What a storm, what a dump of rain!
I'm glad we are high and dry, with gullies and wetland all about. After my coffee, I should go check out the frog pond! It rained all day, yesterday, and all night. Buster was somewhat grumpy. Somebody in my house has to go clean the eavestrough!
Today is the first day os the Autumn Equinox.
We've been happily getting sunny days for the past week.
The changing light levels are interesting, as well as plants dying back and going dormant, critters (wasps!) stuffing themselves. Journey North tracks sunlight, the changing seasons, migration information, as a crowd source. The hummingbirds as they disappear, and return, as well as other critters.

has now produced flowers!
Phenology: The Seasonal Timing of Life Cycle Events
Phenology is the study of the seasonal timing of life cycle events. You are studying phenology when you record the date a certain plant grows, a tree's leaves emerge, an insect hatches, or a migratory bird appears on its nesting grounds. The dates on which these happen each year are affected by factors such as daylength, temperature, and rainfall.The Equinox is Coming!
Are days and nights equal on the equinox everywhere on Earth. Please report daylight hours.
They link to US data bases to determine your sunrise and sunset, but I found a Canadian site. I found it interesting comparing Ottawa and Toronto, the two major cities near us.
