Where did autumn go?! I was so looking forward to crisp blue skies and perfect temperatures. After six months of heat and humidity, I felt I was due, right? But no. During October, that most perfect of months, the temperatures went from near 90 degrees one day to damp November overcast the next, and things have only gotten worse as genuine November weather moved in. Oh, there was the odd promising day here and there, but I’ll bet there weren’t more than two passable days back-to-back. I am reminded of Halley’s Comet. All my life up to the point of its return, I had looked forward to seeing that most famous of cosmic visitors, but when the appointed time finally came, it wasn’t even visible to the naked eye. Friends said they “think” they could make it out, but it didn’t matter. It was dud. This non-autumn is almost that disappointing. I know, I know. It’s rather pointless to carp about the weather, but it is all that’s left to me. If I could do something about it, I would.
