We’re finally getting a couple days of cooler, drier air, so it’s time to break out the autumnal tunes.

I think just about everybody in New Orleans is in a better mood today. It won’t last, but we’ll enjoy it while it’s here.

What passes for autumn in the subtropics really doesn’t compare to what I grew up with in the Midwest. I got reacquainted with the season when we were evacuated for Katrina. You know, stuff like this:

Reflected Trees

You just don’t get displays like that down here. Our friend James, born and raised in New Orleans, visited us there in Bloomington and was absolutely blown away by the fall foliage. He’d never seen that in forty-plus years of life.

I miss it more each year. But I will not miss snow flurries in November.
