There is nothing like the first cold day of the fall/winter in Austin, which occurred October 6th, 2000. This is the first day when long sleeves actually feel good - even necessary. The night before I wanted to wear a jacket so badly I even threw it in the car, but it was too hot. Then the morning came bringing that lovely cool air that you can drive in with the windows down and feel chilly - what a great feeling! That evening I opened all the windows of my condominium and even the terrace door and just smoked my pipe in pure bliss.
