Autumn is here
Well there is no denying it any longer. We had our first significant frost last night. I wrapped the exposed pipes last night and brought in the house plants. And put away the shorts. Autumn is here!
Most of my life, I've lived in places where the transition between seasons was subtle and gradual. I'm used to Spring and Fall going on for a couple of months at least. In Colorado you're lucky if you get any transition at all. We had a pretty hot summer, so I was looking forward to some moderate weather. I got three weeks. The foot hills are already covered with snow. It shouldn't last, but the change is in full swing.
