Yesterday afternoon I headed out to the back yard with Max and noticed how ugly our deck looks. It’s full of wet leaves that cover not only the deck, but the patio table and chairs as well. I guess some people would consider that a beautiful fall scene, I’m just not one of them. I am not a fan of fall at all, and for one good reason. I know what season comes next and I hate that more than I hate the fall.
My favorite winters were the ones when I was living in Puerto Rico. It never bothered me that Santa might have to show up in a speedo because a 30 degree day was predicted for Christmas. A white Christmas meant nothing to me. I’m not a guy who enjoys snow or cold weather.
Another sign that fall is inching it’s way closer is the fact that I fired up the furnace for a few hours the other day. I’ve even had the heater in my vehicle on for the last few days! Hey, at least I haven’t used my command start yet!
Fall arrives two weeks from today at 8:21 A.M. Spring will arrive Monday, March 20, 2017 at 4:29 A.M.
Let the countdown begin.
