    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    Living near Columbia I have already switch to snow denial mode in a feeble attempt to reduce the severity of the inevitable let down. Heck one year it snowed west of me then east along the coast. Felt like I was living in a weather related practical joke. The emotional toll (and resulting liquor expenditures) for every missed snow chance was more than a little frustrating.

    1.23” in the old rain gauge this morning. A small thunderstorm rolled over us last night and we got lucky.

    Well I am going to get fly fishing lessons Sunday at Davidson River Outfitters. Yeah it’s gonna be rough for fishing but what the hell. I have two teenaged boys who are going to learn the basics with me. Hey a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

    Well we had a very brief shower here in Chapin SC. I been seeing dust devils lately with it being so darn dry so even a little is appreciated. Of course I am going to Brevard this Sunday to fish on the Davidson River, I hope it's not a wash out. I will fish in the rain so long as its not a thunderstorm.

    As much as I am rooting for this to be true. this sounds a lot like our winter discussion of pattern changing snow in the long range kind of thing. I have given up on my lawn (weed patch) and just trying to keep the gardens from getting baked alive.

    Ok “Charlie Brown Football” is going into my lexicon of dadisms I now need to say.

    After a series of winter storms giving us rounds of -> high hopes ->crushing disappointment -> repeat. I am not buying into anything more than 100 hours out and hell this time of year 72 hours is still suspect.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    It would be hilarious if this verified. I will try and schedule a test for all of my classes around that time to get the karma aligned to help make it happen. Hey I am willing to do what I can. We lost days due to the fall hurricane around here, now a late season snow storm to cost us a few days and destroy any hope of decent AP-physics scores this year. Yeah that would be classic.

    It was 80 degrees according to the thermometer in my car, officially 79 in Cola. I really need to mow my lawn.

    Southeast Sanitarium - A Place to Vent

    House full of people last night, needed to put the A/C on to make bearable. 74 yesterday and humid as hell, weeds green and growing. I likely have to cut the lawn next weekend.
