A gloomy dawn, the sky is overcast with shadows. The air is thick with
the scent of rain. The breeze is chill. Fog kisses the nearing hills,
and the earth is leached of brilliance. On the roadside, the crowns of
a few scattered trees begin to turn. Green replaced with scarlet and
gold.

Today, I wear a long sleeved tee and a wool sweater.

One more week left to the month and autumn has already begun. Will this
wet summer and early fall mean a hellish winter?

  1. It’s hot as balls out there right now. You must be regretting that long sleeve shirt and wool sweater.

    Didn’t they tell you? Fall has been postponed until next week. 😛

  3. Puss: I imagine its worse in Englad. My sympathies.

    Red: I too slept with my winter cover last night.

    Bob: for all that I prefer hot over cold, I’m glad I’m not down south! That’s a bit too much….

    Jen: you’re exaggerating! Low 90’s is not “hot as balls”, its just excessively warm. And for the record, I do not regret wearing a long sleeved tee, even during the outdoor company picnic today. I did however remove my wool sweater.

  4. I’m glad to know someone else lives in a place with unacceptable summer weather. What kind of crap is that? Wool sweaters in August…someone should be horsewhipped!

  5. Tomorrow is supposed to be really sunny and warm. If thats the case, I am off to the beach. Gotta get in what I can befor I can’t! This week sucked.

  8. At: according to some conspiracy theorists, the goverment has been tinkering with weather seeding experiements. If that’s the case, we’ve got our whipping boys!

    Pool, ah, the beach…youlre right, got enjoy it whilst you can! Have fun!

    Martha; thanks! I hope your winters turn out well

    Graffitti; “spring”? Must be south of the equator…Australia, perhaps?
