Once upon a time, there was an author who sorta kinda promised to write a life update post on her blog every week. Then, something happened.
The second week, she forgot about her commitment until the day before.
So she took three pictures and decided that her second life-update post would be much shorter than the first. And she and her readers all lived happily ever after.
LOL, I did forget about this post until yesterday, but I’ll use the weather as an excuse, too. For a couple of days, I was very sleepy and my brain didn’t want to do much of anything.
Speaking of the weather, that’ll do for an update this week.
The rain has gotten ahead of itself
Remember how last week, I told you we’d received six inches of rain in two days? Well, this past week, we got another 1.2 inches. Our average annual rainfall is about fifty inches.
Do you get that? In the span of a week, we got 1/7 of the average annual rain for our area!
But wait! That’s not all!
And then, it got cold.
You want pictures? I’ll give you pictures.
Yesterday morning, November 1, 2019, our son walked out the door and said, “It’s not that bad!”
Uh, see the frost on the grass? Notice what he’s wearing? Or, maybe better said, not wearing?
Now, he did get cold a couple of minutes later, but I had to take this photo because I missed the opportunity yesterday when he was running around outside in 45-degree weather, also in shorts and a short-sleeved shirt.
Next up, a close up of the frosty grass:
The frost on J’s car:
I know, I know: you Northerners (or “Southern” northerners along the east coast) have already been seeing frost, perhaps even snow. But the average first frost for our area – southeast Oklahoma – is November 1, so Jack Frost arrived right on time! It wasn’t hard, just around thirty degrees, but it was cold enough to kill my tomato and pepper plants.
Well, time to practice the guitar for a few minutes while B is outside playing. I’ll try to do better for next week!
