Hi all ; Monday morning aug, 27. Last night I built our first fire of the season... This morning I built another. Two weeks ago or less it was in the upper 90's and we had fans running all day. Night time temps in the 68-70...
It was 58 early last night and its 48 and rain this morning. The weather wizards are saying 38 tonight ! (they do lie though) I guess fall has arrived! After all it is September 1st this Saturday and hunting season opens up the following week . By the end of September the mountains will be glistening white on top and the front yard may look that way as well.
I LOVE MONTANA!!!
I hope we have a somewhat normal fall/winter this year. Considering we've been in a drought for the last 7 years minus 1 normal year, maybe I should hope for a wetter/cooler than normal fall and winter! Last winter I was running the AC most of December, it was 94 on Christmas day! Rain would be nice too, still under 3 inches total in the last 18 months. Visiting NE Washington and Montana in 5 weeks will certainly be a nice change of scenery!
I'm not quite a lumberjack, but that's OK, I sleep all night and I dream all day; I'll coppice trees, I'll grow my food, and compost poo and pee! With a well and off-grid solar, it's a permies life for me! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FshU58nI0Ts
I am sooo ready! With the record rainfall here this summer the blood sucking insects are in record numbers as well. To go outside to do anything useful requires long pants, sleeves, hat, something covering the back of my neck, bug repellent... And the 90*s will be here for another 3-4 weeks. Poor goats, chickens and horse. At least they have fur an feather to help a little. The goat udders are a prime target. But... Alas, it'll likely be late oct before the cooler temps make a difference. An early winter would be welcome here...
It is an experimental device that will make my mind that most powerful force on earth! More powerful than this tiny ad!
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
