What signals the end of summer for you?

Asked by chyna (45508points) September 5th, 2010

Is it the pool closing? Maybe it’s the onset of football season. The ice cream truck just went by my house and it made me sad as I know he won’t be back this year. It truly is the end of summer.

The moment I get back on the bus for school. Which reminds me, I have to get my pass renewed for the quarter.

Orange, yellow and red leaves falling from the trees.

When it is more comfortable to sleep with the windows open, rather than an air conditioner or a fan… and the leaves start to change.

Shorter days and longer nights, school kids walking to school as if they were going to be hung, cool breeze coming in, the little clouds on the weather map and last but not least, though more physically energetic, mentally down and blue!

When the aspen trees start turning yellow.

School starting is definitely a big one, leaves changing color, having to wear a sweater outside. The heat kicking in instead of the fan or AC, all the fall tv shows starting.

Fallen leaves, gray skies, crisp and chilly mornings, ravens being the only sentinels left in my backyard, the Riders of Doom.
