Tonight is the night they turn the lights on for the Fantasy of Lights at New Haven’s Lighthouse Park. It’s a drive-thru display which benefits the Easter Seal Society.
I usually broadcast live from there, and was asked for tonight. In other words, I’ll be at the beach in mid-November.
It’s chilly today. It will be chillier tonight. And tonight will not have the benefit of sunshine, which helps keep you warmer, but is excluded from the reported air temperature.
I’m not going to cry about temperatures near 40º and a wind chill in the 30sº, but it’s my first blast of the season. Already, Helaine has taken gloves out for me and put them on the sofa near the door – lest I forget.
We will get much colder before the winter ends (it hasn’t even begun officially), but you always remember your first time.
