You know it’s true. We’ve had a series of very rainy days and the temps are dropping. I volunteered for the Crisis Pregnancy Center’s 5K run Saturday and it took me hours to finally warm up afterwards.
But there are other ways that let you know the seasons are changing rapidly:
My personal nemesis, fireweed, is in full bloom alongside roadways and our mailbox. I decided to embrace the change this year and not fret the coming change of seasons. We’ll see how that works out for me.
Another sure sign is that the City has sent out the big boy’s tractor to scrape and level my road in preparation for the coming season’s plowing sessions.
I’m never quite ready for THAT season. Even though I know it comes at approximately the same time every year it always seems to sneak up on me. However, time is short when the weather folks are telling us there is “termination dust” appearing on the mountains. Even Mt. Redoubt had a new white dress on this week after the clouds lifted.
