“Still Feels Like Summer”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
I know today was the fall equinox and many of my fellow bloggers wrote interesting posts about this milestone for 2009. However, here in the upper Gulf Coast region, it was anything but autumnal. When I left for work at 6:10 AM, it was already 76 degrees and the humidity was awful. Instead of cool, crisp autumn days (or at least the hint of an autumn), we had a high of 92 degrees and 94% humidity, so it still feels like summer.
Instead of autumn leaves, we are seeing tropicals blooming as if it was still July.
If it wasn’t for the angle of the sun, we wouldn’t know that fall should be coming here soon. Maybe by the winter solstice, the weather will finally be cooler and drier.
