Monsoon Fall

The wet is beginning to get on my nerves.

Can you really enjoy the beauty and drama of fall to the fullest when you are stuck inside most of the day?

Fall is an outdoor activity.

Even continuing rigid insulation work beneath the cozy cabin is enhanced by the dry.

Monsoons are for naps, not wandering the mountain byways peeping.

In between weathers I wander outside.

To have a closer look at fall.

It is pretty colorful.

I hear tell some people think you are supposed to pick these things up.

I don't think so.

It is looking like peak will be this weekend. Hooray! The wet does seem to make the leaf colors jump higher against the black tree trunks. Are they predicting snow for you on Sunday?

Carol said...

Something has changed about your blog. I like it!

I also do not like the cold and damp. But the leaves still turn, don't they? I think we'll be at peak by this time next week.

This weekend will be good, possibly the best. And oh my I just looked. There is a slight chance of snow flurries in the higher elevations on Saturday night. It shouldn't amount to much and would melt before you got here.

Thanks Carol. A fall makeover. This is the week to be in the mountains of NC.

SNOW??!!! Are you kidding? It isn't even mid October! This has been a very strange weather year, hasn't it? Was your header photo taken recently, or is that from last year? Your pictures are really beautiful!

It's hard to be inside with all that beauty. I do hope you will have a glorious weekend,

Siria the header picture with snow is from last year, October 28th to be precise. And while looking for that I found Mama Spot first appeared on October 18th. But yes there is a chance for snow this saturday night.

Lola by Monday it will be clear and cold. I hope the clear sticks around for a spell.

Your fall photos are some of the most beautiful that I've seen. I love the patchwork valley with its puffy gradations of color. Your banner photo is also fabulous. ... No reason I can see for picking up the blanket of confetti dotting the road. The wind should take care of it. You've got more important things to do.

Will you be able to live in the cabin this winter?

Christopher C. NC said...

Thanks Grace. I try. The wicked cold wind is sure to be coming soon with the winter storms.

Hi anonymous. No I can not live in the cabin this winter. It is not hooked up to electric, water, plumbing or heat just yet. I could camp out in there with a lot of blankets maybe.

Thank you for heading outside Christopher! The view is spectacular! If the weather were dry I might have joined the peepers! gail
