It sure felt cold when I opened the window. 37 degrees! Low of 35 tonight. 

70 by Monday though, that'll feel nice. Leaves at about 25 percent by my estimation.

Huge wind blew through last night and this morning. Dead Pine needles all over the roads and in driveways etc...

Finally, the hot humid weather has left. Lots of deer hanging around. Look out on the roads. Tons of cycles up this weekend. Going to be a beautiful 3 weeks as the colors are really starting to pop.

Last weekend water temps were 72/73 range on a 200 acre lake. Still pretty warm.

Forecast for next wk is high temps of 60s and 50s. Hoping it materializes.

I can recall 2013 or 2014? whichever, October the bugs were still crazy and the only escape was the middle of the lake. Fishing close to shore was insanity.  That was in October and 3 months later was the artic plunge, record setting cold.

Yeah I noticed only a few at 'that' time in the evening when I was up there a week ago. Nice. Cool nights around here (Hartford) knock them back a bit but warm daytime watch out.

Just got home, they were non-existent.  Didn’t run into a single one.

How are skeeters up there? SE WI just became skeeter circus the last few days.

Forgot to mention all the deer! Really good to see!  I have not seen numbers like this in 20 years!
