Our first legit cool front of the season is blowing across the prairie this evening. It’s been a long, wet summer. Hot, too, but we’ll remember this one more for being wet. Memories of the great August flood will endure, but that super-sensational rain event notwithstanding, the entire season from June through August was rainy.
The silver lining this late summer/early fall of the season is really not silver—-it’s orange and brown, gray and pink. September sunsets splash across the sky, awash in autumn’s smokey harvest hues. Good bye, summer. Welcome, fall.
