Deck Sealers Rejoice for “Moderate Drought”

We are all “abnormally dry.”

  • Even worse: most of Nashville is in a moderate drought.

You know how it happened:

  • Our last rain of more than a tenth of an inch was 0.44″ on September 11.
  • We average 3.80″ from Sept 1 to Oct 6. This year we’ve had 1.43″, almost all of which came the first two weeks of Sept.

Not even a chance of rain until maybe late Wednesday, Oct. 12. Low confidence in that.

It’s a great time to seal your driveway or stain your deck.

  • If my wife is reading this know this applies to other people who do handy things.
  • I would mess it up.
  • Probably by accidentally sealing the dog.

It’s going to get cold.

Upper 30°s Sunday morning.

  • Official low at BNA Sunday morning is 40°.
  • BNA is usually one of the warmest spots during cold fall and winter mornings.
  • Your backyard will probably be colder.
  • Frost should be east of us but your roof may gather a bit of it.
