Yesterday’s Penology: The final day of August. How did that happen? Difficult to do much phenology when you are in the office most of the day. I did get out briefly for lunch, mid-70s, sunny, pretty darn nice. I noticed this morning that the sun is now getting to be pretty low in the sky during my commute to work, making the easterly drive a bit more difficult. Also, here it is, not quite 8pm, and it is definitely dusk outside. Hello, September.
