Cold Springs Ranch: Early taste of fall, the week of September 30, 2000

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.

{mist riding from pond}

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.

{Frosted field}

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 of sawdust!

Here's a front view of the house as it is today. Still have to rock the walls and sidewalk.
