It's 70 degrees now with bright blue skies.  Not unusual weather at all for Philadelphia in the fall.  But given that 4 of the last 6 days have featured high temperatures of 85 or higher, it's unusual for this year.  I guess we've seen the last of the REALLY warm weather for the year, but I am still not ready for winter. 

We never really had a chill, so it's not like you could even call the last few weeks "Indian Summer," since summer basically just stretched on into mid-October unabated.  I have not had the heat on this year and even as late as 2 nights ago, the AC was necessary to sleep comfortably.

And then there was this weird wet stuff falling from the sky last night just after dark.  I can't remember the last time it rained.  According Weather or Not we had .16 of an inch of rain in the last 6 weeks, but I must have slept though that.  The cold front that came through last night with thunder and lightning knocked out the power for a few ours and also knocked out the humidity.  It's really comfortable  outside for the first time in what seems like weeks.

For the weekend it looks like we'll have to fire up the oil burner for the first time as temps will drop into the 40s for the first time since may.  I love fall and I have missed the cool mornings, so I guess I am ready.  No snow yet please though!!!!

It felt so good to go to sleep with the window open, fans off last night.
