Last week, on my bike rides, I was drafting a blog post in my head about how glad I was that I hadn’t entirely missed fall. My favorite oak tree still had a share of blazing red leaves, and the weather was cool but not cold (in fact, the first day I was back, it was 80 degrees!).
Alas, my procrastination made that post obsolete; I woke up this morning to a chilly 36 degrees and a projected high of 54, not too dissimilar to the temps Dottie described in her last post. But with the weather going on in the East today, I’m not going to complain too much about fall’s abrupt conclusion. At least there are new fall TV shows to curl up with: has anyone else been watching “Nashville”? I cued it up on Hulu when I got home last week and totally got sucked in. Except for the fact that everyone on the show has a Southern accent—something that’s increasingly rare in actual Nashville, which, like any good boom town, is full of people from other places—the setting feels pretty authentic for a drama, and I absolutely love seeing places like The 5 Spot and the Musica statue on my TV every Wednesday. And the music is awesome: T Bone Burnett is a producer, and most of the music is written specifically for the show by local songwriters, although they used a Civil Wars song on the first episode.
Anyone else tuning in? Do you have another favorite fall show?
