I guess Ramadan has really cut into my Operational Tempo since I seem to have more time to write these days.
There are no leaves to change color. There is no musty damp smell of decay. But Autumn is approaching. The view of the mountains to the south is clear and crisp. The high temperature has been BELOW 100 degrees F for several days this past week. There have been regular sightings of wispy clouds.
I still hold out hope that their may be some rain sooner or later. I have yet to see one drop fall from the sky after 2 months.
Nonetheless my observations support the coming of Autumn.
