Sorry to have tell you this Freddy but the forecasters are watching another storm - a N'oreasterner - which they feel maybe heading our way long about election day. That doesn't bode well for anyone along the east coast and New England in general. Everyone probably needs to keep an eye on that.
The weather has stabilized here in the Nation's capital region enough that I went ahead and lit the match. The Harman is purring away, producing heat to beat the band. It sure is nice to wake up to a warm house; something not experienced when we run the whole house unit at 68*. This is the first time in many years I remember lighting it before Thanksgiving; typically we are running around in shorts and Ts until DEC. I hope that doesn't mean a colder, wetter winter but we will see.
Not much planned for today, schools are out for teacher workdays Monday and Tuesday so I have a couple of additional days to get whatever projects I discover need attention done. For sure that means raking the leaves and finishing prepping the yard for the cold weather. The bees are all inside and the only evidence of life there is if you walking around it you can hear the constant hum of their wings as they work to keep themselves and the brood warm. They are going through amazing amounts of food storage so I'll have to check and supplement that as needed throughout the winter.
DK and I are going to go to the Romney Rally over in Fairfax on Monday afternoon. We have passes, no cost, but they have to make the fire marshall happy concerning occupancy numbers. Looking at the numbers of overflow at recent Romney rallys, having a ticket doesn't seem to stop anyone from coming if they want to. If you see any pictures of that rally, look for me. I'll be the one with the Ronald Reagan ballcamp and Romney sticker.
It should be interesting.
That’s it from here, take care, be warm and have a great weekend, Lisa
