Warm Embrace

New England is well into fall yet today the mercury hit 74℉. It’s supposed to be warm again tomorrow, despite that the typical average high for this time in November is 55℉. Mind you, I’m not complaining. It’s no secret that I hate being cold, so this is like a warm embrace after frost on the ground last week.

But even to me this is weird. The leaves are falling rapidly; the colors past their peak. The trail in the woods where I take my dogs is barely discernible under the leaf-blanket. And so are the tripping hazards.


Which dog do you think is on the trail?

Today, I was traipsing through the leaves in shorts and that is strange, no matter how much my body and soul love this kind of weather.

    It has been warm here in the Midwest, too. I planted my bulbs yesterday and have been enjoying sunny walks through the glorious leaf carpets. Pretty sure it won’t last…

    Enjoy the warmth while it lasts!

    It’s finally cooling down here, and there is even a little rain in the forecast. Hoping for so much more…

      I hope you get a ton of rain! I have been in those draughts and it’s no fun.

    Dropped to 71 today, and about 65 tonight. Sweatshirt time in CA.

    That looks beautiful for a trail walk! Winters must be hard. We don’t get cold here in Bangalore, India so now I am used to the usual pleasant weather – neither hot nor cold.

      It’s pretty now but I don’t like what’s coming next!

    Hi Stacie,
    I tried to add my link to the YW NaBloPoMo grid but the grid is closed. Thanks for the suggestion though!

    Stacie, my sister lives in CT and was ecstatic that this year she got to Halloween without any snow. The warm weather this time of year is unnerving though.

    Also extra warm here down south, though I think it’s coming to an end. The dog on the right is on the trail?
