Just in time

Finally finished my backyard fence (or at least the section I've been slowly replacing). Today, the prediction is for a huge "blue norther" cold front to come through and push everything below freezing by tonight, a drop of 40 degrees in half a day (on some past occasions, that's happened in less than an hour).

This is how fall and winter come to Dallas: simultaneously. I'd post a photo of the wooden fence if I could figure out how to reduce its memory size. The last time I put up a personal photo, I nearly crashed artsjournal.com.
