Yes, it's that time of year again - and we urge you to vote!
ABQ Weather or Not
The Fall weather has arrived - time to fertilize those trees and plants that need it, and to turn on the heater in your bird bath so those little guys have water this winter. And while you're at it, maybe turn on a light in the pump house if you have a well. The trees are turning and cooler temps for sleeping are finally here. Note to Diary: Clocks don't get turned back until Nov. 3rd this year.
