The first acknowledged morning of Autumn

Yes, I know we had the first official day of Autumn several days ago at the Autumn equinox. I could point out to you where we were, then, on the analemma that you used to see on old maps and globes, but which they don’t include any longer. But I am quite reluctant this year to see the summer end, and so put the change of seasons out of mind until this weekend when the temperature dropped and seemed likely to stay down for the next four months or so.

Yes, this happens every year. I should be used to it by now. Take deep breaths, etc.

But the cold has officially set in now, as well as the cloud cover which should last us well into February. Gonna write my way through it. At least the winter solstice is not too terribly far away.

Consolation through blogging. That’s the trick.
