Goodbye and Good Riddance

The temperatures have cooled, the rain has come (for some) and now the calendar agrees; Autumn has come, leaving behind one of the most cruel summers in remembrance.I figured  the summer of 1980 would be my old-timer's reference for when things were 'really hot' but I stand corrected. After one of the most brutal winters in history, with record snowfall and low temps (-31 in Nowata, only-18 here) inside of six months we were savaged by drought and record sustained triple digit temps.
  Farewell, cruel summer, hello autumn. Hopefully it will be mild.
