Hurricane Earl!

Last weekend the Hubby and I decided that for Labor day we would go down to Wilmington or Topsail beach. However as the week progressed and news of Hurricane Earl increased we decided to play things by ear

I have to admit, I was pretty excited for the hurricane to hit. Obviously we don't live on the coast, but I was looking forward to some rain and hopefully a little cool down in the weather. As much as I love the heat I am ready for cooler weather and my fall decorations are already unpacked waiting to be laid out

It's funny. In Wisconsin, September is considered fall. The days may be warm but the nights start to become cooler. My parents and in laws are both up in northern Wisconsin at their respective cottages and the weather during the day is low to mid 70's and 30's at night. I never thought I'd admit it but I'm jealous of that weather right now.
Working with a client at his school this week the teacher asked what season it was, I of course thought fall but she wrote down summer. As far as I can tell we have a few more weeks of hot weather here

And as for news of the hurricane, the coat didn't get hit as bad as predicted and we didn't get a drop of rain. Oh well they do say two hurricanes are brewing again out in the ocean

Today we have planned a cook out with our good friends, we are going to spend all day by the pool and cook steaks and chicken on the grill. Throw in a few drinks and it's going to be a perfect day

Tomorrow we are going to take the dogs to the lake. They love to swim and have been quite bored since we've been back from our vacation

Monday we may head down to Wilmington after all. Who knows

Happy labor day weekend everyone

  1. Hope you have a great weekend : ) I wish I was the pool and not about to take an 8 hour flight tomorrow!

  2. have a great weekend! I laughed when you said you thought the season was fall, but the teacher said summer. I'm from WI too and would have said the exact same thing! But now that I live in the south, it sure feels nothing like fall! I'm excited for cooler weather too...and wearing boots! I got some new ones in Spain and I'm dying to wear them.

  3. Definitely glad the coast didn't get hit as predicted. We are headed to Wilmington tomorrow, should be a beautiful day!

  4. Have a great weekend! I hope you get some relief from the heat soon.

  5. What a fun way to celebrate! I have to admit- this is my first fall in 'Wisconsin' type weather (I'm in ND).. and I missed warm weather, bbqs and sitting on the back porch this year! Friday Saturday and Sunday were nice- but BOOM! Monday brought a 20* temp drop and rain... summer is over. :( Anyway! Hope you enjoyed your weekend!
