Good frost at my house this morning that should be a big step towards putting everything's growing season to an end.  I put a lot of time into what should be the final trimming and clean-up of the yard and bushes this weekend, as well as some pressure washing to get the outside of the house in good shape before the cooling weather shuts that kind of thing down.  Next weekend I'm hoping to get gutter guards up in advance of the leaves coming down.

East Tennessee's waterways certainly make for interesting morning weather this time of year.  You can go from 0 visibility in dense fog to sunny blue skies in a matter of seconds or vice versa.  Not the best for driving, however.

You fooled me. There is no difference between what you typed and Bruce's average post.

Weekend weather forecast continues to cool.  Now looks like highs will only manage mid 50's with showers around.

Sitting here with a chilly, foggy morning and looking ahead to a cool, cloudy weekend has me wondering if one evening this weekend will see the first fire of the season.  We're definitely getting close to that time and I'm ready to enjoy the sounds and smells of a hot wood stove.

My wallet is certainly enjoying this weather!
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly – raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/
