This week, in the Northern Hemisphere, autumn begins for real. It has been feeling like autumn for many days with the cool nights and the leaves falling to the ground. Thursday, September 22 the autumnal equinox* will make it really autumn even though to meteorologists, meteorological fall started on September 1. This is all very confusing but Mom says it is the bestest season of all 4 (Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring) and we are taking full advantage everyday.
*At this point, the Earth’s tilt is moving away from its maximum lean toward the Sun; its rays are aiming directly at the equator.
