It’s Stopped Being Fall —- Monday, November 14, 2022

“One golden day redeems a weary year.”–Celia Thaxter 

Although, the light is still on the pink side

As the sun starts to set

And the calendar still says it is November

The air has said we have stopped having Autumn, and now moving closer and closer

To winter!

Alas, our above normal December temperatures have fallen to ‘normal’.

Yesterday's-HighThis is the high yesterday.  Which really was much colder as we had a sharp wind with the cold, so the wind chill needed to be factored in.

Even as cold as this was Fuzzy wanted to stay outside, although Boomer didn’t.

Sam didn’t stay in much either, preferring the outdoors, then sitting by the wood stove when he came in, then back out he would go.

Monkey, made a wild dash out the door, only once,

I-want-inWhen I went out to do something.

This is what I saw when I came back.

Although, I know cold is relative, this is cold to us

When-we-woke-upThe temperature when I got up today.

And it will only get worse as  the days wind down to the solstice on December 21st.

Will that be the end of the world?!?!?

I have know idea.

I do know that after the solstice, the days will start to grow longer again and the temperatures even colder and colder until we hit March.

Which seems like a very long time from now.

Oh, well.  Cold like this is really hard on the bugs, which can be a good thing next summer!
