But we aren't there yet. Yes, a few trees are beginning to drop leaves and the remaining flowers are all that will be for this year. The chill in the air is noticeable, even in the still warm sunlight, and that sunlight is coming from a much lower in the sky orb.
It's a new season, though, and the return to routine has its goodness, as well. Still, the snow could hold off until
November January, for my tastes and ease of getting around. The primary sump pump we just replaced is still running every five minutes. I wonder how many years of drought we would need before it stops.
At any rate, break out the indoor to-do and project list as they will be needed soon enough.
