A long, hard work day.

Being 3 hours behind Eastern Daylight Time and having India-based developers who are 12 1/2 hours ahead of you makes for very early mornings and very late nights. I’m not complaining, it’s a job I’m well compensated for with good people to work with, and not everyone can say that.

But still it was a very long day.

I’m out on the back patio and it’s after midnight. There’s a deepening low to the north of us that’s bringing the first light snow of the year to Flagstaff and heavier snow to the Rockies, and the wind has been howling with blowing dust off and on since noon. The winds are pretty strong – strong enough that that lovely new crown on one of our established queen palms has broken, leaving it without any chance for new branches on it’s south side until next year when the same thing will probably happen again.

It’s 70 degrees right now. I was hoping to go for a final swim because tomorrow the daytime temps will only be in the 70s and then tomorrow night the first 50s of the year which will crash the water temperature for good, but the water is covered with all kinds of detrius and frankly, I’m not in the mood to get wet right now. So that as they say is that.

I’m having a Sam Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale to chill out and try and get my mind off of work. It’s a nice seasonal brew with – yes – pumpkin and cinnamon flavor – kind of the beer equivalent to a pumpkin cider. Very fall-ish.

The Accuweather long-term weather forecast is for a wettish winter around here. Hoping that’s true.

The new palms and plants seem to be doing OK thus far, tomorrow’s the last day of daily watering before they go on a regular schedule.

Like I say, it’s after midnight after a very long day. The rest of the world seems sound asleep and it’s time to give the rabbits a midnight snack.

Say, not much of an exciting post, is this?
