Monday Musings on This ‘N That
Fall is officially here. More so in some places than in others. It was in the lower 80s here yesterday and calling for the same today. Could this be the global warming some folks talk about? In my youth I spent a lot of time in the Smoky Mountains and the leaves changing color for fall was a treat for eyes to behold.
Of course in New England the leaves are probably already showing themselves. I would love to go up and see them, but I’m a chicken when it comes to cold weather. I grew up in the shadow of the Smoky Mountains and went to school farther north than that. I did fine with the cold weather then because I hadn’t experienced the almost subtropic temperatures we’re used to where we live now.
Today I’ll pretend I’m in Vermont (north enough you think?) and feast my eyes on the photos below. Might even help me to think it’s cooler here than it is. I could be happy to live someplace where daytime temps stayed in the 75-85 degree range. But, here take a look.
