A Cool Evening!

Well, I think the desert summer has finally phased into the desert fall….and it’s cool! Really! The temp is dipping down to the low 70’s! Now, I know that doesn’t sound very cold to some folks, but the sudden shift in temps is a bit of a shock to us desert dwellers! Our outdoor apparel has changed….We had to trade our shorts and flip-flops for sweats and slippers.  Sitting on the porch, enjoying Todd’s Backyard is perfect this time of year. The crisp air, the earlier sunsets,  the smell of wood fires in outdoor fireplaces. The other night was a great example…

The harvest moon came out early, while the sun was still setting, providing  the perfect scenery for our 5:30 happy hour!

While the moon was rising to the East, the sun was setting in the West…

And looking just South, we got this view…

The recent storms have really made this fall somewhat unusual. The rain is what really cooled us down all of a sudden. And with it, brought some spectacular  visual leftovers! We hope it will be a wet winter, as it has been a wet year, since the beginning of last spring! Todd’s backyard may turn into a prickly rain-forest! Now, that might be cool!
