Funny, I was just glancing back at archives from a year ago and apparently this time last year we had had some snow.
I say "funny", because this week (last week) is the first time I've thought "ok, NOW it's Fall." Because this week it was noticably cold.
Yes, I turned my radiator on a few weeks ago, and yes I put an extra blanket on a few weeks ago, but this last week? All the extra blankets were needed and windows got closed and the radiator is getting turned up and I needed gloves and a hat to be outside.
It got suddenly cold.
So yeah, now it's cold. Now it's the cold we'll likely have for the next few months. And that's in part due to the clear skies (that bring glorious sun) so I suppose the rainy days will be warmer, but still... the onset of cold felt very sudden. It's as if we got half way through Fall before actually getting Fall weather.
