On Sept. 10th, it hit 95F. Had the A/C running hard. Most of my hops went from green to brown that day. and the blackberries shriveled on the cane. Saturday, I finally get a batch in the fermentation cabinet (former kegger) and set it to 64F. This morning, the official temperature outside is 38F, there's frost over in the marsh and the fermenter is down to 60! Ditto, my bedroom. Time to switch over to heating mode.

Still, Fall is my favorite time of the year.

It's been like that here, too. On Thursday night, it got down to 27 degrees. On Sunday, the daytime temperature was in the 80s and even last night it was quite warm. It's definitely fall when you use the AC and the furnace in the same day!

It was in the 40's or 50's yesterday morning, and mid 80's in the afternoon. I had to change clothes from longsleeves and pants to shorts.

I wish it would cool down only because I want my kegs colder and I don't have kegerator money.

It's still hot as a mother here in FL.

Damn humidity...

I do love fall, though! Too bad it's so short...

Already Indian Summer here. You know it's Indian Summer when there's a patchy fog in the morning.
If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself!
