And so it ends

You thought this was going to be a lovely tribute to Steve Jobs. Sorry to disappoint. I have a lot of memories associated with the products that his company created (the first thing I ever had to really save my allowance for and do extra chores to earn was a Macintosh computer), but this post is really about something much more immediate Рthe official end of summer. Oh sure, some might go by the calendar, but not me. Summer officially stops when the snow starts falling at Paradise:

Other passes have already had some snow. Witness this picture taken at the hairpin below Liberty Bell in Highway 20 at the end of September. But it’s a mere intellectual oddity that snow might fall in our state while it’s still summer.

Good bye shorts. Good bye cute sun dresses. Hello sweaters, scarves, hats, and hot chocolate!
