Fall is in the air, not to mention all over the ground and floating in my new pool. With autumn comes cooler weather, which may seem like a blessing in this year of record-breaking heat, even for some of you who ordinarily dread the encroachment of Jack Frost and his minions. Good thing all those climate scientists who’ve been predicting global warming are wrong, eh? Otherwise, this might be a worrying trend. In my neck of the scrub brush—San Antonio, Texas—any lessening of the thermal oppression is welcomed by all and sundry.
