And just like that, it is fall. Or so it feels as the temperature this morning was 47 degrees and the trees on First Street have a tired look before they change from previously verdant greens to vibrant reds and yellows. It is just a feeling since, intellectually, I know the earth never paused in its orbit. Today is different because the calendar says so and science agrees. Today the earth’s axis is neither tilted toward or away from the sun and we enjoy an equal amount of daylight and nighttime.
