Scale Bar: Near Normal
I have gone 14 days without any rain and for October that is below normal but with the cool weather and the above normal rains of September I will report Near Normal condition, for this week, but it is very close to Mildly Dry. The trees are all turning color and starting to drop their leaves. Our Farmer friends have made great progress on the harvest with most fields done. My apples trees have been picked (except for the really high apples) and I made three batches of cider this week. Overall the apple crop was ok but a little smaller in size. I had a total frost this week so the garden is done and will need to be put to bed for the winter. All of my savable potted plants have been moved to the garage, they will be trimmed back this week and then moved to the sun porch for their winter home. The pond level has gone down an inch or two this week and the creek has gone down  too this is not normal for October.
