Yeah, 50's at night and low humidity 70's-80's during the day is fine with me... if only we could figure out how to keep it like that and not get any colder!

I love the fall weather and watching all of the awesome leaves fall! I don't know, it is like everything feels so peaceful outside.

Got down to 41* F a couple of nights ago and up to 80* today. We can expect frost any day now.

Oh, how I love this time of year too! As the temperatures drop it feels like a new beginning as totally different activities lure me outdoors into the crisp air as colorful fluttering leaves foretell of hours of John Deere PowerFlow bagging adventures to come follyowed by the tranquil white winterscape...

(Oh what total BS, Hydro!! :D :dancingbanana:

After a stint in the SW high desert 20 years ago, I give thanks for being able to live in this Mid Hudson regions's climate. Just when I get bored with 98º/99% humidity it begins to change towards Fall and then.... SNOW and cold wind and ice storms bringing big white pine limbs down on my bedroom roof... Hey, wait a minute!

Ah, that stuff is few and far between it doesn't even put a dent in Winter enjoyment for me! The offset is being able to run my 026 saw and hear the purr of my generator sucking down $5.00/gal. gas hours on end... Uh, oh! :D

We've had our AC off and windows open for the last two weeks, you're right, can't beat it!

Every year, the last week of Sept or first week of Oct my FIL and I head out on a big 4wheeling trip with his club. We set up camp on Sunday and camp/wheel all week. The following weekend is a big event with several hundred folks an a couple hundred trail rigs. Anyway, every year when that first cool evening hits it gets me all fired up about our trip. Spending all day out on the trail enjoying the woods in shorts and t-shirts then getting back to camp and cooking up a big pot of chili and hanging out around the campfire. Just two more weeks until our trip :bounce:

The last few cool nights I've been burning bark in my fire pit. It's so nice to sit outside with the fire burning and relaxing.

Yes, I said BARK. I've got tons of Oak Bark from splitting firewood. Once it's split, if the bark don't fall off, I knock it off with an ax. I save it to burn in the pit. I hate wasting good wood for entertainment.

You got a new wood burner a year or so ago, didn't you? How's that working out?
