I made it sound worse than it was, but a less resilient man might have complained.

I work with reasonable people, so there is lots of water and rest breaks in the shade, and the pace and expectations were modulated according to the conditions. I was soaked through with sweat but it did it's job and today wasn't that bad. Got the wall finished and only a half hour past our usual end of day target time.

Looks like that day trip to Orlando we had planned for Monday (and took off work for) is not happening, but it may translate to a rare three-day weekend riding out Dorian. I'm at 33324 if you are a weather-tracking geek like m'self.

Shem, Painboy and I have all checked in in the last 24 hours. I don't see that Jake, who was closest, has checked in, so I guess we can assume that Cottage Grove has slipped beneath the waves. ;)

I didn't notice it at all. I'm gonna sleep right through the Big One, I expect.

October 3. Currently 96 degrees outside. Tomorrow's forecast high is 97.

At least the humidity today is only 32 percent, so with the right clothes it's not TOO bad outside.

Woo! Got an Arctic air mass visiting today: currently sunny but only 38 degrees, and tonight's low is supposed to be 23. (I continue to be amused by how in this part of the country, "temperatures will drop low enough for ice to exist in nature" is an actual EMERGENCY requiring "freeze warnings" and the like.)

First snowfall of the season, we got 8" at the homestead Saturday. Anchorage set both a (daily) record high temp of 45F followed by a record snowfall of 8.4".

As with last year, this year's winter has been late in arriving. By now we usually have had a couple of weeks below freezing and at least a couple 2-4" snow events. It wouldn't be such a bad thing except our "wet season" is September through November. This means that our snow pack will be less come springtime which increases the fire danger. Also, cold and wet sucks. I'd rather dry snow at 15F than rain at 40F.
