Thrill of the chill finds no quarter

It's cold again.

As the third quarter of 2009 ends today, the remaining quarter is shaping up like a football game. We gotta rally to win.

I want Brett Favre weather to line up over center for the fourth quarter, ready to rip bright sunshine and comforting warmth. But even Brett can't pull a Hail Mary on the chilly weeks ahead...the season of clouds and gloom is ready to knock down the pass.

There are the optimists who would suggest embracing the season...tripping to cider mills, taking a fall color tour, or decorating for Halloween. And I'm right with them!

But the thought of cold rain, premature snow flurries and perma-dark afternoons and evenings is already popping the goosebumps. I'll take two blankets and call you in the morning.

  1. Fall is my favorite season of the year. I enjoy getting out the corduroy slacks and warm sweaters, and having a big pot of chili on the range,or my trusty Le Creuset casserole loaded with boeuf bourguignon simmering in the oven while watching a football game.
