We have finally had some rain yippie and a bit of a cool down but it will be back in the nineties  next week but at least I don't think it will be in the hundreds for awhile but who knows for sure out here. Mold can sure be nasty to some folk but not be a bother to others. That good earthy smell of compost is mostly the smell of molds and other fungus at work breading down organic matter. In the winter around here  after a rain things get these little black spots on them and that is just a mold starting to bread down the dead organic material and it sure plays havoc with folks. My oldest son sure has problems with the stuff that breaks down Bermuda grass but it doesn't phase me in the least. He has been better since we moved to the boondocks.

It's supposed to start raining here for the next several days.
Ought to be interesting to see how the leak behaves under several days of rain.  Thankfully my table has been moved the few inches to keep a new lake from forming.  However that doesn't mean that the carpeting under my table is safe...All depends on how heavily it rains and how fast the leak becomes.  My Sister hasn't had a chance to go crawling around on the roof yet...

Farmington, New York.  With all the snow it must get darn cold?  Can't stand the snow and cold much any more.  I am looking for a nice rural area in the northwest with perpetual 75 degree weather, year around.
Haven't found it yet.
How is the lake business?  Better, worse or the same?

Cold?  Yeah like -10F in the winter.  We see that sometimes in January or February.  I'm in zone 6a where I am.  Around me we have microclimates ranging from 5a, 5b, to 6b.  Due to this the nursery I work at tries to sell stock that is hardy to zone 4 or 5.  We have the benefit of having wonderful neighbors - one drives a plow part-time in the winter and the other has a plow on his ATV.  They come down and plow out our 70ft driveway regularly because they realized that Mom and I would be the ones out there in -10F shoveling it clean because Dad can't help due to his physical limitations.  70 feet with a turnaround is a heck of a lot of driveway to be shoveling.  I think last year Mom and I only had to go out and shovel twice - and even then we would only get part of it done and they would just appear with the plow and motion us out of the way.

It's pouring outside on and off today (Fall rains), but I haven't been downstairs yet today to check on the lake yet...   hide

 omg

-10  Once in ten years it might get that here but it doesn't last.  I would be froze up for sure.

I wonder how my SS knees are going to hold up in the cold.  Maybe I can get them warm then wrap them up and the steel will act like a thermos does...holds in the heat.

TOG,
I checked on the lake earlier between making chili and baking cornbread.  Yeah it's there, just thankfully not on my bench!  It's on the concrete floor.  

As for your knees - well, I have several family friends who have had knee replacements - how they feel come winter all depends on how they take care of themselves.  One constantly complains about hurting and aching, but she never gets off her butt and MOVES around.  The other seems to be moving around like they had never had a need for surgery and they do circles around folks younger than them.  It's all about attitude.  If you do your exercises like the doc says and keep yourself moving, and you keep positive, you'll do fine through winter.  yes

Good, you're all set then.  We have a local mall that opens it doors at 6AM for "mall walkers" who use the mall in all weather to walk and get exercise.

So my sister got up on the roof this past weekend and she caulked the leaky area - or what she felt might be leaking to see if that stopped the leak.  Now we wait for rain to see if it worked...
