It's Fall!


I can SO relate to this! Yesterday was the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, marking the transition from summer to fall. From this point on, the nights will be longer than the days until next spring. But autumn is often just a state of mind, especially in the torrid American South. Having been through a few equinoxes in the South, I knew that yesterday would be just another day as far as the weather goes, but I was surprised this year. On Wednesday, the high temperature was 90°F (32°C). But where I am, the high temp Thursday was 75°F (24°C) and I needed to bring in the porch plants in last night. The weather is always surprising; this year I am surprised it followed the calendar. (via Digg)

Summer smacked me around since Spring split, then without so much as a thank you, left town.
42°* last night, 68°* today, and a high of 76°* for the next 5 days.
I don’t remember the equinox as time to de-hibernate the boiler.

*That’s Fahrenheit, if you live in NZ get over it.

Princess's AC went out a few days ago. It was 90 and above for the two days she waited for the HVAC guys, then as soon as they fixed it, it turned cool.

Mid-50s and rainy today in Minneapolis.
I thought about turning on the furnace, but I put on a sweater instead.
Trees are mostly green still ... I don't consider it autumn until my Maple tree turns red.
