We are in for a change.

We are in for a change.

I have my sliding door open here in Sandy UT to enjoy the outside night air. In the last few minutes I have been listening to falling moisture. We started the day with (light) rain. This is certainly different to our norm in our high altitude desert location where rain is often recorded in drops per acre and our ten inches of rain is "ten drops ten inches apart".

National forecast maps allow us to anticipate rain all over Utah, with the TV versions being supported by the appropriate moving graphics. Often I can look outside and wonder where it all went.

Crickets are obvious in the night air.

We are promised a drop in temperatures in the next 48 - 72 hours with the possibility of snow at higher altitudes, of which we can see quite a few from here.

I tend to a forecast of "your guess is as good as mine" and wait (patiently) to see what Nature provides.

6 am is now sure to be "headlight necessary" dark where only recently it was "exercise friendly" light suggesting that the Daylight Saving Clock is now out of kilter. (We are due  for that change in November ~ a month later than a few years ago). Rain and  morning dark appear to be the promised changes.

I can but appreciate what happens as it happens.

Larry, another interesting post with your observations and what your senses are telling you...... yes, a change is in the air!  Haven't heard any predictions about winter.... but I'm like you.... open the door or look at the window and see what's on the horizon...

Teri - I still test wind direction and speed with a wet raised finger. Weather? Yes we are having some.

Change is inevitable. As for the weather, your prediction is as good as anyones! Think of all the experience your finger has! Enjoy your day!

We sure do need some rain in Texas! It has been really dry. The only green in my yard is where the soaker hose is placed to help the foundation and the little spots I have watered! Need more soaker hoses!

Wayne - my finger is rather chilled at the moment, but it still works.

Sussie - almost midnight and the rain is coming down. Temperatures took a dive. 40s promised for tomorrow. I expect to see snow in the daylight. Green will soon be back in your color charts.
