If you haven't lived in the midwest, you may not have to ask this question. We have "skipped" or "fast-forwarded" fall many years in the past. But we always hope we will have it a longer time, rather than skip it. Our weather in Mason City is in the 40's for highs. By this weekend we might even get snow flurries with our rain showers.
I was hoping winter would stay away until after my birthday, which is Nov. 8. But at least we don't have tropical storms or hurricanes here! I hope you enjoy the fall if you still have it.
