I was struck how the snowstorm arrived less than 12 hrs after the World Series ended. I imagine this occurred to someone beside me today. I’m reminded also that earlier this fall, the weather turned crisp as soon as Labor Day had passed. I don’t believe in nature as mechanism, nor for the most part do I harbor notions of events that impute intrinsic meaning to them. Still, it makes me think how odd it is that these events have lined up so neatly with the calendar. Meantime, I’ll think of this as the year it snowed before Halloween.
