As I enjoy these gloriously sunny, warm and (mildly, please) humid days of summer, I change the perpetual calendar and realize that only six months from now, we will be in the throes of bitter cold January. I should get rid of that perpetual calendar!
I’m reminded of a recent October snow shower that surprised me, and provided a true test in contrast. I love to sit out on the deck in the evenings, far into October, so I usually wait to ‘clear the deck’ until at least mid October.
Winter was certainly impatient that year!
