Autumn 2017 Has Arrived in Garrett County

The calendar said so yesterday! ... Fact is we've been preparing for several weeks.

Right now we have great Indian Summer weather. Glad I haven't put away the window AC's yet. But we know it won't last. And we definitely know what comes next...

This year, all the local Deep Creek folks are talking about the abundance of acorns falling like rain. The bears, deer, squirrels and chipmunks are feasting on them and getting fat. Is this Mama Nature sending us a message? We haven't had a harsh winter for a few years... we're due.

The pic below is of a doe and her two fawns that live in the woods around us. I've watched the trio since the babies had spots last spring. They drive our hounds crazy, but they sure like living here.

Fall is here and winter comes next.

At least you didn’t mention that S-word!

My plow is already on the truck because my roofers moved it and I had to put iton the truck to move some brush. SnowDogg plow is a booger to mount and dismount when there is no level pad.

Just don’t say “s*&w”

This is the time of year I like to do a road trip on my Harley. Tried a week ago, had a mechanical failure - luggage rack. Got it fixed and ready to go again. I ride through multiple states and sometimes, sleep just off the road, so a national CC would be a gift to me.

How do the leaves look?

Are the tree leaves colorful now in Western Maryland or...
I'm in Northern Carroll County and some of the leaves have started to turn color but most trees have not.

We are considering taking a ride West this weekend.

Autumn Glory Festival is this week. This is what the leaves looked like at the range last Sunday. It won't be long before they're off the trees...

I saw your truck and thought you knew something that I didn't. I had to put the AC back in my window since then. I am still wearing shorts and flip flops.
