Beaver Moon

Mornin'!  It's 34° in Wildwood.  It's darkest before the dawn except when there's a Beaver Moon glaring down at you.  The moon is lighting the partly cloudy sky in this eerie, dark, autumn morn.  It's cold, a bit breezy, quiet and fragrant with that ol' sea aroma in the air.  So, lets talk about this moon and why it was named the Beaver Moon. It was time to set the traps before the waters froze over.  Guess trapping beaver was sign of the times.  No comment.  The November moon is now known as the "Frost" moon.  I'm guessing because of the frost on the pumpkins although not much frost on mine as of late, but it's one chilly morning out there.  It's going to stay chilly as temps may just about touch the 40° mark today.  Sun will be out all day which will help warm us.  Winds will be out of the NW at 20-25mph.  One way or another, I'll probably be setting the traps while howling at the moon sometime today.
