Gray skies and some farm work left undone

It’s been a tranquil day of weather in Orleans County with temperatures at about 50 degrees. I didn’t bother with the winter coat.

The sky has been gray all day and there has been a little rain. I drove to Carlton and Kent earlier today and took the back roads on the drive home to Albion.

I stopped for a picture of the one-lane canal bridge on Keitel Road in Albion (top photo).

Just before that I passed by an orchard on Zig-Zag Road. It had been nearly picked clean of all its apples, but I noticed a few were still hanging on the trees. There is also some corn left to be harvested in the county.

The temperature is forecast to drop to the 30s on Saturday with Sunday at a high of only 25. I’ll have to get out the winter coat.
