Autumn Arrives

Yesterday and today were wonderful.  Lots of clouds, some sun and high humidity.  Well, high for up here in the mountains...54%.  And, our highs were only in the 50's F! 
I found a couple of small maples down by the lake that are starting to get brilliant color.
Just in time for the Autumn Equinox!
Sadly, we didn't get a drop of rain, even though the San Gorgonio mountain range got over an inch.  That range and the one I live in, the San Bernardino mountain range, are only about 50 miles apart ~ as the cloud travels :D
The clouds certainly looked like they had plenty of rain inside them as they passed over.  But they were selfish clouds, and did not give these parched mountains any rain. 
This weekend temperatures are supposed to shoot back up into the 80's, and dangerous Santa Ana winds will be blowing, which means high wildfire danger.  So, I'm really enjoying right's 44 degrees, the cats are snoozing in front of the fireplace where a cheery fire is burning, and I'm drinking a cup of hot cocoa.  Bliss!

  1. Enjoy the wonderful mountain weather before the next heat wave. We didn't get any rain either where I live in Orange County, although I'm told the desert near Joshua Tree got some.

  2. Drinking a hot chocolate is bliss. Excellent photos posted on your blog this week.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
