The Ides of October

We hear the phrase "the ides of March" and it is often preceded with "beware." According to Mr. Shakespeare, it was the warning to Julius Caesar as he entered the Senate and suffered his fate at the hands of his assassins.

The weather on Florida's Gulf Coast changes from the near perfect to the perfect in October, and like clockwork, it happens pretty much in the middle of the month, the ides, and the ides of each month through April are much the same. Temperatures fall slightly creating crisp mornings, and the sky becomes a clearer blue. Some may say it is the weather to die for but that may get us too close to Shakespeare's meaning.

This is the weather we live here to enjoy. (I am convinced Caesar would have liked it!)
