By our effete bayside standards, tonight counts as a cold night. The temperature is dropping into the 30s here and below freezing in places farther from the water. For the next couple of days, anyway, we won’t be getting out of the 40s here. The scene above is from several days ago. The high was probably in the low 60s, perhaps the last day of a prolonged beautiful dry warm autumn. It already seems like that season is over.
