Hello to All,

That wind and rain we had wasn't so bad here as other places. Thankfully we didn't lose power on our road. Many lost power and some are still out. At least the weather isn't so bad at this time, although it does get cold at night. Folks are raking leaves that are flying all over, and getting their firewood in. Buttoning up for winter as us old folks call it.

Until next week,

Be warm and stay safe. Our pretty leaves are slowly blowing and falling off the trees. They have been so pretty to look at. Moose hunt has been on, and continues. I hope if you were chosen, you get your moose. Have seen deer around and turkeys.

Been making apple crisp, and must do a pie next. Eating stews seems nice with this cold weather to warm the insides, plus delicious. Cider locally at New Beat Farm on Thursdays, 1-6 p.m. Heidi Perkins still working on the movie (CD) of Frye Mountain history and tours.
