It is August, the hottest part of the summer. The time of year where there are festivals and Fairs all over the state. It is a time to enjoy being with family and meeting up with friends you haven’t seen in a while to celebrate local and State heritage. August is also the time of year where things start to wind down. Students go back to school. College students start going back to school or moving away from home for the first time. Vacation start winding down and people go back to work. It starts getting cooler and less humid. All of this starts the transition to my favorite time of year Fall. Why is it my favorite? That is easy to explain. Although summer is fun, it is hot and humid and sometimes to uncomfortable to be outside. During the Fall is it cooler and less humid and almost perfect weather to be outside. Fall also brings along color. Red, green, yellow, orange and brown these are the colors of Fall. It is as if mother Nature took a paint brush and splashed color everywhere. The falling leaves splash color on the ground and provide a playground for children of all ages. There is a crispness and freshness in the air, that only comes in the fall. It also brings bon fires, football, hoodies and pumpkin spice everything. For all the above-mentioned reasons Fall is my favorite season.
