Creeks/branches have puddles of water but are not flowing. Pasture grass still ok and green although it's not as lush and is taking on an autumn appearance. Lawn mowing is most likely finished for the year.

Recent dry weather has dried things out a bit now w/no standing water, but with ponds & lakes still brim-full. Hurricane debris piles are becoming a fire hazard as falling daytime humidity & absence of rain once again are making these piles tinderboxes. Supplemental irrigation now is becoming needed for agriculture and home landscapes; however, the general landscape continues to be green & so far, is unaffected by the current drying trend.

Only 0.03 inches of rain in the past 10 days. But moisture from the heavy rains prior to that still seem to keep the bushes and grass relatively green. The trees are browning a bit; with only one maple in view with any color to the leaves. The oak trees all look green. Fall is "late."

After a week or rain, we've had a week of no rain, but the temps have been a little cooler so no extra watering was needed. Rain is predicted to come in tomorrow night, along with much cooler temps so we should be back to "normal" temps. if there is such a thing anymore. A little color in the trees but most leaves are either green or dry and falling because of the hot and dry conditions in September. A very strange fall to cap a very strange year.

The garden soil is dry for the first inch, slightly moist under that. To see water in the one flowing creek you have to get in it and pull back the weeds. The forest floor is dry and covered with lots of dry leaves.

THE PAST WEEK WE HAVE RECEIVED 0.13" RAIN ALTHOUGH THE GRASS IS STILL STAYING GREEN AND THE GROUND SEEMS TO BE HOLDING MOISTURE MUCH LONGER. THE HEAVY DEWS IN THE MORNING AND THE LOWER TEMPERATURES SEEM TO BE KEEPING THE MOISTURE AROUND A LITTLE LONGER. YELLOW JACKETS, LADY BUGS AND STINK BUGS HAVE SURE MADE AN ABUNDANT APPEARANCE IN THE LAST WEEK. I AM FINDING THEM EVERYWHERE OUTSIDE AND ALTHOUGH I DON'T REALLY WANT THEM IN THE HOUSE I FIND THEM IN THERE TOO. FARMERS HAVE BEEN FINISHING UP THE LAST FIELDS OF SOYBEANS AROUND THE AREA AND NOW HAVE SWITCHED TO CORN. THE SOYBEAN PROCESSING PLANT DOWN THE ROAD FROM ME HAS BEEN FILLED TO THE MAX WITH SEMIS WAITING TO DUMP BEANS. FALL COLOR IS SLOWLY CHANGING. SOME SPECIES OF TREES ARE CHANGING FASTER WHILE OTHERS ARE JUST PLAIN DROPPING THEIR LEAVES. NOT THE BEST FALL TO BE LEAF WATCHING BUT THERE ARE STILL A LOT OF OTHER TREES TO CHANGE THEIR LEAVES YET. I WOULD SAY 25% OR LESS LEAVES ARE FALLING OFF OF TREES SO FAR. CHECKED THE FURNACE THIS WEEK TO MAKE SURE IT IS READY FOR THE WINTER HEATING SEASON, BUT OTHER THAN THAT WE HAVE HAD NO HVAC ON FOR A FEW WEEKS NOW. LOOKS LIKE THE PASSING OF THE COLD FRONT THIS WEEKEND WILL CHANGE THAT THOUGH AS HIGHS FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK LOOK TO BE IN THE UPPER 40'S.

We got 0.02 in. of rain this week. Last week's rain and some heavy dew this week have kept the grass lush and green, but many trees have dropped their leaves. Autumn color is very muted, mostly yellow, and brown is mixed in. Yellow jackets are much more abundant than last year. We still have marigolds and yarrow in bloom, still have bees. Mums planted about a month ago and regularly watered are about through blooming. Still picking partially ripe tomatoes to finish on the kitchen counter.

Ground surface has dried out back to dusty conditions when mowing. But good moisture still in subsoil. Plants green and still growing. Young trees still putting on new growth. Lots of grass and forbes producing good seed heads for wildlife. plenty of grass for cattle. POND levels are starting to drop but not quickly. this week saw a great variety and number of butterflies working flowering plants on the ranch. Lots of insects in the pastures and bird activity feeding on them. Had firstcold snap this week with lows in the 50s and humidity below 50%.

The FoxMill Weather Station temperature-compensated soil moisture readings at the 3 and 5 inch levels, 36 and 22 centibars respectively in Buckhall silty clay loam with 3.7% fine gravel/particulates and 3¾ inch mowed dense fescue overcover where the ground sensors are located. Ground temps at the same depths are 59°F and 61°F. Soil moisture education note: Barring a torrential downpour resulting in standing water, the soil moisture levels at 3 & 5 inches in the station’s Buckhall clay will lag rainfall by 12 - 24 hours due to the fescue moisture uptake and slow percolation in the clay soil. Levels at 8 & 16 inches are relatively stable. A total of 0.20 inch of precipitation recorded in the past seven days since the last Condition Monitoring Report was submitted. Weekly evapotranspiration (ETo) total was 0.38 inch resulting in a 0.18 inch ground moisture deficit. This morning’s weighted soil-moisture reading puts us just barely into the “Mildly Dry” range as defined by CoCoRaHS. Should slip into the “Near Normal” range Sunday or Monday before a little rain this coming Tuesday according to the modeling. October cumulative totals: precip 1.45 inch; ETo 1.16 inch resulting in a monthly ground moisture surfeit of 0.29 inch at FoxMill which correlates nicely (high R^2) with the observed soil moisture readings after accounting for the last precipitation type, weighted rate of fall, amount, duration, surface water runoff, ground temperatures, ETo and the previous 30 day rolling measured data. FoxMill Weather Station (VA-PW-13) provides detailed ground moisture information (including evapotranspiration plus multi-depth soil temperature and moisture readings) on a *daily* basis in the CoCoRaHS Daily Precipitation Report ”Observation Notes" section which is updated at 6 a.m. by the duty observer. Data reported by: observer2 (ampersat) foxmill.us at FoxMill Weather Station, Saturday, 21 October 2017.

Received 1.74" of rain over the past three days making conditions much improved. The cedar tree next door no longer has dead or dying needles. The big wind(gust of 36mph) we had three days ago helped clean dead needles and leaves from trees. Deer are eating new grass in the backyard. River level is up. Another storm is approaching today. Ground is soaking up the rain, so, not many puddles now.Fire ban still in place but hoping it will be lifted soon. Some fires are permitted but only if reported first.

With this week's 0.67 inches of lightly falling precipitation, conditions have improved considerably. Open fire ban has been lifted and the air has been cleaned. Soil moisture has improved at the surface, but is still very dry at lower levels, Small creeks and streams have not shown any sign of increased flows due to the rains being absorbed by the very dry vegetation and soil surface. Agriculture activities are confined to soil amending and general cleanup. Vegetation is in full Fall color with leaf dropping increasing daily. As an added note, we now have a small resident herd of Mule Deer living here in our locality. Since their habitat has always been confined to land west of the Columbia River, the herd must have swam the river to the east side.

Rototilled my three garden plots (30'x20'each). 25% raised a little dust, 25% was quite damp and 50% was very moist. I only tilled about 3" deep to get the weeds I was supposed to do during the growing season. I have heavy clay, with a layer of trucked in topsoil. It has poor drainage.
