Fall has come to Big D

I don't know what the NWS says but I've decided to declare that Fall has officially started here. Heavy rain yesterday followed by cool temps and clear sky this morning. No more shorts. My jeans are a little tight so I guess I'm going to have to switch back to light beer and quit eating tortillas.

We're "fallish" here also. Cool evenings, some rain lately and threat of fog. Spent the weekend up in Antioch at my son's and it was gorgeous too along the delta. However, I'd expect a little warming up period before we fully go into fall.

It comes rolling out of the Pacific, picks up moisture & heat...hits the coast
between Portland ,Oregon & Aberdeen ,Washington...gets in the "valley"
with the Cascade & Olympic mountains acting as a buffer & comes roaring up Puget Sound. Generally, trees don't fall too much since this storm system is the norm
& the roots have figured it out. A few years ago, we had the storm reverse
& came roaring down from the Strait of Juan de Fuca & British Columbia,
took out mass timber. I walked outside & knew the fear that animals feel.

You should be an adventure writer. i can feel the storm as you describe it. Almost sounds Hemingwayian. (Is that a word?)

Thanks Peter..I consider it "western writing" my heroes are Edward Abbey
and Ken Kesey. Have you read either? Do. "Sometimes a Great Notion"
is quintessential northwest prose.
