Changing colors,dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes: do these mainstays of Fall fill your heart with warmth–or with dread?
Colorful leaves, pumpkin pies, spice lattes, reminds me of Fall and then the dreaded winter.
Winter for me spoils the fun of Fall, it’s visit gives me images of snow, short days, howling winds and blizzard. It feels like I haven’t recuperated from the chilly winters, icy driveways and streets of last winter and it’s back again, a time of the year which brings memories of the difficult time we had clearing our driveways and soon after blocked by the plow to clear the streets and sidewalks.
I’m afraid Fall does not please me, it evokes the memory of winter! 😦
Changing colors,dropping temperatures, pumpkin spice lattes; do these mainstays of fall fill your heart with warmth— or with dread?
After an extremely hot summer, fall is a welcome change, the temperatures cool off , the leaves change into a variety of colors, all this is a pleasant sight for a little while,but when the leaves fall on the ground, the bare branches of trees, immediately reminds me winter is ready to change its place with fall.
This is the time it is scary. the early snowfall in November, transforms nature into a white blanket of snow everywhere, on trees, on the ground on the roofs of houses, on the streets, children have a wonderful time playing with this free plaything.
Then it starts to be dreadful, the short days, the strong wind and heaps and heaps of snow, covering everything is no longer a happy sight, with doorways, driveways packed with snow, the task of removing the white stuff is an ordeal, no one enjoys.
The slippery roads, the unploughed streets makes moving hazardous. are a characteristic feature of winter and I do not enjoy fall because I know winter is not far behind.
