The nights are drawing in

This is what popped into my head when I noticed how the nights are drawing in. And then I was so amused at the idea of Albert as a were-chicken, I had to make it so. (Just because an animal draws a little blood…)

Yeah, ‘scuse the jaggies. I couldn’t be bothered to fire up Photoshop. It wasn’t that funny.

But say, have you noticed how the nights are drawing in…? Have a good weekend, everyone!

What I have noticed is this August has been mostly cold and wet – a sure sign that summer is over. Daily afternoon temps rarely break mid seventies. We might get some pleasant afternoons in September, but summer is over.

And I’m saving that picture. Don’t know why, or why I would ever use it, but I want it, so I’m saving it to disk. Thank you for it.

I wish I’d done a better job now 🙂

I just moved south where the decreasing daylight isn’t nearly as noticeable as it is north of the Mason-Dixon Line. Add to that that I am recently retired and have no idea what day it is so I am blissfully ignorant of the shortening days!

Oh, definitely noticing, and only at 45 lat.

It’s still light enough to mow the lawn at 8PM here (or so my neighbor thinks).

And ‘cold’, ‘wet’? August in Texhell?


Not on your Nelly!

3 months spent watering the lawn and garden (retired, I had to find something to do that appeared useful to Mrs D).
Missed 2 days in August while I was off clearing the land in East Texas and SIZZLE!, all that watering gone for naught.

As a gardener I’ve noticed the change of the angle of the sun more than evening closing in. This month really has been awful in the Central Valley. Last week temps between 103-112 then the coastal mountain range was set afire by a spectacular lightning storm last Sunday and we’ve been under a thick blanket of smoke since Monday last.

The week of triple digit temps literally cooked all my late summer-fall seedlings. *Sigh*

I will be glad to see the backside of 2020 and we haven’t even begun election hell.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
