    Its been a beautiful weekend here in my part of North Carolina, very low 80s temps, low humidity, no rain, partly cloudy skies and a wonderful gentle breeze keeping the fresh air moving about...I couldn't ask for a better weekend for hiking with my loyal canine friend...:)

    It has been cool at night and during the morning hours. Regardless it'll creep up to the mid 90's later in the day.

    Farmers’ Almanac Winter Outlook At A Glance:
    • Colder-than-normal conditions are predicted from the Continental Divide east through the Appalachians.
    • Above-normal snowfall predicted for Great Lakes, Midwest, New England, Pacific Northwest
    • Frigid weather is expected in mid-February, which may also bring blustery and bitter winds, widespread snow showers, especially in zones 1, 2, and 3.
    • Winter will hang on with stormy conditions up through the official start of spring, especially for the East Coast.

    The Almanac also forecasts an unusually snowy and/or wet winter across the Pacific Northwest, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic States; in these regions, the thermometer will be hovering just above or just below the freezing mark, which means some of the precipitation may fall as either ice or rain/freezing rain.

    Mild winter? Nah. It’s going to be cold, so be prepared!

    Above-normal precipitation is also forecast for the Southwest region during December 2018, and for the Southeast in January and February 2019. The rest of the nation will see closer to normal snowfall amounts, although, as the 2019 Farmers’ Almanac suggests, a stormier-than-normal March could push snowfall totals to above normal over the northern and central Rockies and Plains. Good news for skiers and boarders!

    Significant snowfalls are also predicted!

    Mid-March could be stormy virtually coast to coast, bringing snow, sleet, and/or rain as well as strong and gusty winds to many areas. In particular, we are red-flagging March 20–23 for a potent East Coast storm that could deliver a wide variety of wintry precipitation just as we are making the transition from winter to spring. So, no matter what the groundhog says in February, you’ll know winter isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

    (Sounds like last spring, doesn’t it? Speaking of which, find out how the Farmers’ Almanac forecast fared last year.)

    It was probably the coolest day since May. It didn't even reach 90 in the shade. :)

    POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE SEVEN

    New Orleans could receive a direct hit from a tropical storm late Wed. Though it would only be a TS, we've learned in recent years that a TS can sometimes be more dangerous than an actual hurricane. If it's very slow moving, it could drop a lot of rain and cause some dangerous flooding. Hope everything turns out OK!

    The soil here is really poor like cement. Do you add anything to your soil?

    We're dropping temperatures next week, starting this coming Sunday, highs in the mid to low 70s and lows in the low 60s, but they're calling for rain almost every day next week too...

    The forecast called for rain today and we only got a brief drizzle. We haven't had rain in about four months. :(

    Is your region normally drier?...We got more rain this year than average I think...This year is moving faster it seems to me, already October...
