WELCOME OCTOBER

It’s hard to believe that October is already here, what happened to September?

This mornings walk was with the threat of rain but I made 4 1/2 miles without a drop. Along the way I saw a number of things that look like October. But first I want to share a couple of things that caught my eye.

This is our nemesis, the feared Raccoon! Well actually it’s our fish that fear the Raccoon’s. We have a large fish pond with 30 to 40 fish that the Raccoon’s just love to eat. We cover our pond with a net that detours them but they still try and often tear up our net.

With the national, state and city debt so high why are we replacing ADA sidewalk ramps with new ADA sidewalk ramps?

OK, the first real sign of October I saw was at our local Prairie Center grocery store.

Out on the Ebey Prairie I saw a lot more snow on the Olympic Mountains then before. You kind of have to look hard but the snow is about half way down.

Remember all the squash I showed you yesterday? They have been harvested and the field is empty.

The birds are really grouping up on the power lines.

I hope you enjoy the month ahead as I’m sure we will.
