Indian Summer

Autumn seemed be coming on strong a couple of weeks ago. We had some rain, with chilly days and cold nights. The trees are all dressed up in their fall colors, but now the weather has gone warm. It’s that season we used to call Indian summer. The days are warm, sunny and still. Barely a breeze stirs the oak branches in their seasonal finery. The sun stays low in the sky, seeming to hug the hilltops as it makes its daily journey across the sky. Although the sun is warm, it does not last long; just few brief hours before the golden glow of twilight deepen into the shadows of night. Winter is coming. +norcal +Indian-Summer +weather +Autumn +Fall

Yes the last few days it has been warmer. It will be a nice respite before winter comes marching in full force. I think this winter will be one of the worst in awhile.

Here in California, we are hoping for a very wet winter. It does not sound fun, but we will put up with it because we really need the water.

@norcal Yes I just hope for not too much damage from mudslides. A few rains ago the whole 58 got covered in mud. Whole semi trucks were swallowed by it. It took weeks to clear it all away. I agree we need the water but sometimes great droughts end in great floods.

@chance216 - I saw that. It will not affect me too much, I live in a high area. So, it is easy for me to say that I want a lot of rain.

I would think it would be much warmer where you are, how cold does it get there? Here, the absolute coldest it ever gets is about 15 degree F, which would be -9.44 C.
