I was hoping that the weather would be a little more welcoming, but we are home all the same.
We left temperatures in the high 80s on Monday and enjoyed the mid 70s as we travelled up through the Carolinas and Virginia.
Things started to change by degrees Wednesday as we moved through Pennsylvania and then New York. By the time we were unloading some of the items from our truck, the afternoon temperatures were diving and we locked the truck, leaving the rest until the next day.
There would be no night crawlers on our first night home — that was for sure.
The pontoon boat travelled very well on our new trailer, and our truck hauled them both with ease. I think the most pleasant thing was having a trailer on which all the lights worked without a bunch of dinging on my part.
I get really bent out of shape sometimes when lights absolutely resist working properly on a trailer, and it’s not pretty.
I hope everyone read the information about bears from the DEC a couple weeks ago and took it to heart. While bears are seldom seen right here in the Fulton area, it is just a matter of time before readers will start seeing them or signs of their presence.
