If it weren't for the smoke/carbon monoxide detector-alarm calling out the fire department just to remind us that its shelf-life was only 5 years and needed to be replaced, we'd be hibernating by now – but it does and we aren't. I've always thought that bears had it figured out – just go to bed, pull the covers over your head and sleep 'till it's over!
However, the horses are all sprouting winter coats, you get sugar-intoxication diabetes just walking in the door of most supermarkets, the garden has freezer burn and we've run out of neighbors to strong-arm into taking a basket of squash; so, I guess we pretty much have to resign ourselves that:
Today's GEOtography collection is the Halloween Edition - full of the photos I've collected all year with "Devil" in their name. You will be suprised at how often early settlers used the moniker of ol' scratch when deciding on what to call a place. I'm sure that you'll recognize a couple.
So grab some hot chocolate and an onion sandwich, get comfy and scroll downwards.
[Remember, like always, these are full photographs so be patient while they load.]
