Labor Day may not be until next week, but Fall is certainly on the horizon. The temperatures haven’t really dropped – at all – here in the Atlanta area but the endless summer days have given way to evenings that are shorter if not cooler.
Meteorologically, Autumn doesn’t start until September 22 this year, but that just marks the calendar day when day and night are of equal length. It happens in the Spring, too, but on the upside as the days start getting longer.
Climatologically, it won’t be Fall here until probably late in October at the earliest. On the other hand, when we lived in Anchorage, Fall was usually early September, with a nip already in the air and the possibility of snow before the end of the month. Summers in Anchorage were lovely, winters were interminable, Autumn was so quick that if you blinked you missed it and Spring was mud season.
Here, Summer is hot, Spring and Fall are both lovely, and Winter just kisses us. The leaves do turn and fall, but the snow mostly doesn’t. And I like it that way.
