If all works as it should, as of the time of this posting (September 22, 2013 @ 3:44pmCDT) it will officially be Autumn! If you want a quick read about the how’s and why’s of it all, TimeAndDate.com has a pretty good explanation as does WikiPedia which has quite a bit more information.
This is my absolute favorite time of year! Most people I know prefer the spring or summer months, but I feel absolutely rejuvenated when that first cool, crisp morning arrives and the leaves are changing. Living in Texas our cooler weather comes later than for most people and doesn’t stay as long so I have to enjoy it while I can. Yesterday morning for the first time in months I woke up to it being just 60° outside which prompted me to open the windows once I got home from my morning Starbucks run.
What does this have to do with anything? Nothing. I just am happy about it.
