Ever feel like you're running on empty
after seemingly endless summer days of high temperatures and humidity?
This summer (2022) has brought that kind of yucky weather -- you know,
the kind that produces continuous over sweating, lethargy and,
refraining from getting outside for healthy walks because of the
unhealthy high heat index?
Thank goodness that in New England, the cool crisp autumn air serves
as a wonderful remedy to an unreasonably hot summer. Add colorful
leaves, fun seasonal fairs and festivals, some apple cider and apple
and pumpkin picking and suddenly those uncomfortable weather days move
to the rear view mirror. Of course, the downside of this better
weather is that a long, cold winter follows a comforting fall.
first few snowfalls lend a pure, picturesque New England beauty of
their own but it can get old quickly when several months of being in a
gray, frozen tundra firmly and relentlessly take center stage. But
then spring comes to the rescue, giving us a rebirth of life in the
form of pleasant weather, colorful flowers blossoming and the chance to
consistently get out there to walk without discomfort.
Out for an autumn walk in York, Maine.
That's the New England way, however. We have been there and done that
with every season for what seems like an eternity Those summer, fall,
winter and spring weather changes keep us on our toes and give us
something to look forward to as one season beings to wear us down --
even if we are hardy New Englanders.
Well, maybe except autumn. What a great season!
