Slipping into winter

I don’t think that anyone planned it this way, but the change to “winter time” comes very hard on the heels of Halloween. I lived in Indiana for twenty years and left just as they had instituted daylight savings time (after decades of not doing it). My 2007 move also took me across a time zone boundary… so while I was used to dark winter mornings, I have yet to get used to dark winter afternoons. I almost feel like Halloween and jack-o-lanterns are heralding the coming early darkness… almost as if the pumpkins are trying to scare it away.
