I am headed into town. It's a nice day, and I need to go in for a few things. Among them, a stop at the post office. I have to check with the weasels there to see if they will let me send sorghum syrup in glass jars through the mail. If not, I will go to the pack and wrap store, I'm pretty sure UPS will let me.
It's good weather for a change. Humidity is low and the temperature is mid seventies.
We're supposed to get rain this afternoon, but just showers. I don't mind that, but I can do without the torrential downpours we've been getting this summer. It's been a week or two weeks with no rain, and then thunderstorms that take down the power and bring sheets of rain.
Other than the nights getting longer, there's no real sign of the summer being over. We have about six more weeks of summer like weather, and then around mid October it will suddenly be flannel shirt weather, and time to have a fire in the fireplace at night.
Things are going slow and steady at the moment, with no big problems to resolve. It's pretty quiet. Just started raining again, so at least I don't have to worry about forest fires for a bit.
