hello fall September 22nd, 2009
Happy Autumnal Equinox! At least, that’s what my calendar marks as today, September 22nd. The foggy, dreary weather outside today somewhat supports that, although I much prefer to think of fall as bright earthy colors and crisp breezes, Oktoberfest brews, tailgating, and, of course, candy corn. Either way, summer is technically over, and the sun will cross the equator today, from north to south, leaving us with exactly 12 hours of lightness and 12 hours of darkness. That means that by tomorrow, the nights will start becoming longer than the days. I’ve certainly noticed it happening already as I’ve been getting up around 6am, when Bowser first starts “barking” to go outside, and it’s still pitch black.
So today’s photo, we’ve posted about before , although I thought this version definitely says “goodbye summer” with the sun, and “hello fall” with the leaf. Time to start brainstorming Halloween costumes!
