Fairbanks goes into the 20's and Fall Also Comes to Binghamton NY

Brrr, yesterday and today Fairbanks, Alaska dipped into the mid 20's.

When fall comes, Alaska doesn't hesitate a minute.

They had a "trace of" precipitation, wonder if it was rain or snow.

Day length there right now 12 hrs and 2 second.  The slide into winter continues.

Meanwhile, I had to go to Great Bend, PA today.  They are only about 10 miles south of Binghamton but the weather there can be colder than our weather. That is because, unlike Binghamton (which is in a river valley for the most part) Great Bend isn't.   Today, I was able to see the difference in fall color between the Binghamton trees and those in Great Bend. 

I must admit, I have to be dragged kicking and screaming into fall but once I am dumped into it, I manage to enjoy myself.

Also, gasoline was 10 cents a gallon cheaper in Great Bend.   Speaking of which, gas is in the $2.60's.  In Great Bend it was $2.55 in stations right off the Interstate.  Ah, those lovely NY taxes.


Oh well....let fall begin!
