Monday, August 23, 2010...You Can't Fool Mother Nature...But She Can Fool US!!!!
What the heck is going on with this weather? Just today, we were up on the mountain and saw many maple trees whose leaves are changing! You say..."It's almost the fourth week of August....soon it will be September and all the leaves will change." There's nothing weird about that, I agree, but we have recently been seeing several doe whitetail deer with spotted fawns. Now that is extremely weird! These fawns should have been born in April and should be weaned and their spots faded by now. I wonder if they will not be too young and untrained by the time hunting season arrives this year to know what's going on and be prepared to withstand winters cruel grip.
The Pupskill Bay Lake creek Pond puddle is again full and healthy looking again. We wonder how long it will stay this way....perhaps for the rest of the season, or perhaps not until the end of next week, when the sun comes out and starts to dry everything out again. We just never know what to expect. We wonder if all the fish between our lake and the one downstream, across the road, perished in the drought. If not, where did they go when the pools and the stream dried up? Do they go into the mud before it dries completely up or again...do they become coon food? We know there were fish below the dried up breast of the beaver dam at out lake... We saw the swimming. Several weeks later, they were gone and the water was dried up.
Another thing we noticed is that the pears on our tree are dropping. That usually doesn't happen until later in the fall too. However, they are dropping off as if it were late fall...Seemingly screwed up like everything else this summer.
The Pond Looks Great Now.
The Barn was soaked this morning...
Look at the pears on this tree...
How beautiful the colors are....
