Fall is in the air. Finally...

This summer was a hot one for sure. In my area where Warren, Sussex, and Morris counties come together we broke 90 on a grand total of 4 days. Those days being:

**Netcong-Hopatcong-Mount Olive**
July 4- 91.7
July 5- 92.7
July 6- 97.1 (All time record is 98)
July 7- 95.0

While my area may have only busted the 90 mark 4 times the entire year NYC did it 37 times! But those days have come to an end. In fact northwest Jersey will struggle to even see 80+ temperatures until next spring for places above 500 feet in elevation. It's all down hill from here folks, which is good if your a snow lover like me.

I also want to point out that the leaves are off to a very quick start this season, and without rain will mostly likely peak around the 15th-20th of October. But unfortunately dry summers lead to a dull fall, lacking in bright colors. That shouldn't matter anyway, because winter is still lurking around the corner.
