Last Gasp of Summer

I bounded outside early this morning and froze as soon as my garage door finished opening. There was something in the air, a crispness, an edge, that told me one thing unequivocally: Fall is coming.

Isn’t it funny how there’s this distinct shift in the air at the end of summer? You get so used to walking outside into that oppressive wall of heat and then one day it’s gone, replaced by something refreshing that still feels like an ending. I always think summer is going to last forever, that the outdoor adventures and beautiful weather will never end. I end up surprised by fall every darn time.

  1. What is this crispness of which you speak? After a week of cooler dry air we are back to warm and humid and probably will be there for another 2-3 weeks.

    You’d have weather-shock for sure if you ever moved to the South-East!

  2. -Blanche, Like most people on the west coast, I absolutely melt in humidity. I wouldn’t last long on the east coast!
