Good morning!

As we expected, it's another fine and sunny morning here with clear blue skies.

Nice.

There is going to be more of the same into the weekend with gradually warmer temps each day. (Some forecasts are showing a little rain around Sunday, but other than that lots of sun).

Someone sent in a mail asking me if I was looking forward to having more time to enjoy my early morning toast once the season is finished. The answer to that is - yes, of course! (As much as I love writing these reports). After writing a report every morning for over five months, it always feels a bit odd at first when the season is over. But, I can stock up on the toast and go into hibernation to recharge for a few months, which is a lot of fun.
