autumn arrives... in Minnesota, with a blast of rain.  Rivers are swollen, people are sandbagging in Southern Minnesota and having to leave their homes.  They are closing sections of Shepard Road near downtown St. Paul, and forecasting near flood stage on the Mississippi.

An interesting autumn, to say the least.

But yesterday was spectacular, everything you would want from an autumn day.  Mike was out with his camera:

The river looks rather serene, hard to imagine water can cause such destruction.

One of my favorite writers just posted a new missive on her blog, talking about autumn.  She lived in my neighborhood when I was growing up, and we have reconnected through the wonders of Facebook.

It is beautiful. please pour yourself a cup of tea, or coffee, or wine, and enjoy her reflections:
