Turning

We are starting to turn the corner into winter. Summer left and winter arrived bypassing Autumn it seems. The brightly colored orange, yellow and red leaves glistened for a week. Now they are gone, while others turn pee green. It snowed twice in September and once in October. The ground is still too warm, but the air has turned a chill. September saw only 60 hours of daylight the entire month and we had record rainfall. The corner is being turned with drops in temperature and a decrease in daylight. It has been noticeable to me. Daylight is arriving later and leaving sooner. The picture below was taken at 7:15 this morning. By the end of November our sun won't rise until about 10am and it will be gone by 4pm. We are turning. This is the beginning.

I was sorry to see daylight savings time end. It's getting dark so early, and getting noticeably earlier everyday!
