Resident says, "Change of colors,change of scene, I like it."
Fall items have reached grocery stores. You can find apples, squash, sweet potatoes and special bakery items.
But stores aren't the only ones preparing for Autumn, there's outside work that needs to be done.
Groundskeeper Ron Reuter says, "...we're out here to help get the cemetery cleaned up for winter."
It's not so bad on a fall day to be outside working.
Reuter says, "I like this time of the season. Good weather, the temperature, the sunshine."
You can see nature changing its colors, and you can smell Autum in the air and it's your last chance to enjoy it before ponds like these freeze over, but why is fall, fall?
Meteorologist Randy Brock says, "The Autumnal Equinox is the point in which the sun is directly above the equator, and the earth is always tilted on an axis and as it orbits around the sun, we're at that point in orbit right now where the sun is directly above the equator."
This is the time of the year when days get shorter and nights get longer, but hopefully we enjoy before it gets colder.
