Time to turn your clock back…
As the days get shorter, one of my least favorite times of the year is when we switch our clocks back. It’s a feeling of doom as we know we are about to enter a black hole of darkness, cold and winter.
This year was a little different. After a gloomy, grey Halloween, we all awoke to clear skies and warmer temperatures. I spent most of my day outside, running at Tolleston, walking my dog at Portage Lakefront and hiking Miller Woods (with a stop for a beer at 18th Street). Everyone was outside, either finishing up yard work, going for a walk or just enjoying the day. The fall colors were still gorgeous and overall things just seemed a little brighter.
Now I know this won’t last forever, but when we get a forecast for the first week of November like we have in front of us right now (70’s!), we certainly can’t complain. And as the days grow shorter, just remember that it’s really only about 7 weeks until we hit our shortest day and then spring is on it’s way!
I would like to thank my Facebook followers for the photos featured in this week’s post. Last week I asked everyone to send me their photos of fall and we all voted on our favorites. I am posting the top three.
