Ginx is right, hen of the woods, some chicken of the woods, some buttons. Some other generic ones that grow at base of oaks....not sure what they're called but they're good in gravy with sausage over pasta...mmmm.  

Ever look for birch boletes?  Form is like the farmed variety but with a reddish cap, found near birches and aspen, delicious.  Have rarely seen them at my current location but picked a fair amount when we lived up north.  The friend who introduced me to the species noted that boletus edulis, found in spruce stands, is the best.  I've never seen one.

Near 60 this morning, avg minimum for 10/15 is 35.  Dews finally reached here after the finest mid-October wx in memory.  Temps 11-14:
67/45
73/43
73/45
72/45

Minimum of 56F at MVL last night is around the average high temp for today.  Windows open.

Yeah I recommend if one wonders over a wild crop of them ..they should immediately and enthusiastically masticate them without any blue testing first.  Mm...yummy. And the delicious ensuing biliary foaming 'ill make caster-oil reduction seem like soothing cup of warm cocoa.

The same friend who alerted me to birch boletes proposed this test for mushroom consumption:  "Take a bite then wait 20 minutes.  If you don't feel dizzy/nauseated you're good to go." :lol:
Since some of the most toxic 'shrooms don't present symptoms for several hours, and have no antidote, one should ponder one's actions.

Quite a few don't seem to be enjoying the present though.

it is entirely possible for a person to enjoy the warm weather, while also looking forward to winter and chances of snow.

What a day yesterday on the Sound. Water is still amazingly warm for mid October. No complaints if this continues into November....

Todays another great beach day and I bet we hit 80 again here.  The sound is still around 70 here and I just walked my dog by the beach and people were in the water. You notice the insane amount of baby crabs everywhere?

Why are people focused on fantasy snow when we are having one of the greatest extended stretches of Summer in recent memory.

If we can keep the torch going through the end of the month and into November the snow will have a hard time sticking to the warm pavement when it eventually comes.

Nah, the angle of the sun will compensate for it especially if the snow falls at night.

This is great. We have 6 months to see lows shooting up to our west and crap weather. Outdoor everything in mid October. Love to see it.

This weather is fantastic and it has been a blessing to all of the restaurants with outdoor seating.  Nice extended season to put a little money in the coffers before winter.

How the mighty winter weenies of SNE have fallen, reduced to begging for MD climo. You hate to see it.

Its a veiled response, Deep down, Some wish there would be cold and October snow on the horizon, Then you have the others that would cancel winter if it happened.

If there’s one thing I’ve noticed, if it was a snow threat everyone is in on it… but it’s the gap between nice outdoor 60-75F and cold/snow that gets people.

Even Will has said it for years… highs in the 40s and 50s are some of the least desirable weather on the planet (ie Maryland in winter).  Anything to minimize that, be it snow chances lingering in spring followed by fast warm up… or mild autumn that flips to winter in November.

Having no transition weather is boring and there's more to weather in the world than personal comfort.

Yeah, I personally enjoy those clear and crisp days in the upper 40s/lower 50s with a breeze while watching the leaves fall or strolling through some pumpkin patch/corn maze/apple cider fest thing.

It’s been great weather prolonging the warm season. The snow will come eventually, but for now we Torchtober.

I love snow as much as the next weenie, but it’s October. I’ll bitch plenty when it’s 62 on Christmas.

Lifetime Original movie set in NNE in October type vibe.  Men in flannels, women in boots.  How they print it in the brochure.  Brochure says nothing about Torchtober.

I'm not in my 10s/20s anymore.  I have no need for snow/winter.  All it does is become an aggravation for day-to-day work/living.  It can snow 24" but it needs to melt the next day.

That's the main thing.  It will come.  Just like in April/May, summer will come eventually.  No need to rush it.

Move south. I think the DC region would be a good fit. PG or Montgomery County.

We have Mowvember and Dewcember to go through before Winter.
