I live right in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Our Great Lakes protect us from much of the extreme weather in other states.

Yesterday was another beautiful autumn day but unfortunately, I got called into work, so couldn't enjoy most of it. But today should be a carbon copy. It is starting out with quite a bit of ground fog which gives the landscape an interesting prospect. Skies are clear and it was chilly enough to turn the furnace on. This type of weather can certainly make one enjoy autumn but it is just too short-lived.
