Just 19 Days Later

I can't believe a mere 19 days ago I was at he beach and happily frolicking in the waves. It was a perfect day for the beach and we were able to go out and enjoy the last day of summer weather.

Now it is sock weather and I'm wearing a sweater as I write this post. I can't imagine willingly stepping into the ocean now. Yesterday the upstairs' heating system kicked on for the first time with the annual burning off of the dust on the heater coil and thus setting off the smoke detectors. The summer weather is clearly over here in central Virginia.

It's more than usually nippy here, as well. We never did get a real autumn, just an immediate switch from above normal to below normal. Today we have the added fun of high winds, with the accompanying wind chill readings.

I like winter, and even I'm not ready for this quite this soon.

I like winter as well, but this transition is a bit shocking to the system.
