We don't have any problem with convicted felons on the NFL field, but political dissent is right out.

Air temperature 58 F, dew point 56, calm, clear. Back to scraping paint. Old people and old houses . . .

Nothing to see here

Air temperature 52 F, dew point 47, calm, scattered clouds. Newspapers not ready at the convenience store. My day is ruined.

Air temperature 49 F, dew point 44, scattered clouds, wind north about 10 mph. We're still trying to fill in Jose's low pressure.

Asters and goldenrod, goldenrod and asters, with patches of chicory. I may have seen a late-blooming St. Johns-wort or yellow loosestrife.

Roadkill limited to a chipmunk, one gray squirrel, and a fall warbler that won't make the migration.

Windy, cool, got out on the bike. Did not die. Ride takes me to 1100 miles for the year.

Hope the "America First" crew will remember that Puerto Rico is America.

Our small white yard-asters are doing the bloom-under-mower-height thing again. They'd like to grow a few feet tall, but an inch will do.

Air temperature 67 F, dew point 65, wind north about 5 mph, scattered fog. The world is not complying with my demands.

And yet another reminder that I don't understand people . . .

Tuesday floral report

Small white asters making snowdrifts beside the road. First milkweed pods splitting open. Oak trees dropping their nasty ball-bearings all over the road.

Little change on the foliage front -- more ash leaves down, more red maples starting to turn, and the wild cucumber vines have started to go yellow in the trees.

Roadkill consisted of another garter snake that has become one with the asphalt.

Damp, still air, got out on the bike. Did not die.

15.26 miles, 1:12:55

No local hurricanes. Jose may brush past us tonight into tomorrow, with high surf and minor coastal flooding but little wind and maybe a bit of rain. Air temperature 62 F and dew point 61, overcast, near calm, some fog. Bike ride after the roads dry off?
