something about autumn.


My favorite season of the year while in Tennessee was autumn. The days would become crisp, all the hills filled with trees would turn into brilliant oranges and reds and yellows, and for some reason, the smell of cinnamon rolls and blueberry muffins would intensify from the Little Debbie Factory. A hoodie was not required but was allowed if wanted, volleyball intramurals began, and thoughts of Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks lingered in the air.


In southern California, the season of autumn consists of 90 degree beach days and 80 degree concert nights; the leaves don't change color but still fall, and a cold front consists of breezy 70 degree weather. The most rain we've seen in 47 years was two days of consistent but soft and powdery downfall.. that was enough to submerge the city of Los Angeles under water.


I wonder if Autumn will come in Winter instead..?
