Hard-pressed to believe that fall was so close at hand, I trudged into Hill City for a glimpse at the thermometer. Sure enough, the time-and-temperature display that had flashed 110 degrees only a month earlier now pulsed a way-lower number. At 7:01AM it displayed 26 degrees.

26 degrees.

Fall is on the way.

If you’re sick and tired of the summer heat, I hope you’re cooler now. Enjoy what remains of your summer.
