Time to say goodbye to Summer.

Welcome to the season of Fall/Autumn,

tomorrow - Sept. 23rd, 2014

It is the summer’s great last heat,

It is the fall’s first chill: They meet.

Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt (1836–1919)

Fall begins on September 22, at 10:29 P.M. (ET).

Here at the Almanac, we’ve had a warm end of summer. “Autumn has caught us in our summer wear,” as poet Philip Larkin says. Do you feel fall in the air?

The autumnal equinox is defined as the point at which the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south.

The word equinox in Latin means “equal night.” Daytime and nighttime are of same length. From here on out, the daylight hours start to shorten. Check your local sunrise/sunset times.

Also, temperatures will begin to drop. One definition of fall is “nights of below-freezing temperatures combined with days of temperatures below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.” Get the fall and winter weather predictions in The 2015 Almanac here.

Autumn days come and go quickly—enjoy!

So pretty and seasonal.

Love the vase.

And one can only imagine the gallons

of gas that was pumped here over the

years. The water spigot to the left is quite unique.

I would be sure that french fries were once served

from this food vendor's building. Wonder if at one

time it had wheels on it?

Cuteness overload here.

Hello Mom? We have been bad.

We are lost.

Isn't it about dinner time? Hello!!

What a quaint room this is.

Perfect for some rest day or night.

Who wants a piece, ahhh, peach pie.

A relaxing afternoon appreciating their

time together.

I would love to know what he is reading.

Did he just write it and maybe proof reading,

or perhaps a love letter from someone missed terribly.

You took the time, thank you!

What a wonderful feeling

this can be!

I wish you all a good last day of

Summer as we will welcome in

Fall tonight .... have a great day.

And now till another time, be safe in

all you do. Be aware of everything and

everyone around you at all times. A

very good habit .... take care!
