The Edge of Wetness

Happy Hikester
Temperatures have dropped significantly under the front that came in from the west overnight, and we have a fairly decent chance of rain over the next few days.  The long hike Becca and I took this morning was delightfully cool, though humid, with a slight breeze.  The breeze has become a wind since then, but it's not howling.  We saw other outdoor enthusiasts this morning, several people hiking with dogs, and one jogger back at the trailhead; both he and Becca seemed equally uninterested in each other.
Solid cloud cover all morning

Desert Marigolds

I love that photo with the desert marigolds in the foreground.

I agree with Dr. K about the image with the Desert Marigolds. Here in the northern Piedmont, we had a front come through on Friday that really lowered our temperatures. Saturday's high (55 degrees) was 13 degrees below normal, and I awoke to frost on Sunday morning. Today (Monday), our forecast high is 52, and we had a freeze (30 degrees) and heavy frost overnight. No more cricket song this year.

Thanks, Scott. Those temps seem okay for me, but Dr. K would be unhappy about the cold. :)
