Sigh . . . Appearances can be so deceiving . . .

This morning, at 7, it appears to be a bright, sunshiny day. Indeed, it is a bright, sunshiny day.

But upon closer observation — i.e. getting out of bed and looking out the window — there is mist on the lake and the outdoor thermometer is reading 7C (44F).

Yet the calendar says it is August 17 — not October 17.

Sigh . . . what doth this portend?

Snow by Sept. 1?
