First day of autumn

Today was officially the first day of fall. I had back-to-back meetings which left little time outside. That's probably a good thing because even though the temps are not in the triple digits, with the humidity, it feels like it.

The weatherman said a few minutes ago that by next week the highs would be in the 70s and lows in the 50s. If I'd been in the same room with him I'd have kissed him on the mouth...not really, but it's safe to say, I'm very happy that cooler weather is on its way.

After all my meetings today, I needed a little time by the water so I headed the backroad home and stopped by the lake.

Smith Lake is pictured here. A few hundred feet beyond where this picture was taken is the earthen dam. Below the dam is where I fish for trout. I don't come to this side very often, but I decided to stop by today and get a fishing report.

There were fishermen pulling boats onto the ramp, but most of them looked hot and testy. I've learned that these guys don't like to talk when it's hot and they haven't caught any fish, so I gave them a wide berth.

I hope the first day of autumn (first day of spring for Jo-Anne and Alphie Soup who live down under.)

  1. I hope your cooler weather comes soon. I loathe and detest the sweaty season, and am so not looking forward to it. Here in Oz, we celebrate September 1 as the first day of Spring.

  6. Going to the water is a good way to relax and soothe yourself after a hot trying day.
