A Nip in the Air

Fall is definitely on its way. The air has a certain bite to it in the mornings that wasn't there before, even in the lousy cool days of summer. Fall, or autumn if you prefer, is my favourite season. I think it's related to going back to school; that it was the start of a new year. In Edmonton, one of my favourite things was how it seemed overnight the trees would turn colour and there would be these bright bright yellow leaves everywhere, lighting up the parks and streets. In Munich, it was never so sudden, it was a far more gradual process. But what I enjoyed in Munich was the length of the season, an actual season rather than at best 6 weeks and then winter in Canada. (Which reminds me of a joke. Do you know the 4 seasons in Edmonton? Already Winter, Winter, Still Winter and Construction) I don't know what I will like best about fall here in England, but I look forward to it none the less.

FYI, It snow yesterday (last day of summer) in Calgary.

I'm living on the coast and I am not moving back, Susan.

Conkers, conkers are the best bit about autumn, no matter whether you live in Germany or in Britain.
