Winter-like weather in Indy puts a damper on our balmy fall

DEEP INTO AUTUMN. It had been nice. It had been relatively warm. It had hardly rained. Up until this week, I hadn't worn a but a light jacket. Now I'm wearing a coat and gloves. Daytime temps in the mid-30's and nightime lows in the 20's in mid-November is a rude awakening. I am sure there will be some warmer days throughout what remains of autumn (officially, we've a month to go!), but winter has warned us: brace yourself, bundle up, and get ready for a long haul.

CANAL TOW PATH. I snapped this photo as Chris Province and I rode along the Canal Tow Path near Butler University last week. Most of the leaves on these trees are now down, even though our first frost was late and the leaves clung to the trees longer than usual. The Canal is a great place to ride or run, even in fall and winter.
