I stood on the corner and waved goodbye to summer as the autumn wind blew through my hair and swirled leaves at my feet. It didn’t see me though. It was already well on its way out of town.
After extended summer weather (days with highs near or above 80) mostly filled with rain, we managed to get one more good day yesterday. And then, it was gone. I can’t tell you how glad that, in spite of the rain, we managed to get as far on the carport as we did Saturday. It would be ideal if tomorrow could be just a few degrees warmer than what they’re predicting.
This morning, as the sun begin its crawl up the sky, there’s a chill in the air that I’ve not felt in months. (Nor have I missed it.) It’s in the mid-50s and the wind is gusting up to 35 mph. Brrrr. It’s not expected to get above 70 today and tonight … lows in the 40s. Ouch. My fear of an early frost may not be unfounded after all.
It’s going to be a long winter.
