I am completely amazed at how quickly and completely all of that unreal sunny weather we had this Summer vanished. I remember, when school started, having to make sure that the kids all had clothing that allowed them to be cool in the afternoons and now I’m making sure everything is warm and waterproof. When August ended, I was concerned that everything might be too dry because this was one of those summers when everybody got a tan – even people who work in offices all day. Meanwhile, September had record rainfall and we are getting rain in some form just about every day. I won’t be surprised if there are salmon crossing the street again this year. I guess that’s what hot cider, tea, soup, fondue, blankets, board games and crafts are for.
