A change in the weather

We're expecting our run of dry and warm weather to end this evening with une nouvelle perturbation (a new weather system) moving in from the North Atlantic. They are telling us to expect a serious drop in temperatures along with some rain. Brrr. It's that time of year.

Our little hamlet on a recent foggy morning, seen from the vineyard.

Happily, it's way too early for temperatures to approach freezing and they are, in fact, expected to rise again in the coming week. October is when we normally see the fall weather build in. Our fire wood delivery is supposed to happen next week, so I'll have to get busy sawing logs. The guy who does our hedge trimming is coming soon as well. I've asked him to give me an estimate on pruning two of our apple trees. They've gotten too big and I can't prune them myself. Then there's the chimney sweep; we're expecting him sometime in the coming week. It sure feels like fall.


  1. Bet you're glad the guy who does the hedge trimming
    isn't you anymore.

  2. I am intrigued about the chimney sweep fellow. The only ones I know of sang and danced in "Mary Poppins" and generally made a mess of things.

  3. Wow, this is what it looked like here for the past two days... foggy, grey clouds, misty, cooooool. Today: sunny, crisp, cool ... oh boy!

  4. Beautiful Walt. All the changes of season, beautiful. Even the winter (as long as it's not too long.)

  5. The landscape is very different from mine city one. And I am jealous of it.


Tell me what you think!
