Dog Days of Summer
Now we know why Punxsutawney Phil does not predict the end of summer. It is too hot for him to crawl up out of his hole. Mid summer was a beast this year, with temperatures above 90 F most days. Wildfires blazed all over the Northwest, sending smoke our way as weather fronts drug it across the country.
August has slipped in already with the promise of cooler days this week. When this month ends, Fall brings on Nature’s fashion show and I am ready. Seems like each season ends just in time for us to look forward to the next one.
