Dear Erratic NYC Weather Gods,

November 20, 2011

…Since I moved here you’ve given me a July heat wave, an August hurricane, a super swampy September, and snow on Halloween. This past week you were so frigid I thought we’d skipped Fall entirely.

But today, all I have to say is thank you. The sun is firing up the red and yellow leaves that remain with passion. I’m walking to the bus stop and smiling because I’m not wearing a coat. It’s the kind of Fall day that lives in a fevered February fantasy and will keep me warm all winter long.

Perhaps tomorrow will be cold and blustery. Maybe even so cold it makes the back of my neck and my scalp ache in longing for a hat, hood, or scarf to cover it. But today, today is an unexpected blessing. And I’m grateful for the very unpredictability of our NYC weather gods.
