Late Fall Starts

In my eight-season year, Indian summer runs from the fall equinox on September 21 to November 1; late fall starts November 2 and runs until the winter solstice on December 21. For the last six weeks, we have had beautiful Indian summer weather: little moisture, cool nights, and sunny days that require, at most, a light jacket. Today late fall started, right on schedule. It is cold and grey and drizzly, and the forecast is for more of the same – plus snow – all week.
