This is how Virginia perceives fall:

The highs right now are in the 70s. The lows in the upper 50s. They call this cold. I’m from Iowa. This is not my idea of cold.

When you sit and contemplate the possibility of turning on some heat, you are kind of a wimp, I think.

I am getting wimpy in my old age. I’ll just throw on a sweater, though. Maybe I’ll run some warm water over my fingers.

Our heat is electric. We don’t need to elevate the energy bill just yet.

But, we’re at the halfway mark today! Sunrise and sunset at exactly 7:01 each. 12 hours of sunlight, 12 hours of night. This is my idea of meteorological fall.
