After enjoying an extended end to summer, fall has come to reclaim its rightful place as the current season. The sun and the relative warm temperatures that it brought to the beginning of October has given way to cloudy skies and colder temperatures. The rains have not come yet but those are just days away.
I knew things had changed when a co-worker showed up to work in pants. I’d never seen him wear pants before. I even saw a guy wearing a scarf today. That might have been overkill but we’re kinda of wimps here when it comes to weather. The last several days have also brought a thick fog that blankets the city just shortly after the sun sets each night. It’s as if the fall season is reaching out with tendrils of grey and cold.
The sun and warm temperatures will not return until May at the earliest of next year. It’s time to get bundled up again.
