It's fall...I mean, summer...I mean...

Here in North Texas, the average temperature for October should be in the 70's, the weather guessers--I mean, forecasters--tell us. But as I sit here and write this, I can look back at recent days where the temperature was in the 90's. If this is fall, it's not typical.

What are your indicators for fall? Do you look forward to Halloween (or Fall Festival, if your church calls it that)? Is Thanksgiving the official start of fall for you? Does getting down the jackets and sweaters mean that fall has finally arrived? Don't go by what the stores display, though. Some of our local establishments are already putting our Christmas stuff.

I'll be away from the computer today and Friday, so I won't respond. But don't let that stop you from leaving a comment. And play nice.

When the leaves start turning is my start of fall. We're already seeing a few gold poplars but it's mostly still very green here in North Mississippi. I'm reading Doctor's Dilemma and loving it.

I’d say fall colored leaves, but they aren’t too bright this year, just a dull brown, and our temps are warmer than usual, too. Lived here 2 1/2 years and it’s been mid November when I switch out my clothes!
