Well, as everyone knows by now, the Cards rallied and the Nats lost. But oh what a season they gave us! The Nationals had an outstanding year, giving the city something we haven’t seen in close to a century, a winning baseball team in DC. We have Davey Johnson, Stephen Strasburg, Bryce Harper, Jason Wurth, Gio Gonzales, Ryan Zimmerman and all the others to thank for all the glorious play, the unbelievable pitches, the outstanding hits and the high drama of the outfield. It was great! And now we have all winter to dream of the return of the Boys of Summer. Great job and thanks for the wonderful memories!
The weather seems more like November than mid October these days with our first frost occurring on Friday. A portent of a hard winter to come? Perhaps. We didn’t actually have a winter last year but I just hope Mother Nature doesn’t feel the need to make up for that and give us the snow and ice for two winters. At any rate, the plants are getting mulched and the gardens prepared, just in case. The generator is in, new roof on and gutters as well. I hope we are prepared but you never know until it comes. At least I have lots of books to read and pumpkin spice coffee to drink. Sigh.
