Early taste of fall - Week of September 30, 2000
Well, last week my page was titled "Late, late summer" and sure
enough this week fall came. We had the first really hard frost at the Ranch
this week. Also this week I had to move my camp out of the house so that the
floors could be sanded and finished.
This is a very
beautiful morning! This shows the mist rising from the pond. With the sudden
change in air temperature over the last couple of days the pond in still warm
and the air is very cold.
Here the mist from the pond is drifting up the hill
towards the cattle.
Looking back at
the house you can see the field and house roof is still heavily frosted. At
least until the sun hits it...
.. then the frost turns to a mist too..
.. here its vaporizing off the roof.
This is the living room and dining room after they
got it sanded....
... and this is the living room looking towards the
front door. Now, every nook and cranny is absolutely covered with a thick coat
Here's a front view of the house as it is today.
Still have to rock the walls and sidewalk.
