Darkness Arrives

The return to standard time has happened. 

I got to sleep an additional hour on Sunday morning. I can't for the life of me remember actually enjoying the additional sleep. The penalty, however, was that it gets dark by 5:30 PM, which is great for sitting around the fire pit but not much else.

And the weather is getting colder.

We are expecting our first no kidding freeze on Saturday morning. The projected temperature is now down to 24 degrees! That, friends, is cold. I have a lot of work to do around the house, including getting in some of the not-freeze tolerant plants inside to escape Jack Frost's touch.

The march of darkness continues. The days are progressively getting shorter, and darker.

I think I need a trip south of the equator! Maybe the wine country of Argentina or South Africa where springtime is fading into summer.

It is nice to remember that while we are devolving into darkness, elsewhere the sunlight is strengthening.
