The weather even here is telling me it’s time to start
thinking about fall. This morning it was warm
but the day was rainy, cloudy, and cool until
into the afternoon. Pretty unusual here in
SW Colorado. The forecast was just on and
they are talking about highs in the 80’s and lows
in the 50’s. Guess I need to take down my
crows and melon
for this year and put up the black cat. Fall is always
my favorite time of the year. I love the cool nights and
warm days. I used to love to rake the leaves in MN, even tho
it often didn’t happen until too late and I had to work
until dark or later to catch the trash hauler the
next day. Now I have no leaves to rake but
hope to make a trip up to the Grand Mesa to look
at the colors. The aspens can make a hillside glow.
Nothing can beat nature for the show it puts on season by season.
The big news out here weatherwise is that there was SNOW
at the top of Pike’s Peak. A couple of years ago when I was
still skiing, this would have set my heart racing with anticipation, but
since I have not skied in a few years, I’m just glad that it
was in the higher elevations and there it can stay for awhile.
