Red’s favorite season is, without a doubt, Fall. In much of Texas it lasts from November 1 to Christmas. Even a month of a really good Fall is worth waiting all year long for. The official end of summer is typically more of way station on the route to another month of summer-like weather. But on the last day of summer, there is hope in the air that the last of the punishing heat is on the wane and that the days that make you want to live in this state are on the way. So celebrate the Autumnal Equinox tomorrow morning at 3:22 a.m. and maybe just maybe Fall will come a little early this year. And while we typically don’t get the spectacular Fall displays common to other parts of the U.S., Red predicts that there will be some decent Fall color in Texas this year. We deserve it.
