Around OakMeadows


Today the Generac whole house generator was installed. They have to come back one more time actually turn it on and show us how it operates. It is a great relief to know that when the next hurricane blows through, we will have power/air conditioning during and especially in the days afterward. 

We had to have someone come out and repair the garage door opener. Somehow the heavy spring  broke. I am so old that I remember when you had to get out of car, unlock the garage door, and lift it open, then you would drive in  before closing it by pulling it down. 

The wildfires are blazing in California. 2 million acres have burned and several of the fires are completely uncontained. Completely to be expected with climate change. 

55 days until the election. 155 days until the inauguration. I hope I never see or hear anything ever again about the Orange one.

190K deaths from Covid-19. No end in sight. A vaccine may be available in the spring, 2021. We shall see.

Love the pretty Fall Wreath! The generator will be nice! The wildfires are so devastating. Yes, the orange man needs to go.. Take care and stay safe!
Have a happy day and week ahead.

The fires are frightening and were so long predicted if we continued on our unsustainable path. The Woodward book held no surprises apart from the depth of his callousness for those he has pledged to protect.

I'm uncertain as to where the USA is going he has a strong fan base and the election can be rigged.

Thank you for your good thoughts and caring about us out here in the blue states (where according to the orange one, we really even aren’t a part of the country). Our air quality is better the last couple of days, we got some rain. Still beyond awful needless to say for the people who lived in the fire zone. So much loss.
