24 October 2020
Last week there was frost in the suburbs on 17 October. This week 23 October was unusually hot at 78-80 degrees F (26C) in Schenley Park. I had to wear summer clothes yesterday but will wear warm clothes tomorrow when it’s 38F. Join me at 8:30am at Bartlett Shelter in Schenley Park. Wear a mask.
Though it felt like July this week I found some beautiful autumn scenes in Pittsburgh.
Above, the sun rose red at 7:34am on 18 October for 11 hours of daylight. Today we’ll have only 10 hours 45 minutes of cloudy light.
Frick Park was golden yellow on 21 October.
The Panther Hollow Bridge cast a shadow on Schenley Park’s trees yesterday morning, 23 Oct.
p.s. You can tell it was a hot week in Schenley by the presence of algae on the water’s surface.
