As it turns out, the last day of Summer hit 83F in the 216. When Autumn officially arrived, it OFFICIALLY arrived.
66 was the high for the first day. And we hit that before I left for the gym, which is at 04:45. It ended up going down to 54.
Basically a 30 degree drop in a 24 hour period.
It's not that I mind 54-66 weather. I wasn't really prepared for it, even though I was. I read the weather report - kind of. I focused on the temps and if there'd be any rain. I just didn't consider the wind.
My lunchtime walk was chilly. But I still did it, because I still need to lose weight and it is the only time I get out of my office. It is as important mentally as physically.
At least on the walk to my car is was sunny. Ditto, for the most part, on the evening dog walk. You can see the clouds and the chill in the air.
Shep is loving it. 710 said he stayed outside for almost five hours yesterday morning, refusing to come in. Hey - I'm glad he's enjoying as much time outdoors as possible.
So I sit here writing this while wearing fuzzy pants with dogs on them, and a shirt with long sleeves. Yesterday (now two days ago) it was shorts and a t-shirt.
No doubt we will have other days in the 70s and 80s, but it sure feels like Fall now.
