Happy Tues. Cool here at 34 degrees after a balmy weekend that turned cool Mon. Saturday it was windy and got up to 66 degrees. Early Monday morning we got a tiny bit of snow that melted on contact. Clear skies now, after a beautiful sunrise.

I spent much of the weekend on my knees scraping, sanding, and painting the deck. Much fun was had. Then a few huge gusts of wind blew every dead leaf in the neighborhood onto the deck and driveway. We have more leaves this year (personal theory) because the leaf miners that have caused early leaf drop on the aspens the past several years abated quite a bit this year. So more freshly fallen leaves litter the ground, waiting to be wafted onto the freshly painted deck by whirling winds.
