My Fall Blitz has been more of a Fall Survival...

93F today.

So hot I haven't been able to do more than one app of urea. But this weekend should be high of 60 plus.

I think last Wed it was 90 . This wed, it's 56G , cloudy and wet.

Maybe it's just me but seems like spring/summer or later summer/fall/winter, seems like the fast transitions and all I've ever noticed is the looong dog days of summer. Between that, it heats up fast and transitions from hot to cold fairly soon.

I hear you on those quick transitions MobileD! Spring and Fall are just not lasting as long as I feel they should. Over here in OKC, our leaves still aren't even changing color. Every tree is still green! Low tonight and tomorrow are around 37-38F...go figure.

Same issue here. St. Louis had 90s for highs several days into October, and tonight, at least out in the rural area where I live, the low is 31. Yikes.

Just finished a round-trip to Buffalo, NY. It reminded me not to complain about my climate. Saw everything from finished Fall foliage to early-stage only during the trip.
