Okay, its been unseasonably cool for the entire month of August, so I’m not necessarily referring to the ambient temperature. I’m also not referring to the fact that the humidity has been incredibly low and comfortable, even though it has been awesome. The reason I’m noticing that fall is coming is that the light has started to fade earlier in the evening. Somehow it always seems that the darkness creeps up on us suddenly this time of year. It feels like one week its light until almost 9:30 and the next its dark at 8:00.
Officially, tomorrow, we will have less than 13 hours of daylight. Twelve hours and 59 minutes to be exact. Before you know it, we’ll be driving to and from work in the dark again.
On the positive side of the equation, college football started this past weekend. Penn State played respectably and won their game easily. Michigan lost to Utah. That makes me happier than our win, even though there will be a lot of talk about how the Big Ten is not showing strong. Its week one, people, week one.
