water our yards. It is very depressing because as much as I like visiting AZ I don't want CA to start looking like it.

We did not shut the doors last night and when I got up it was 61 in the house. It felt wonderful - gooooooood sleeping weather.
You know, you all must think I'm nuts, but since your lifestyles are so different from mine, I love reading about what it's like. Because I think to a degree that we live our lives around the elements.
Have you guys had to "winterize" the XLR's yet?

"...i t might get interesting. The National Weather Service is expecting a moderate to strong offshore event. It should be called a Santa Ana, although many people won't think of it as such because it probably won't be warm.
But forecaster Steve Vanderburg said it could be the strongest Santa Ana of the season, depending on how everything plays out. And before the wind comes, there might even be some rain in it for us, although that's more of a longshot. The one thing we can count on is, it will be cooler.
This is when San Diego gets the winds, this is our fire season, and those winds drive them. October HERE always has these winds. A few years back we were evacuated from our home because of the fires, and 2 years ago we had one that got my cousin's house - and sometimes the wind comes it's colder and sometimes it's hot winds.
I don't know about the winds that blow through where you guys are - you're pretty far from us. Today the winds kicked up dust and sand, all the way from Modesto down to Yuma - I even heard that some of the driver's were describing the condition as looking like fog it was so thick.
Anyway, since nothing lasts for more than 2 days in a row here, at least we have been enjoying the cooler weather!
