The Smell of Fall

After the two weeks of 95 plus degree heat, it finally happened.

Up early with the kids and the dog, the sun was coming up to the East and an nice overnight thunderstorm calmed the air for first time in weeks.  It was the first time in a long time that the smoke from wildfires wasnt the first thing your senses perked to.

Folks lament the passing of summer and the upcoming fall.  Kids rue the day when back to school ads hit mass media.  Most hustle to get their last taste of summer in.

Sportsmen on the other hand, cant make fall come fast enough

Opening the door to the deck after the kids were squared away with Thomas the Train, the smell of fall smacked me in the face.

All I could do was smile.  We're on the doorstep of the sweet spot of the year

Get out and enjoy it
