Wow!! What happened to September? Seems like it was the last day of August with a rare 90 degree day just a few days ago. Now the fall colors have creeped up on me. How did that happen? But, Oh what a beautiful time of year to commute to work by bicycle (Ask me tomorrow if I feel the same?) A morning temp of 39F and afternoon temp of 53F. This morning was particularly gorgeous with the morning sun looking very golden on the deepening colors of autumn. Climbing up out of the St Louis Rive Valley and then stopping to take in the view of the morning sun and calm waters was priceless today. I love riding my bike to work.
That statement is going to be tested the next 48 hours with 2-4"'s of heavy rain with strong winds. That's the other side of fall and the change of seasons. It definitely puts you to the test. Okay, I admit it...I'm looking forward to the challenge.
