Autumn In Texas

It was what passed for winter in west Texas, at least until the snowstorms. They'd had a few days of fall, which meant that the leaves were a sickly yellow around the edges instead of dark green. She'd heard that fall was a beautiful season in other parts of the country and the world, but around here it was more or less a half hour between blazing summer and freezing winter.

One more reason to never,ever live in Texas.
