Autumn in Michigan

In the area where I work and live, the change from summer to autumn is not foretold by the date on the calendar. It’s not even the changing of the leaves on the trees. No, here on the Michigan lakeshore, the sign of autumn’s arrival is when people begin pulling their boats out of the water.

So just to let you all know, as witnessed by the boat hanging in the slings when I pulled into work this morning… Autumn has officially arrived in Michigan.
