Fall is happening 4 hours north of here

October 9, 2012 |  Category:   life travels

Kind of amazing what a difference a few hours north makes. Upstate NY is already like a Fall wonderland while the city is still mostly green. The transformation was also helped by a 25 degree temperature drop – we were in sandals one day and heavy Fall jackets the next. It was strange to feel the cold and the chill as it had been so long. You almost sort of forget what that’s like. It made us feel impatient for the leaves to turn here in the city and get into the season, but at the same time it also seems so fleeting. September is over, we completely missed apple picking this year, and there’s just 2 and a half months left of the year.


Now that we’re at this point in the calendar, can I just say that 2012 can just suck it? I’m hoping that 2013 will be much better. We need it to get better.

    Fall photos look beautiful. I miss fall on the east coast. And….for many people I know 2012 was a really really difficult year (me included as my mother passed away at the beginning of it & the rest of it just moved past so quickly I can’t believe it’s fall). I too am looking forward to a quiet winter & 2013. Some years just don’t go as well, and that’s ok I think, still stuff to be learned from it all…

    I agree, 2012 can suck it …. getting busy doing what I can to prep a clearer path for 2013 … (whatever that means)

    I totally missed apple picking as well! Did I not realize September was SEPTEMBER? I guess it felt like an extra August. I’m ready to toast 2013 whenever you are… fresh start!
