It isn’t the college football season, it isn’t the autumnal equinox that marks the beginning of fall. It is October. Fall is the best time of the year: football, farm visits with the family, crisp air, leaf season.
And there is no better place to be in October than the mountains of North Carolina. The worst part of living in Texas was walking out of work in October and it would be dark and 90 degrees with mosquitos swarming. The worst part of living in the Rust Belt was just how damn short fall was. It is good to be back where fall is as God intended.
Better in the Fall is off of The Steel Woods tremendous album Straw in the Wind. I’ve been doing a lot of work on my mom’s property, and Straw in the Wind is my go-to choice of music.
