Today could be the last time we see 70 degrees for a long time folks. Get out there and enjoy it!

A strong cold front will be affecting our area and put an end to the mild Autumn we have been enjoying so far with the first freeze possible Friday night.  Better enjoy the tomatoes now and get that swamp cooler buttoned up!
