We returned home late yesterday afternoon. It, now, is definitively Autumn! :)

 

The high country has a brand new dusting of snow and we drove with ice on the pavement. We currently have a high wind advisory that we hope will knock down most of the pine needles from the ponderosas. It is cold and the furnace in the house is now on for the season.

 

:)

Tested the heater but I'll wait for winter rates before I start running it. Still waiting for the wind.

Big wind and big windrows of pine needles on the ground. Is this why it's called "fall?"

I have to agree, it is a delight to have more light in the morning, but the Eeyore in me says it’s sure gunna get dark early.

As a retired guy who can set his own schedule, I wake up and go to sleep when I feel like it -- regardless of the official clock time. So DST or not doesn't affect me much. 

 

But there's sure no avoiding the seasonal changes in daylight length and times -- the ones based on the Earth's tilt and orbit, not the law (without doing some equator hopping).
