The morning started warm and just kept getting warmer with the sun peeking out as the morning progressed. The warm temperatures are having a yoyo effect on us. Mid afternoon found the temperature resting at 82F/27C with humidity high and the winds higher. We're in the area of high wind warnings today with possible t-storms late this afternoon and into this evening.

We spent another lazy day doing just a few little things such as cleaning up pollen from the inside of the Igloo and going over our shopping list of items we wish to take back to Ontario with us. I also spent some time doing a few emails.

The winds picked up this morning and have been steadily picking up as the day goes on, the owner lady Tina was out cutting grass today and the grass and dust were flying everywhere. It's the second time they've cut grass since we've arrived, or maybe they've just finished the first cut due to water. I'm not sure.

I called a few places yesterday making reservations for our homeward journey and talked to a lady in Quincy, Ohio that told me they just had 6" of new snow overnight and was I certain I wanted to make a reservation. The sound of her voice was one of shock and humour. I've checked the weather and today they are getting lots of rain in the forecast so I'm assuming the snow will be gone when we arrive on Saturday.

The forecast ahead looks like one or two cold nights and a couple cool days but otherwise things are looking quite good for the trip back to Ontario and when we reach there the weather looks to be improving as well. So let's hope it actually goes that way.

So there you have it, our quiet day here. They are winding down with just one more full day here before we hit the road. As I type this the temperatures are dropping, the skies are becoming overcast again and the wind is still pretty blustery. The coolness in the air is apparent and the winds are switching from the SW to NW.
