Last Monday, it was 107 degrees (officially) here in the desert. My thermometer read 109, but what's a couple of degrees? Today's forecast is 80. Think about it...from 107 to 80 in one week! That's a big change. And, our bodies haven't adjusted yet. So, this morning, the kids will have to bundle up for school and I'll take a sweater (it's only in the 50's here so far...) Up in the mountains, the leaves continue to turn yellow and the fields are fallow. Mellow Yellow for Monday, October 5, 2009.
