This year, as children returned to school and summer vacations ended, September brought almost tropical weather to Eastern Ontario–it persisted during the evening with balmy nights and then, with little warning, switched to cold, sweater evenings. Apparently we will be having more temperature fluctuations this Fall, with a dip in temperatures by the end of the month, followed by a warmer period before winter.
This haiku is a reflection on recent weather events:
Chilly nights follow humid hot September days,
Humid hot September days, Autumn’s beginning?
