Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall

Meteorological fall started on September 1, astronomical fall arrived on Tuesday, September 22, 9:31 A.M. EDT. So no matter how you count, or what your temperature, it is time we bid adieu to summer, 2020.

With all of summer’s oppressive heat, cootie masks, closed businesses, wildfires and riots it’s hard to believe it will be missed but I will.

Still, I’ll welcome fall and all it’s blazing glory for what it is - one more marker in time’s relentless cycle of death and rebirth. 

“And all at once summer collapsed into fall.” – Oscar Wilde

Summer temps have returned to these parts for a few days but the wise thing at this point is to put away the things of summer and get your favorite sweater out.

Because you know what’s right around the corner.
