After an extended summer, fall has finally arrived in our nation's capitol. I woke this morning to the news that temperatures will reach the mid-60s. Fall is my favorite season, and a large part of my excitement about my fellowship was spending this particular season in an East Coast city, where fall actually exists. So I was beginning to despair that climate change had already ruined the opportunity for me.
I love sweaters, boots, tweed and wool, my winter coat and knee socks. With the way weather's a-changin', I feel like this might be my last chance to wear them with any regularity!
