Guess what?  Winter's coming!  

I didn't believe it....I refused to believe it....for most of the fall.  I basked in the cool autumn sunlight, did my chem homework outside on a lawn chair, and desperately tried to stretch out summer.  I went running outside.  I walked to some errands.  I kept the sweaters under my bed for as long as possible.   I wore my thin fall jacket.

It worked, for awhile.

And then this month called November, which happened to be right after October, came.  And then I couldn't play the game anymore.  Winter is coming!  

The night falls quickly now.  The air is crisp and frigid.  The wind blowing through my hair is no longer warm but frosty.  Frost covers the once green grass.  And so...

The sweaters came out from under the bed, warm drinks replace icy ones, and the thermostat is cranked higher.  Out comes the puffy winter jacket.  

Yes, it does indeed appear that winter is coming!
