Missed A Season
Last night it rained all night, today it has been overcast all day, and tomorrow they are predicting a deluge with 30 to 40 MPH winds.
What, I ask you, happened to fall? We didn't get one. A week or so ago it was over 100 degrees. Today the high is about 60 to 65.
My gyroscope is completely out of kilter.
In the Midwest, where I originally came from, fall meant hazy days, with piles of colorful leaves all raked up for us kids to jump into, and the smell of wood burning coming from the chimneys.
Now, truthfully, I was more than ready to be done with summer, as it had been scorching for days. I just wasn't quite ready for what passes for winter around here.
Oh well, nothing to do but gear up, because I am pretty sure we don't get a mulligan on the weather.
Hope your autumn is shaping up nicely. Until next time...Marsha
