Fall has arrived in full force in Cambridge, accompanied by its variable sometimes-gorgeous and sometimes-miserable weather. After two beautiful weekends in a row, it looks as though we will continue the pattern of midweek rain and clouds on Wednesday to Thursday and then go on to have yet another sunny and pleasant weekend.

Down South, torrential rain threatens Florida and has already caused major flooding in Central America. In the Rockies, several ski resorts in Colorado have already opened their gates for the winter a mere 100 days after closing them from last season. There remain only two more months before we, too, can relax and go skiing (or curl up by a fireplace, if that is more your style).
