First Day of Autumn

I'm not one who normally marks the change of seasons. The seasons in Texas hardly ever change with the calender. Today was different. It was dark when I took Gryffindor out for his walk this morning, which was odd, and it was also chilly. I wanted a sweater. That doesn't often happen here in September. But it happened today. "Oh fun," I thought. "It actually feels like autumn on Autumn day."

Of course, the cool was just a prelude to a rain storm. It poured this morning. Buckets. My fun was washed away when I found myself standing on a flooded sidewalk, clutching my $5 umbrella and waiting for the bus to come by. Still, it was something very autumnish.
