It is staying warmer longer at night these dog days, and that is not a good thing. Not fun at all. No. Mmm…slower coolingsdown. If only we’d been warned, educated, and/or informed…. I remember in school, when teachers would explain the seasons to us kids, and describe how during summer, the days feel longer, the […]
Knock, knock. Who’s there? Month 5. Month 5 who?
