Autumn Arriving in East Texas
East Texas- The knowledge that summer is gone and winter is coming is everywhere now, on the northern half of Earth’s globe.

The shorter days are bringing cooler weather, a chill is in the air, people have stopped wearing white and wild things are putting on their winter coats. Fall 2012 begins tomorrow, September 22, 10:49 A.M. EDT in the Northern Hemisphere.
