With the exception of the "official" first
day of fall.

Based on where you live what's the drop dead giveaway?

For me its knowing the Crows are back.

Every year we have this infestation of crows that litter the trees
near home.

The big giveaway is the degree of Crow "poop", that lines the
sidewalk, and the running trails.

BTW its a conspiracy of Crows.

Anyway, the maple in my back yard starts to turn red around Labor
day. Need for a sweater in the evening, the word "snow" pops up in local forecast, halloween decorations, apples, rainy days, cold breezes.

Upstate NY is VERY nice this time of year.

1. The walnuts are dropping on the neighbors trees. The kids pick them up, peel the green layer off of them and stain their shirts. The kids pelt each other with walnuts. One or two crying children a day run down the street with black streaks across their shirts and their faces from the oil from the walnuts.

b. Despite the cooler outside temps, my building still has air conditioning on so it's causing more headlights to turn on, if you get my drift. Typical for this time of year around here. If i didn't think that the planning and implementation was beyond mental capacity of those in the building, I'd think it was a male plot.

The sun is lower in the sky.

There's a different quality to the light; hazier and not so intense.

The leaves are turning. Yes folks, we actually have trees here, and they do change color.

The biggest one of all...Less daylight hours!

Shocked

For the record, it was a woman who brought breasts into this post!
