The First Day of Fall

I can SO relate to this! Today is the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, marking the transition from summer to fall. From this point on, the nights will be longer than the days until next spring. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the vernal equinox, or the beginning of spring. In the real world, your mileage may vary, as the above video makes clear.

But autumn is often just a state of mind. Above you see the decorations I laid out before Labor Day. Having been through a few equinoxes in the South, I knew that the day would be just another day as far as the weather goes, but I was surprised this year. On Wednesday, the high temperature was 90°F (32°C). But where I am, the high temp today was 75°F (24°C) and I need to bring in the porch plants tonight. The weather is always surprising; this year I am surprised it followed the calendar. Again, your mileage may vary. -via Digg
