Autumn arrives


Good-bye summer--hello autumn.

At 11:09PM EDT tonight, summer will officially end as the sun crosses the equator not to be seen in the northern hemisphere again until March.


Autumn Along the Niagara River
October 2009
 Ugh! I can't believe it's over.

The pool is still open.

I had to mow the grass.

The leaves are still on the trees.

There are flowers! OK--mums!

Actually it seemed as if it was already here yesterday. The morning temperature was 48 degrees! I haven't seen temperatures in the 40's for a long time. I even put the top up on Cat to drive to work. It was just too cold and I'm fighting some respiratory bug anyway--no need to stress myself more.

The colors are nice--but transient. I took the image along the Niagara River last year in October. I guess it is something to look forward to before the white stuff decides to cover the ground.
