Yes. And I too am annoyed at having to get rid of my down comforter and put it back on every week. It is so comfy that I tend to want to keep it on too long and it takes a very ungood night of too-hot semi-sleep to get me to put it away again.

This isn't technically an autumn picture, but since it was taken in some suburb of Richmond in December I suppose that's like some earlier month up north here, as far as temperature. And it looks pretty and I want to share it with all these other pretty pictures.

Southern California is celebrating Autumn by being on fire. Brilliant, colored leaves covering the ground? Hah! Nothing but ash for us!

My mom prevented a downed power line from setting anything more than a few backyard bushes and a fence on fire today. She just happened to be in the right place at the right time to call the Fire Department. One of my aunts lives pretty close to one of the fires in San Diego, but I hear she hasn't had to evacuate yet. My community college's equestrian department has taken in over 120 horses from nearby ranches that are in the fire areas.

Typically, Autumn is only moderately burning for us (some asshole always sets something alight in October). I can't tell you the last time it's been this bad, though.
Pursue happiness, with diligence.

Ah I love Autumn, tis my favourite season. Alas, this year we [in England] had a weird summer, with torrential rain (yes, more than usual. Contrary to popular belief, we don't get permanent non-stop rain all year round) and the worst floods in living memory. As a result, the trees have already taken quite a beaten and the colour of the leaves are now all dark and gloomy looking. Oh well, there's always next year!

Brooms=Because we swept the series. That means we won all of the games in that series.

The cops were there to keep us from burning stuff. Just an excessive show of force. They tackled a lot of people who weren't causing problems and were generally jerky.

that happened 2 or 3 new years ago. a band known for taking their drums to the streets and jamming out w/ fans after shows took their drums to the streets and were jamming out with fans after their show. this was in new years eve, in an area barricaded off from cars for pedestrian use. they were pedestrians. with drums. they (along with about 3 of my friends + others i didnt know) got pepper sprayed in the face and several of them were forced to the ground and zip-tied face down on the pavement.

i can understand cops being edgey with that many people around, drinking and having a good time, but that was ridiculous. the "fans" were early 20s up to 40s and 50s hippies and drum circle regulars. hardly threatening, unless you count chicks wearing flowery dresses and dread locks as threatening. *off-topic gripe sorry*

in 1938 swedish military recuits opened fire on demonstrants for some unclear reason. Ever since Police Brutality is none excistent when ever large masses are gathered. Thankfully i suppose (there are however alot of security companies with ... questionable moral fiber).
Also life in the streets like drumcircles and stuff is awesome in the autumn, helps lift the darkness a while.
