Still pleasant in E Texas... days 70-75 F... nights 55-50 F !
Really nice working in " tha yaard" in the cool crisp weather... now you might be wondering WTH is he doing in " tha yaard" ?
Getting the vegetable beds prepped for next spring- mulching leaves, turning soil, getting grass along edges out... etc. My soil need LOTS of conditioning. Basically 1 step above sand !! I am growing some lettuce! ... and brussels sprouts ! Still have sweet banana peppers, bell peppers, and jalapeños coming in ! Cooler weather really stimulated them. Okras and maters been gone for a week ! So hot this summer they were almost stewed on the vine !!

not one bit jealous of that 'mater-stewing heat this summer
smart move prepping the soil NOW for next Spring Dry leaves, green clippings... horsey & chicken poo are also a big plus. (watch WEEDS THOUGH!!!) The beauty of A COMPOST HEAP is the internal temps actually get high enough to cooks/kills weed seeds.
We do not get much snow here, last year we had two or three days with snow on the ground...hope this year is more of the same, people who dont see snow all that much really dont know how to drive on the stuff...

I still recall what was a famous Nor'Easter hit NJ. It dumped 3-5 foot of snow over night, entirely burying everyone's cars, making it next to impossible to clear the roads, lest you plow into parked cars concealed beneath the snow drifts.
What brings it to mind was that one of my Southern relatives came up for a visit that year, and experienced more than the usual Alabamian "glazing" for the first time in his life!
As I've already related, we lived within an industrial park... so my dad would sometimes volunteer to get up before day break to clear the parking lots before the other workers would arrive.
When Gary got up in the morning and asked where my dad was, we casually told him that he was out plowing the snow.
We still have a laugh over Gary's astonishment over WTH anyone would want to get on a tractor and plow snow!?! what the heck would he plant???
He also couldn't grok Snowshovels... He was game to help dig out our car, but he figured whatever needed doing was to be done using a garden shovel.
LOL we gave up trying to explain that the noise he heard out in the street was made by something called "Snowchains"!
