Fake Fall Ending Soon

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. Mother nature gave us a bit of a scare this week. In case you missed we had frost warnings. It feels so wrong to turn on the furnace when it is still summer but I did because my feet were cold.

Real fall will arrive in a few weeks and it will be a special fall without a traditional Halloween or Thanksgiving and probably no real school either.

This past week was just a drill to help us get ready and an opportunity to test the heating system and to make sure the windows still close. It is still summer and we can expect temperatures in the 80’s next week.

We will know when it is really Fall because the leaves will change color and the days will be shorter.

This is what a real fall looks like:

Downtown Taken from Indian Mounds Park – with downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis in the background.
Fall - park
Late October – Harriet Island Park

Today is also the 19th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that killed 2977 people. I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing and a whole lot of other things about that day.
