Fall weather has caught up with us. Starting back the day after we arrived in New York, we've been pummeled with rain, inundated with mist, and subjected to "Ithacation," Ithaca's unique manifestation of precipitation, which resembles a constant dreary drizzle.

Despite the weather, we enjoyed seeing a slew of friends and former colleagues during an overnighter to our alma mater. We grabbed some lunch at our favorite places: The Nines one day and The Greek House the next. We walked around campus with the baby, dropping in on people for surprise visits in most cases and showing her off. Much adoration ensued. We had a great time catching up with everyone, being surprised at what eight years has done to some and has not done to others.

Many of the trees have done their thing, turning orange, yellow, red, brown, all the usual colors of autumn, however the terrible weather has frustrated all my efforts to take not only decent photos but fall panoramas as well. I did manage to grab one at Cornell, but it's not likely to be particularly noteworthy. At least our trip to Ithaca allowed us to score some real cider and some chocolate-and-cream-cheese muffins as in days of old, plus we got to see and hear the migrating geese flying over in their huge, noisy Vs.

Geese over Ithaca.

Baby's first visit to Cornell.
