An introduction to September
That cold rush of wind you just felt, that sent a chill down your spine, was nothing more than Summer packing its bags and getting out of town as quickly as it can. Oh, I realize that Summer isn’t over until the 23rd when the Autumnal Equinox creeps in through an open window, lays its icy, skeletal fingers on your shoulder, and prepares to do what it does best: getting everyone ready for Winter, which is following close upon Autumn’s heels. However, for all practical purposes Summer is over the moment the clock strikes midnight on September 3. When Labor Day gets here, remember to wear protective headgear, use plenty of sunscreen, drink plenty of fluids, and never stare directly into the Sun. I don’t quite know why, but that just seems to be good advice.
