November brings us to the last official month of “The Season”, although there are generally not many storms during this month. The few that have formed usually head across the islands and then NE and out to sea.



It’s time to start watching fronts to see if we can get any rain for the southeast to help ease the drought.



So ,get ready to stick a fork in hurricane season, pull it out and go straight for the turkey!

    Good morning Cone. One last blast of warm air here today, supposed to be in the mid 70s.

    Morning Blakels!

    From what I've seen most of the country is having a warm spell, but we all know that....

    Good Morning Cone, blakels, Lib and EveryJuan else as they start to stir around. It is 53 and some patchy fog around.

    It is a nice new blog Cone.

    We were spookless last night, so I have a whole bag of candy to eat, last years bag made it to Valentines Day.

    We had a record 10 Trick or Treaters last night. 2 littles and a gang of 8 middle schoolers..

    Because our house is older, the kids think it is haunted! And we are out here on the main road, kinda on our own. Some years we don't have any T or Ters. I wonder if it has to do with the giant spiders and ghosts we hang from the house?

    Morning folks.

    My windowcast for today.

    It is currently 61 with no clouds and little or no wind. The establishment pukes give us a 0% chance of rain and they're probably right on this, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to make that prediction. We do have dew however.

    Good morning. 54 degree wakup temp and just over a blustery night. Saw one tree down in the neighborhood as we were driving to the bus. The warmth brought out the kids as we ran out of purchased candy and switched to candy the kids had gotten at a camping trip in September. I would hand out the candy and my neighbor friend would peek around the corner of the bay window wearing a Pennywise mask. The guys stayed behind this year so we could drink some Ichabod Pumpkin Ales and scare kids.

    It's what we do.

    Morning Kai, LF, Dr. Mark and Yoop!

    20 Tricksters here, used to get 50-60, but the neighborhood is getting older and many of the kiddos have moved on. Fine with me, I like watching the old movies without having to get up to much.

    Thanks LF! It ain't much, but it's ours

    I made a pumpkin spiced ale this year that is quite tasty and have Fat Boy's Big Butt aging in the fridge getting ready for the "Holiday" festivities. At 8.5% ABV it should keep the elves in a jolly mood

    Gasoline pipeline that burst in September blew up yesterday when someJuan hit it with a backho', which is never a good idea.

    We got about 20 or so groups of little ghouls last night. Our area is safe and good for the little buggers, but there is a lot of distance between houses so the kids can't get as a big candy haul per time invested and mileage walked as they can in other areas nearby, so in the interests of productivity and cost benefit analysis, many of the kids go to other areas.

    It's simple economics.

    Makes perfect sense to me!!!! Great analcyst there, Dr. Mark. That's why we call you Dr. Mark.

    That's why you get the big bucks.

    Good morning and afternoon, everyone. Awesome job once again, Cone! Love your humor in the blogs!

    No trick or treaters here but I started hearing police and fire sirens continuously last night. Finally found out what was going on. They had several fire trucks, Parish Sheriff's cars and a couple of tractors pulling flatbeds of kids. They'd stop and the kids would take off to the houses under the watchful eyes of the firemen and sheriffs. I was told at the end they are all taken back and given cookies and a drink while their candy is checked and then sent home. It was started for the kids who live very rural like out here. I used to take my kids on Post, but I was able to do that since I was a card carrying member. This new thing looks like the kids had a blast.

    Breakfast's on the sideboard: Andouille sausage and shrimp scramble, creamed chipped beef over biscuits, Breakfast Grain Salad with Blueberries, Hazelnuts & Lemon, cranberry coffee cake, Apple pie bites (apple slice wrapped in a croissant), broccoli & cheddar omelet, brown sugar oatmeal, Tea, Regular and decaf coffee with flavored creamers to the side. Enjoy!

    What a WONDERFUL idea. More towns should do something like that.

    It is a shame in our society that we have to check the candy--but hey, back in the 60's and 70's I vaguely remember the ol' razor-blade-in-the-apple scares.

    That is one of the perks of Halloween---leftover candy.

    (Can anyone tell I have been drinking tea and have a burst of energy?)

    Guzzling tea are we? I prefer coffee most of the time, but do like some tea when it's cool out, about Juance or twice a year

    Morning Aislinn! Got so excited about peeps getting fried by their farts in the OR that I forgot your breakfastcast Not that it's changed since about 3 weeks ago.

    Breakfast!

    I'll have some creamed chipped beef over biscuits and coffee - TYVM and you're welcome for the blog. If I could write like Triple K it'd be a lot better, but he is most unique, to say the least!

    Hey LF and Cone.

    I remember the razor blades and apple thing as well. It is sad that they have to check candy now a days. Little Aislinn went to the church trunk or treat, sadly safer.

    Passes Cone a large plate of creamed chipped beef over biscuits and a pot of coffee.

    Happy November everyone. I got home just after dark and didn't see any kiddies but they may have been out earlier. Funny, I remember waiting until it got dark to go out.

    Since you mentioned brewing, I just started a venture in that direction. I am getting all hippy-dippy and trying to brew up some kombucha (fermented tea). Won't be ready for a while so I am collecting bottles in anticipation. Coincidentally, Grolsch bottles are just right for the finished product.

    Hi HCat!

    Good luck with your Kombucha, I tried it Juance and found it wasn't my cup of tea

    The license plates are changing color around here, the luxury car haulers are headed out to Sailfish Point, and the private jets are coming in one after the other.............

    Yep, I declared snowbird season open here the other day when I saw Ferrari out and about. You never see Juan of those around here in the summer.

    Exactly! And my neighborhood and house especially is very hilly. So I give out large rewards for those that make the effort. I think word is getting out. I had quite a few this year. I think I spotted a tour bus.

    You can tell I'm reading back. I believe all the razor blade, poison, LSD reports were eventually debunked as urban myths or pranks. At least I read that somewhere.

    Update: Did some checking. There are documented cases of pins and needles in fruit, often by kids scaring younger siblings. (What a sibling!). No serious injuries but a woman did have stitches from a razor blade in an apple. No documented poisoning or apparent attempts to actually kill by adults except one 49 year old guy was indicted for attempting to cause death or injury by adulterating a substance by putting a pin in a Snickers bar. A 14 year old girl was pricked but didn't need medical attention. I would have been at extremely serious risk on the Snickers bar but pretty safe from the apple attacks. If I was a debate fact checker I'll have to go with somewhat true but overly scarifying.

    I'm following DJ's four post rule. Water temps in Cozumel went from 85 to 82 during the 2 weeks I was there. Low octane rocket fuel for November.
