Fall - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week #47

Week #47 – Fall. What was fall like where and when you grew up? Describe not only the climate, but how the season influenced your activities, food choices, etc.

With the arrival of fall in Florida, the weather emphasis shifts from tropical storms to cold fronts. The cold fronts take the temperatures down into the 60s or 70s for a few days, but it's never long before it returns to the 80s and high humidity. When I was in junior high and high school, fall meant marching band practice and performing in the football game halftime shows and parades. Our eating didn't change too much, but my Dad loved to whip up a pot of his chili at the first sign of a cold snap. That was always a treat even if the weather wasn't that cold.

This is a weekly challenge from GeneaBloggers called 52 weeks of personal genealogy history.
