We have had two such incidents, where our balmy October/November temps (!!!) have been temporarily swept through by a cold front, bringing with it raw, wet weather and high winds. A week ago, the Saturday of the undone Halloween party, we were under a wind advisory. I battened down everything I could think of (as in tied down the bright, new cover on my fuel tank enclosure to within an inch of its life), weighted or moved buckets, etc. Then went inside and tried to ignore the howling. After delivering the meals to neighbors - and getting buffeted across two lanes, to and from my destination, I came home to this.

I took the tarps off after it was lifted and moved (wind howling and me hoping a flying branch wouldn't finish me off) so that the wind wouldn't further toss it onto my newly stretched fence.
I am now up to 6000 units of D3 a day. Enough about the weather.
The one bright spot during the past week was a quick and wonderful visit with Sylvie! I took a day off and we crammed enough culture into it to carry me through the month. She is the cheerleader of my finer self. We walked for miles through MASS MoCA, a fascinating museum that houses all manner of contemporary art exhibits - some massive.

a very thought-provoking, poignant

I am working on another pair of socks - for me - and I am very happy with the pattern. Once these are finished, I am on to holiday knitting.
