So 2020 continues to slip away. Back in March when we welcomed in spring I don't think any of us thought we would be where we are now. 2020 has turned in to the year of hoping things will happen, but then they don't, except for Mother Nature and Father Time they keep marching on.

This Tuesday (September 22, 2020) we will cross over into fall, time of year that many of us enjoy in the Hudson Valley. The heat and humidity of summer are gone. The crisp fall air moves in with it's scent of apples and all things pumpkin. The Farmer's Almanac has shared a great article about the fall equinox Fact & Folklore. Check it out while enjoying a pumpkin spice something and plan your fall calendar.

By now most of us have become a custom to what we think the rest of 2020 will hold for us. Family gatherings will still be small. Some family will still only be on video chat. Eventually our outdoor dining will have to come to an end. These things maybe true but it doesn't mean we can't look forward to some fall fun.

Local apple orchards are waiting for us to visit. Pumpkin patches are overflowing. Local breweries and wineries still have lots planned before the snow flies. Don't hibernate yet, we still have so much to do to make 2020 the year we won't soon forget because of the great stuff we got to do despite the COVID-19 outbreak.
