"It was summer just yesterday. . ."

     Have you ever heard the phrase "If you don't like the weather in [name your state here], wait a few minutes?" It's very true here in Utah. Just two days ago, it was extremely sunny with temperatures at high 70's-mid 80's; you know, just average summer-to-fall conditions for here. Yesterday, it rained almost all day, and dropped 20 to 30 degrees! I know I wasn't prepared, and neither were others I know (their names will be withheld). One interesting sight I saw was looking at the Rocky Mountains and seeing the entire top half covered with snow, and the other half still green. It was a vivid contrast! I would have taken a picture, but my camera's still down for the count. Oh well; just try to imagine it. It may look better that way, I don't know.
     As I look to the future and work in the present, I have a moment of silence for the fall that was taken from us much too early.
     And, moment's over. Back to work again.
