We had one of the most beautiful sunsets I've seen in quite a while. I was slow digging out the camera, so I missed getting a shot of the double rainbow. The sky was still quite vivid though.

OK, I know officially it's autumn but it's 75F and humid as hell and everyone is still in their summer clothes. Leaves are falling off the trees, school is open, Rite Aid has an aisle devoted to Halloween candy and costumes and I just made Thanksgiving plans. Fuck off and die, summer.

What she said!

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Rainstorm, windstorm, tomatoes have ripened, plums have been picked. Heater went on a few nights ago. Mid 60's during the day, 50 at night. Trees are starting to color. But we still have earthquakes and horrible consensus politics.

Once again, I will be the outlier. :blush: I hope it stays warm like this until whatever date heating season starts. When we're in between and it's proper cool-to-cold fall weather, we have not heat and we freeze. Not just at night (got a warm quilt to take care of that) but during the day when we're trying to work and it gets down into the very low 60s indoors.

And, um, now that I have a short haircut, the humidity doesn't make be look like Medusa. :ph43r:

Rumor has it that today was our last day of triple digits for the year. We broke a lot of records, none of them pleasant. On the upside, it actually sprinkled for about 20 minutes this evening.

Not so fast, missie, looks as though we're in for possibly Day 89 and day 90 of triple digits. Who are you to complain, you of cross-the-pond-hopping fame!!!!

When I woke up at 6 and saw some of the first glimmers of sun in several days I emailed the office to say I'd be working from home, went back to sleep for a few hours and then took a nice long walk on the Highline and through the West Village. Of course now it's getting overcast again and the forecast promises rain beginning tonight until at least through Tuesday. At least it's cooled off a little, it's 76F and not as humid.

Can we start the winter thread yet? It's 10C here with strong winds (50+km/hr, but gusts of 70+km/hr). When I did my 10k walk this morning, I was told it was 4C but with the windchill, -2C. Rumour says it will snow early this week.
