When I left for work this morning (about 7:15 AM), the sun was up. As I made my way to work, I could see that the world seemed to have turned brown. The leaves were off the trees, the plants were all brown. The stands of goldenrod stood beaten down - their golden tops withered and tan.
When I left work at 6:00 tonight, it was dark, cold and rainy. What a depressing feeling. A long day at work, cold, wet weather, poor visibility for my commute home. What an unpleasant evening. It was good to get home and see that my wife put the porch light on for me.
This is one of my least favorite times of year. We haven't hit the holiday season. There is no snow to enjoy (yes my southern readers - some of us actually like the snow!). It is dark when I get home, so I can't get a ride on my bike. The world is shutting down, getting ready for the coming winter.
Like I always say:
What do you think?
