That’s not to say we can’t celebrate the harvest and the season, even if neither is spectacular this year. This time of year is full of events that embrace both.
Farmers’ markets are full of seasonal bounty. There are numerous harvest dinners planned throughout the area. And the upcoming weekends are full of festivals celebrating fall, apples, pumpkins and other staples of the season.
Take the time to breathe in the crisp fall air. Take a walk through your neighborhood or drive through the county to see the autumn hues. Have a community harvest meal. Welcome leaf-peepers from out of the area.
Whatever you do, embrace the season, because in the blink of an eye it will be gone, and we will be facing the ice and snow of winter.
