Winter's Coming

It rained most of the day today, and by tomorrow our Indian Summer will be over ...  I've heard we could get as much as 4 to 6 inches of snow in the next couple of days.

Of course you seem to get it so much worse than we do, but I'm prying ti holds off for another few weeks. I have to take Cortney to and from the city all next week for job training and surely don't wish to do so on bad roads, remember I'm a HUGE chicken of icy roads*wink*

We've been burning our wood stove in the evenings to ward of the evening chill and tonights low is forecasted to be 30F. I hope the hoophouse crops will fair well.
The funny thing is we're still canning tomatoes and have kraut to make as well as pickled purple cabbage :o)
Blessings,
Kelle

That photo from March '10 makes me feel...like whining. It's rained all day today, too, and I heard the forecast is worse to the north and east (I'm in south central ND). Really enjoyed the hoop house photos; imagine that-- something can be grown in North Dakota after October besides snow banks!
Take care while doing all those chores!
