We're counting yesterday's weather as a bonus day. It's rare that November 1 in Iowa is so beautiful, with the afternoon temperature reaching an unusually mild 75 F (23 C). We've enjoyed brilliant autumn colors, and haven't had to go far to appreciate them.
My own yard! In the foreground, a burning bush.
Maple trees in the backyard.
That's Dan, and Hogan the dog, walking on the sidewalk.
In the afternoon we drove to Saylorville Lake, Sycamore (boat) Access, and walked along the trail, soaking in the day.
It's a good thing we did! If we had waited until today we'd be soaked! It's not only raining, but looking and feeling very dismal. With a 30 percent chance of snow overnight, hurrah for color while it lasted. Linda
