Cicadas bring late summer in the midwest - a sound the reminds me of being a kid in central Illinois. A good fall chill is still weeks away here - but it is definitely welcome. Great thread - I hope everyone builds on it.
Kids go back to school on Tuesday!
Our local cider mill opens Sept. 1.
Leaves just starting to get a tinge of color. The cicdas are still humming.
Still waiting for the cooler temps though. Need to give our AC a rest!
The cicadas have been singing around here since July. They were really loud yesterday when I was in the yard. The humidity just came back so it still feels like summer. I also can't wait for the 60 degree weather - my air conditioners have been putting in double time.
Where I am we are still in the 100s (with lows all the way down to 78) - the damned cicadas have been buzzing since February/March - my house slab has shifted - the water from the COLD tap is hotter than the water from the HOT tap - my truck tires have melted to the molten asphalt more than once - people are still dying of heat exhaustion and heat stroke - school started a few weeks ago - the only reason the leaves are falling is becuase we're in the middle of a very serious drought (no real rain since April) - my dog broke its leg falling in a crack in my front yard......
LOL oh my goshhhhhhhhhhhh you got my laughing so fricking hard here. I do have leaves falling also probably due to dry heat. LOL yard turning brown but perfect for my graveyard. LOL Had to get new tires for the van I rarely drive due to tire rot LOL. UGgggggggggggggggggggg Im ready for coller temp, this heat and sweat makes my hair curl. LOL
The temperatures at night have been getting cooler which is great sleeping weather but makes the water in the pool get really cold. Plus, there are leaves falling in the pool constantly from the neighbors tree and since they aren't offering to come skim them out, I guess that means it's almost time to close it up. School supplies have been shifted from the seasonal aisle to the clearance aisle and Halloween stuff is in the stores. Halloween candy is starting to be advertised on sale at some local stores and every store seems to have pumpkin carving kits in them. That can only mean one thing....it's almost FALL and HALLOWEEN........WOOOHOOOOO
Don't forget that next year DST is being held off next year. Figure the amount of sunlight you'll have on Halloween (and the weeks preceding) by mentally adding an hour to your time just to get an idea.
Everyones getting worried they won't be done with what they are making for Halloween.
The pumpkin stands are being set up here. Pick your punkins put your money in the box...LOVE IT
can't wait to turn the air OFF
