My fiance and I recently moved to a small town out West… Although the decision was hard for us to make because both of our families live up North, we knew it was right for our family. We have spent a year out West so far, and I am amazed at how much I enjoy living here. The summers are a bit hotter than we are used to, however the fall is truly perfect. Usually from around September to November, the temperatures are in the sixties, and it’s gorgeous! I only know this because of what our friends have told us, but our first fall here was absolutely not that way… For the first weeks of September, it rained non stop.Everything was wet and the temperatures were dipping into the lower forties during the nights. It was so frigid that my fiance decided to turn on the oil furnace. All of our western friends said that it had never been that frigid in September as long as they can remember. At first, we tried just turning on a couple small space heater that we had in the attic, however they didn’t warm the house enough to do the trick. Turning on the oil furnace in the middle of September was rare for us even while living up North. We ended up leaving the heat on for over a week before the temperatures warmed up. Although it wasn’t the fall that all of us were hoping for, I really liked having the cooler weather for a few weeks. At the same time, I do hope that next year all of us have a fall that is as gorgeous as what people say because it sounds so perfect.
