Official start of Fall according to Lincoln Sign Company
I gave up and surrendered to the inevitable this morning and started the first fire in the woodstove in the shop. Yesterday was the first day that is dropped below 60 degrees in my office without any source of heat and it is 58 degrees right now. The outside temp is 30 deg so that's it, I'm done... When you hold the cup of coffee just to warm your hands, and you can see your breath as you type the mornings e-mails, a fire needs to be made.
I fully expect all the leaves now to suddenly change colors and fall off the trees all at once (Whumpf!) followed by 6 inches of snow at noon.
