Brisk! 23 degrees this morning = woodstove cranked and chili on the stove

With an overnight low of 23 degrees in my part of the Shenandoah Valley this morning, it has shaped up to be a cool day. At 11:30 a.m. it was still 38 degrees; now at 1:30 p.m. it has risen to the mid 40s.

More leaves are turning color and many are falling. With rain predicted over the weekend, many more leaves may come off the trees. And, yet, there are still trees in the process of beginning to turn so color will continue a bit longer.

The woodstove is cranked to ward off cold ... chili is bubbling ... bread is rising by the woodstove. We are slipping into the cold days of fall that will lead to winter.

The leaves are still gorgeous so this weekend should be another nice one to visit the Valley if it doesn't rain too much.

It's autumn in the Valley ...
