Good morning! Monday’s come back around again. Next Monday is Columbus Day. God willing, I’ll be in West Virginia. I think I have the trip planned out well. Mostly sunny and 41 degrees in Delmar. Calm wind.

I woke up this morning quite well rested after retiring under the red light by 9:45, drawing the curtains and lights out by ten. Woke up briefly during the middle of the night and then around 6:30 to hear the news. Definitely a beautiful day out, although not a lot of colors yet. Pleasant walking down to the express bus. Some light traffic heading into the city. It should be a really nice day.

Today will be sunny, with a high of 69 degrees at 3pm. Four degrees above normal. Calm wind becoming north around 5 mph in the afternoon. A year ago, we had cloudy skies. The high last year was 63 degrees. The record high of 85 was set in 1927. There was a dusting of snow in 1899.

The sun will set at 6:33 pm with dusk around 7:01 pm, which is one minute and 45 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for clear conditions and 65 degrees. There will be a calm wind. Today will have 11 hours and 39 minutes of daytime, a decrease of 2 minutes and 52 seconds over yesterday. Autumn is well underway.

Tonight will be mostly clear, with a low of 44 degrees at 6am. Typical for tonight. Calm wind. In 2016, we had cloudy skies. It got down to 57 degrees. The record low of 29 occurred back in 1945.

As previously noted, next Monday is Columbus Day when the sun will be setting at 6:21 pm with dusk at 6:50 pm. On that day in 2016, we had rain, drizzle, cloudy skies and temperatures between 60 and 46 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 63 degrees. We hit a record high of 83 back in 1949.

The West Canada Lake Wilderness Area is an Adirondack Park Forest Preserve management unit in the town of Ohio in Herkimer County and the towns of Morehouse, Arietta, Lake Pleasant and Indian Lake in Hamilton County. It is bounded on the north by the Moose River Plains area and private lands in the vicinity of Little Moose Lake, Squaw Brook, Snowy Mountain and Squaw Mountain; on the east by NY 30, lands of International Paper and the Spruce Lake-Piseco Lake trail; on the south by private lands north of NY 8, the South Branch of West Canada Creek and an access road to private lands; on the west by West Canada Creek and private lands east of Honnedaga Lake.

The area contains 168 bodies of water covering 2,400 acres (9.6 km2), 78.3 miles (126 km) of foot trails, and 11 lean-tos. The 133-mile Northville-Placid Trail traverses it.

Good morning, Happy Monday! And with that the weekend comes to a conclusion and it’s a Monday morning. 40 degrees and clear, although I expect there is some fog in the city. The sun is rising on what is expected to be a beautiful day with deep blue skies and a high around 70.

The first half of the week is supposed to be most excellect, then some rain showers for the second half of the week. Get out and enjoy it. Winter is just around the corner.
