Last night was a wonderful rainy night complete with thunder and lightning... and the pitter patter of raindrops on the window as we slept. With the morning, the rain has diminished to a drizzly mist. The perfect day to sit back and enjoy the fall colors.... Unless they cut down one of the few trees that actually have color in the neighborhood.
That is correct! The sewer people had to take down one of the most colorful trees in the area down. It, unfortunately, happens to be right in the path of the projected sewer system and can not be saved. Ah well, it is not unusual that Iowans are constantly taking down trees to keep the land nice and flat. ( I'm kidding)
Other than that, the cat has been enjoying the outdoors with the introduction to the cooler temps. He seems to enjoy exploring the earth moving equipment that the sewer people have left on the yard. Not to mention the exposed earth!
As for Cheryl and myself, we ran today in the mist ( thankfully, the rain had stopped before we set out on the training run) and Cheryl got her Boston Acceptance note-card in the mail. Looks like we are going to have to "officially" plan on saving up for the race.
