In the end, this may be the most important thing about frost: Frost slows us down. In spring, it tempers our eagerness. In fall, it brings closure and rest. In our gotta-go world–where every nanosecond seems to count–slowness can be a great gift. So rather than see Jack Frost as an adversary, you could choose to greet him as a friend.

I was thinking the same thing, especially since it got down to 49 degrees last night! But the colors in the fields have said fall for weeks now. sigh,

It’s a gorgeous SUMMER day here — 64°F with cool, clear breezes. With nearly a month of summer left–and though I love the fall–this is a PERFECT summer day to me, and I wish they were all like this. 🙂 Much better than the heat and humidity.
