Back To Basics

Autumn is back. The warm spell of last weekend came and went. It is nice to get back on schedule. Temperatures hovered below average for the most part and precipitation fell on 4 of 7 days last week. The rain is much needed as we are currently in a slight drought situation. (OSNW3 October Observations)

Steam!
On Saturday morning when the sun finally penetrated through the fog and hit the rooftops directly a few plumes of steam gave way. I thought it was fun to watch, so I snapped a photo.
