The Halloween decorations are finally out and I picked what will probably be the hottest day of the month to put them up. We hit 91 degrees today and the normal high is supposed to be 73.


Snoopy is the new addition to our Griswold Halloween.


Nothing says ‘spooky’ like a skeleton that appears to be awkwardly drowning in dry grass.


On the weather tonight, they said that it has not rained here in 50 days. I know this for a fact. After tons of frustration trying to put up the scarecrow during lunch, I finally set the sprinkler up for four hours so the ground would be soft enough to drive those stakes 5 inches deep. The ground was so hard that I kept bending everything I tried to anchor down.


That was Columbus Day / Canadian Thanksgiving. It was a fairly quiet day since everyone from the main office was off for Thanksgiving. Tomorrow it will be back to the grind.
