What happened???? Cooled off!!!

YES,,,IT GOT COLD!!!!!

Yesterday morning when we got up it was 33 deg!!!! Coldest morning yet this fall. We plugged in the heater and turned on the Heat Pump. Hot coffee sure tasted good!!!


Click on this picture and enlarge it, you will see the ICE on the top of our car......Frost on the grass.....


Ice on Mark and Dale's car.....

Frost on the neighbors house.....

But the SUN was shinning....



That same morning we all heard a LOUD ROAR,,,,,,,,,REAL LOUD!!!! Everyone ran outside and RIGHT above our Teton was this HUGE balloon.............They were Sooooo Close, straight up!! I thought they were going to land on my house!!!!!,or the neighbors house!!!!
I hollered up to the balloon, "HELLO", they all yelled "HELLO" back to me. They waived at all of us and went on across the road and landed.........Gee, that still looks like fun. I keep hinting that I would sure like to schedule a ride.....But it just don't happen. Maybe that's for a reason. Could be.....

It was CLEAR as a BELL all day. That gave us a sample of whats in store for us if we stayed here much longer. So were heading SOUTH in a week.........Call us snowbirds, call us winter Texans, whatever, but call us SMART!!!!!!!:-)

It was a GREAT DAY !!!!!

Was wondering where you were in Custer. We were there in July and it was hot. We stayed at the Broken Arrow Campground and went by a trailer that looked like yours on the road to the campground. We just loved the black hills area. Want to go back again someday.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!
