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.img_0636
