Fall officially began this morning here in Dallas. After months of sleeping without a blanket, I was forced to use one this morning because the temperature was too cold without one. Of course, it might have helped if I wasn't using the ceiling fan but then it's been way too hot down here for me to do much sleeping without using the ceiling fan.
Not that “cold” means a lot in Texas right now. Temperatures are still in the 80s in the afternoon, and my girlfriend and I were able to go out last night without either of us needing to wear a sweater or jacket. But in a few weeks we probably will not be able to do that. And by November such nights were definitely be rare.
