Frosty here this morning but sunny and warmed up to around 50. Nice day to do chores without working up a big sweat!

Funny, I was dreaming of this weather all summer, now that it is here I could do with a few more 80 degree days.

Yep the weather man says good chance of a freeze tonight which is early for this area by 9 days if not more. Wondering if with as bad as the summer was being hot and dry if we are in for one heck of a cold wet snow/ice type winter. Sure hope not because if we have it many may have one heck of a hay/feed problem. Go out in a little bit and turn on the water to the garden so as to save if for a few more days

I don't give up my sandals until November or the snow flies, but man, my toes are cold!!!!

Was just sweating in the combine cab a few days ago, what happened???? Tough to go from unseasonably warm to unseasonably cold so rapidly.

Had to get herd re-vaccinated this weekend. Been putting it off for a couple of weeks due to other stuff like corn and cover crops. We decided to do it on Sunday because there were no real conflicts and everyone was going to be home. Then we hear the forecast- chilly and gray with drizzle tomorrow. And that barn can be chilly in the wind, so we decided to do it today. Spent 6 hours running 90 head through, re-tagging, re- vaccinating, and de-nuetering about twenty young bulls (no more). Freed up tomorrow for the Orioles-Damyankees playoff and the Ravens game in the evening. Might have just been a good call....

For those who may not know: A brass monkey was a dimpled plate used to stack cannon balls, on the old ships of war. The cannon balls were made of iron which contracts less than the brass as the temperature drops. In very cold weather the brass plate could contract enough to allow the cannon balls to fall off. Hence the phase - "cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey".
