It’s nice, these three-day weekends built into my cutback work schedule. I’m happy to watch this through window, with the warmth of the furnace.
I enjoy the clash of seasons: the falling snow surrounding the fire of the turning maple.
Growing up in Northeast Ohio, we almost always had snow before Halloween, followed by milder weather until Thanksgiving.
I don’t recall experiencing this here in Kansas City often over the past eighteen years, but I moved here during a spate of mild winters. I’m not entirely sure that the KC Metro even has a typical winter.
Current forecast says we’ll be back to sixty degrees by Halloween this Saturday. Long-range shows mostly fifties to sixties through to Thanksgiving.
This is just a blip. Y’all be thankful I didn’t put up the holiday lights yesterday!
