The End —-Tuesday, October 8, 2019

This morning we finished up all the irrigation on the farm.

All the pastures are wet, all the alfalfa fields, and my lawn

I got all my hose picked up and stored for that long winter season

I cleaned out the woodstove and readied the kindling and logs for that time when neither Terry or I can’t handle the cold house anymore

A major winter blast is heading our way.ย  The weather people say Thursday the daily high will be 49* —Winter is coming, just on the edge of sight. Floating in the jet stream ready to develop into reality.

Forcing us to wave warm lovely days farewell.

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. All looking good for you.
    You two are great workaholics………..true people of the land.

    Bushfires season has started early here and it is NOT looking good.
    Why can’t it ever seem to rain where it is so badly needed?



  2. We are still in the 80s and sometimes 90s here. I wish I could send you some of this warmth to store for when you need it. Seems that fall is coming to us unwillingly this year.
