Weather or Not

The dog days of summer are finally here, that brief flirtation this portion of the globe has with truly warm weather. The “season” is in full swing, and as hectic as it may be, it is indeed all too short. Before we know it, the chill will return to the air, the colors of dying leaves spring-up before us and we'll have to start waving again. So, soak in the summer whilst you can.

The summer has been rather mild. Professor Adams at the University said that this is caused by Lake Superior having nearly froze over this past winter. I blame it on Richie.

Either way the temps have been noticeably cooler than summers past. August should shake this off, slightly, with the mercury climbing into the eighties for the first half of the month. After that, its frost on the pumpkins with a late Indian Summer in the beginning of October.

Once again, slip off your shoes, plunk your toes in the Lake, crack a cold one, and enjoy the heat.
