Quick, before I get Sidetrack'd

Welcome Fall

Thoughtfully penned on October 24th, 2007 and generally concerning Fall Festivities, Sidetrack'd

Although fall officially started a month ago, it is jut now making it’s way to West Tennessee. The temperatures over the last few weeks have been in the high-70′s to upper-80′s range, and let me just tell you how silly I feel wearing shorts and flip-flops every day in October.

Things began to change on Monday when the rain started and a cold-front moved through. It has been raining for three days now and is supposed to continue through tomorrow. Rain is tough with a little girl who loves to play outside, but the cool weather is worth the insanity.

So this week we are celebrating the onset of Fall: temperatures in the 50′s; the opportunity to wear long sleeves, sweatshirts, and jackets; soup weather. There is something about the change of weather that comes in Spring and Fall that makes me smile.

  1. Me too! I love it! I think we’ve had every “wintry” comfort food that I can think of, except chili, this week! Hmmm…chili and corn bread sounds yummy! Welcome Fall and PLEASE STAY!

  2. Yeah rain! I think you and I have similar weather most of the time. The rain’s made commuting a nightmare, but it sure was great to have it, huh? Today looks to be beautiful. The sun’s out and no humidity! Enjoy the rest of your week.
