Good morning! Where did September go? I am blaming Donald Trump. Five weeks to Beaver Moon. Cold, gray, and cloudy and 52 degrees in Delmar, NY — which is the norm for Saturday’s in Trumps America. Except for the past two weekends, I can’t remember a time nice Saturday weather-wise. All that hot air coming from the NY Post President occasionally residing in Washington. There is a north breeze at 8 mph. The dew point is 45 degrees. The skies will clear around 5 pm.

Today will have a chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a high of 56 degrees at 2pm. 10 degrees below normal. North wind around 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible. A year ago, we had cloudy skies. The high last year was 64 degrees. The record high of 88 was set in 1905.

The sun will set at 6:37 pm with dusk around 7:05 pm, which is one minute and 45 seconds earlier than yesterday. At sunset, look for partly cloudy conditions and 53 degrees. There will be a north breeze at 7 mph. Today will have 11 hours and 44 minutes of daytime, an increase of 2 minutes and 51 seconds over yesterday.

Tonight will be partly cloudy, with a low of 38 degrees at 5am. Seven degrees below normal. North wind 3 to 5 mph. In 2016, we had light rain in the evening, remaining overcast into the early morning. It got down to 50 degrees. The record low of 28 occurred back in 1993.

Blueberry waffles for breakfast. Which is pretty much the norm these days, as I like the ease of make waffles in the morning and the fresh breakfasts.

Planning continues for my Columbus Day Week Trip. I think I have most of the details figured out now, although I’ve changed my mind a bit from last night on the routing. See that I will most likely have cell service in Thomas, WV, I will probably spend at least two nights camping out in the general vicinity of Cannan Valley. That and I and I want to visit Blackwater Falls State Park, which I previously overlooked. I found all the maps I needed — half of them were still sitting downstairs while the other half where right into he crawl space.

Going down otherwise library in a bit and I have a lot of miscellaneous things to do and some cleaning. But other then that with the weather being so sucky, I plan on a fairly quiet Saturday.

Looking ahead, there are 5 weeks until Beaver Moon when the sun will be setting at 5:43 pm with dusk at 6:13 pm. On that day in 2016, we had mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 53 and 31 degrees. Typically, the high temperature is 53 degrees. We hit a record high of 76 back in 1994.
