So I thought maybe we could start it again here (unless it hasnt been posted somewhere).
How is the weather at Your place today?
At my place, it is mostly a cloudy day with showers... rain was falling all the morning.
Temperature is about 22 C, while yesterday was even under the 20 C. Yep, the autumn is here (which is only one step before winter season and of course the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year).

Heavens no. The last four days of the cruise were spent at sea -- they canceled our stop to Bermuda because of Florence and we were tossed about on the water endlessly. No sleep whatsoever. On Tuesday we left the ship at 8am and didn't get home until after 11pm our time. The next day I took off for Denver and didn't get home until late last night.
I went walking this morning when it was only 77º, but it has gone up to 87º or so now. It was exciting to here that you saw snow, Jeff. It's an unusual week when you dodge a hurricane and see snow. Makes for better stories later. Dvdguy, your greatest pleasure the first year is going to be calling your friends and family and telling them that you're wearing a t-shirt and shorts at Christmas.

I hadn't even thought of that, Sheep. It has been a long, long week.
But most exciting for me was this afternoon. I live at the base of the Wasatch mountains -- they tower about 10,000 feet above my back yard. And they got dusted very nicely last night. Best of all though came this afternoon when we had SNOW in our front yard -- can't remember the last time we had September snow. The kids ran out and tried to scoop up the slopy gunk from the driveway...they weren't really snowballs but it all certainly set the mood. We had a fire in the fireplace and everything.
