Autumn - A Contrast

In many parts of the country, the impending arrival of Autumn is characterized by:

1. The days grow shorter.
2. The nights are cooler.
3. The leaves change colors and drop from the trees.

In California, the arrival of Autumn is indicated by:

1. The days grow shorter.
2. A hot dry wind blows from the north east.
3. The humidity drops.
4. It grows hotter.
5. Everything catches on fire.

Notice the difference?

Our time spent in Yuma and San Antonio showed us a whole different version of the "seasons"
