The last bit of sun is setting on Summer
Today is the first official day of fall – or autumn if you are kicking it calendar old school. Which means summer is over.
As most of you know, I love summer. It’s my favorite season of the year. Sometimes it can get really hot, but this year, the temps never really hit the triple digits like they usually do. Mostly 90’s for the last bit of July and most of August.
So far, most of September has been cold in the mornings but in the low 80’s during the day. I could thrive very well if it stayed like this all year. But alas, it doesn’t. And before you know it, the snow, ice and cold is here.

Which means my scooter riding days will come to a close in just a few weeks. Even if it gets chilly, as long as there are no snow storms and icy roads, I will keep riding. Besides, I still have a few Scooter Sunday episodes to film and put together.
So thank you summer, for all of the warmth, travel, splotchy burn that turned to tan, drinks, parties, BBQs and many other joys I experienced. I am hoping for nice warm temps for fall before I start bitching about the cold.
