Autumn is my time of year.
When the leaves that were green turn brown, it's the start of cooler weather, even here in Dallas. There are days that start off low, in the upper 40's or lower 50's, and then as the day moves on, temperatures can climb to as high as the upper 80's or lower 90's.
I still have to say, it's a welcome change from the previous 4 months. I guess one of the reasons I enjoy the change is the cool breeze that blows over and I see the squirrels gathering acorns for the winter. People seem to be in a better mood, due to the cooler days.
It is kind of funny though. I ran the a/c a few days ago due to it being unusually warm and the next morning, lower 50's, I had to stand in front of the space heater to warm myself up a bit. The inside temperature was 68 degrees. I had to get some heat from the gas heater just enough to bring things up to 71 and then I turned it back off. Today the a/c is back on. I still find it somewhat uncomfortable to adjust to the changes.
While at night I cover up with a wool blanket, I wake up to lower temperatures. We went out just a day ago and I wore a long sleeve shirt only to have to take it off and just wear a T-shirt later on in the afternoon. The leaves have been falling slowly but more than half of them are still up in the trees. The main thing I have noticed is the entire back yard is covered in acorns from the 50 years or older Pin Oak tree, planted back in the year 1965, the approximate year my family moved to Dallas.
