Is it Fall YET?

Is it Fall yet? Today the high temp here in middle Georgia was "ONLY" 92 degrees. After hitting triple digits the last couple of weeks, 92 seemed like cold a front. The relatively mild heat afforded me a chance to cut up one of my neighbor trees for fire wood (with her permission of course).
I'm so ready for fall to be here so we can get started on our house. Today didn't help my longing to be working on it. The muffled sound of a chainsaw buzzing, the smell of 2cycle engine oil burning, the smell of fresh cut red oak, the feel of the chainsaw in my hands "Oh" Sorry about that, I was getting a little carried away. :) My wife often says one day she's going to come in smelling like saw dust to get my attention.
On a serious note, I'm looking forward to the Log and Timber Home Show coming to Atlanta Sept. 21-23. This will give me a chance to talk to some of the company rep. face to face, like prema-chink and others.
Within the next month I hope to send our plan ideas to Dirkson Design Services or R.C.M. Cad Design Drafting Ltd. In about a month or so it should start cooling down enough. Then I can start planing and treating logs. Can't wait!
