FOTD – A Chilly Night

It’s actually cold tonight. It was raining earlier. We had a little tornado and the power went out for about an hour. And it’s the first night of the World Series, so we were really hoping the band of storms would move out to see.

In Douglas, yesterday this maple was very bright!

It did. Game on!

Summer never wanted to end, but winter seems pretty eager to begin.

We got one and a half sunny days. Knowing how erratic our weather is, we went shooting on both days. Another day we went out, we managed to shoot during a sunny hour between the rains.


    1. This year, we didn’t have many changing here, either! Between the long hot summer and the endless rain, we just didn’t get the weather to make a special autumn. Maybe next year. It’s pretty, mind you, but it isn’t as amazing as it usually gets. It’s our best season except when it isn’t.


    1. Bob, I hope so, too. Maybe we can have an international — Aussie-Uxbridge — celebration — if “the good guys” win. We could have our own version of “Waltzing Matilda”:.

    2. Fall – Autumn, same thing. We use both terms. Autumn is more elegant, but fall is fall. I remember you writing that you won. We’re now two up. Two to go (four out of seven takes it). Now they move to Los Angeles with a day off in between. Finger crossed.

      1. / \ X !! 😉

        Onomatopoeia is when a word resembles like how it’s said but what do you call a word that describes what it DOES as in ‘Fall’?

        Go Sox! 🙂


        1. Eponym has Greek roots—it was derived from the word epōnumos, which is a combination of the prefix epi, meaning “upon,” and onoma, meaning “name.” Eponymous, being the adjective derived from the word eponym, carries the same meaning—it describes someone after whom something was named.

          Eponymous | Definition of Eponymous by Merriam-Webster

          Definition of eponymous. : of, relating to, or being the person or thing for whom or which something is named : of, relating to, or being an eponym.

          1. That’ll do! 😀

            I’d heard the word used in relation to books or films where the title is or contains a main character… but had not thought to use it for things such as ‘Fall’. Perfect! Thank you. 🙂
