I woke up this morning here in CT, I had the windows open last night and the wind was blowing something fierce. I stood up and walked over to the window and a very cool breeze came billowing in - mind you the weather has been humid and soupy as of late - and I caught a fleeting whiff of something I have not smelled for nearly a year. Autumn.
I bent over and looked at the large white oak tree swaying in the gusty wind…the leaves turning over, the branches bowing…then another gust…cool, crisp, sweet air came billowing in again. It raced through my olfactory senses like a perfect autumn wind…no hint of summer left in it.
Does this happen to anyone else? Have you ever smelled a season coming? Or have you ever smelled the rain or the snow coming? I can usally pick up when it ti going to snow. Anyone else?
