Catching Up!

It's been a while since I posted anything. Fall has been a busy time.  We went to Gettysburg last weekend.  We enjoy visiting the battlefields and taking in the history.

We escaped the heavy rains.  There was localized flooding.  The river was up quite a bit.  The creek finally had water in it.  The heavy rains knocked a lot of the leaves from the trees.

Yesterday, I raked the yard, filled the compost bins, and mowed the yard.  Most of the leaves are off the trees in our yard.  I expect all the leaves will be down in a few more weeks.

We had our first hard frost this morning.  It has hit the knotweed pretty hard.

The day is beautiful.  Sunny, light winds, temperatures around 70 degF.  Enjoy!

I love Gettysburg, one of the best vacations we've had was touring Gettysburg, Valley Forge, Philly and Amish country. Oh yeah and the Pocono 500, great two weeks!
