Lovin’ It!

Another beautiful day today! I am love, love, LOVING this weather!


Although a lot of our leaves have fallen for another year and even our sunny days are somewhat gray, I am still so happy at the weather we have been having. I’ve mentioned our weather a few times already in the past weeks, so I decided to take a look at the statistics for last year compared to this year, to get some real numbers to go with my opinion.

This is what I found out. For October 2010, we had 16 days that had a high over 60 degrees. We had a low under 40 degrees fifteen times.

In October 2011, we had 21 days with a high over 60 degrees, and only 10 nights with a low under 40 degrees.

Out of 31 days, that’s not bad! Guess that’s why we only used TWO bags of pellets for the whole month of October!

IMG_1029The difference became even more obvious when I looked at the stats for November. The average high for the first nine days of November last year was 45 degrees….vs. the projected average high for the first nine days this year – 56 degrees.

So, it wasn’t just my imagination, or wishful thinking. Winking smile

The insurance adjuster came this morning and looked at the roof of our fiver. His opinion is that we only need a repair of the affected areas, and not a replacement. We were glad to hear that, because we have been leaning in the same direction. We are going to take it next week to a Dedrick’s RV Mart in Coxsackie, which is about 30 minutes from here, and have the repair done there.

Tomorrow is Friday!! Yay!! Have a great day everyone!!
