Seattle is enjoying a gorgeous bright blue skied fall filled with candy apple colored leaves and beautiful sunsets, but change is upon us. Daylight Saving Time which began on Sunday, March 11, of this year will end on Sunday, November 4, 2012. The nights are on the verge of becoming longer. Instead of hibernating, spend these long chilly evenings inside enjoying the magical storytelling of live theater. Seattle has so much variety to offer that there is bound to be something to entice even the most resolute grizzly bear out of the cave.
