Glorious October - Helen's journal and online home
In which an old dog attempts to learn new tricks.
Glorious October
Because G needs to refer to serious research while writing the book on local geology and because it's cheaper than paying for an online academic library subscription, he has signed up for an OU ecology course. (It makes sense to him!) Of course this means he has to do the experiments and assignments, so this morning we had a little expedition to place a couple of thermometers around an oak tree. This is the view from the tree. As you can see, the weather is particularly nice for October and everywhere is still very green.

I took for granted this year's October was going to be warm, based on the last few years. Getting used to the world of global warming.

When I studied to become a naturalist, one of my projects was to monitor the quality of water in a local creek. Oneida the protocols required was to record both water and air temperature. I became fixated on the awareness of local temperature and take a scientific thermometer with me when I travel.
