I consider this to be my first fall. And now, some of you are thinking "but you lived in Utah for 4 years!" Yes, that is true. And I used to think that I was experiencing fall while living there too. But since moving to Washington and experiencing the weather change this past month, I've realized that this, this is fall. Week after week of 50-65 degree weather and still no snow. In Utah, the hot summers last for about 4-5 months, and then fall lasts for a whopping 2-3 weeks. Maybe. And then the temperature drops to 20 degrees. And it starts to snow. And then the snow melts. And then the weather is amazing for 3 days. And then it snows again. And so on and so on. NO. That is not fall. That is just the bipolar weather switching from summer to winter. Not fall. I keep looking at the weather forecast expecting it to suddenly drop to 30 degrees the next day. Living in Utah for a long time will do that to you. But here, I have yet to be disappointed in that department. So thank you Washington. Thank you for teaching me what fall really is.
p.s.... we have lots of squirrels here.
