This was the temperature this morning even at 9 am. And as you can see, this is a few degrees cooler than it was on 1 October 2015. So maybe Fall really is around the corner. And with the rains and wind last night, it was a great start to the Fall once again. It is interesting to me how close to the same date last year this clear drop in temperature is. This is one reason it is so enlightening to keep records from year to year. And if you look at the phenology section of this blog, you can see my start on publishing the records I have been keeping for years.
