Oops. I spoke a little too soon when I complained in November that we went directly from summer to winter. We did have a rather nasty spell of cold weather last month, but once that front moved out, fall had arrived. At least the trees and squirrels think that’s the season now.
Daytime highs are in the 60s and 70s, with cooler nights. Austin actually has some fall color now. Rustling leaves and dropped pecans are scattered on the sidewalks and ground. Flocks of Canadian geese fly over on their southern migration and ducks have again taken up residence on Lady Bird Lake. The Congress Avenue bats have left for their winter home in Mexico.
So, no more complaining about the weather here…until the next cold front comes to town.
