Mary Poppins and the Weather

First let me say, I am not a weather expert. BUT I notice alot of things that happen in nature, like clockwork every year. I would even go as far as to say I am at least as accurate as the guy on TV getting paid to do weather. LOL For example I get migraines with certain types of rain storms. Its accurate enough that people who want to wash there cars now call me to see if I have a headache. Every year in October we have one day in particular, and for lack of a better name I have always called it the Mary Poppins Day. Remember in the movie when the Admiral was on the roof top and the wind pick up and the weather vane went whirling around, bringing about a change. And at the end when that weather vane went whirling the other way. It was time to go fly a kite and change was in the air again. Alas Mary Poppins had to leave. Mary had been there for the season and helped make everything right. Well, back to my one special October day each year. AND today is the day. Its super windy and its comes from the other direction, no clouds, just really windy. The weather is much cooler, for us in the desert anyway. Just a blustery day as Pooh would say. Well, what this means is, its officially now fall. Good bye to the summer season. It wont be over 100 anymore. Just in case you were wanting some high tech info Mr. Weatherman? LOL We dont have the obvious change of seasons you see in most other places, so you have to look very careful for subtle signs. This is my story and I am sticking to it..... LOL

Hi Gail,
I read this after show and tell. I do love your jewelry; as always, it is just beautiful. But it was fun to read about you and the weather. I would hate knowing it was going to rain by getting a migraine, though. :O(
