Create Your Own Indian Summer!

Defined as “a period of warm, quiet, hazy weather that may occur in October or even early November”, Indian Summer is a phrase most North Americans use to describe an unseasonably warm and sunny patch of weather during autumn.  But you can’t call it a true Indian Summer until there has been a killing frost or freeze.

According to the annual records, first frost is usually by mid-October in many parts of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.  And further into New England?  Fuggedaboutit!  It can happen in late September!

Tell the truth:  Are you REALLY ready for the long slog through winter…snow…ice…freezing temperatures.  *BLEAH*

Warm.  Quiet.  Hazy.  Isn’t that infinitely more delightful than freezing-rain-and-sleet??

Wouldn’t it be so much better if you slipped off to a balmy, sunlit place determined to squeeze the last bit of enjoyment from the beautiful fall sunshine? So why not try taking a late fall break, or slipping a few beach days into your existing calendar?  (For further inspiration just check out our Fabulous Fall Specials!)

The farmer’s almanac advises:  “If you find yourself in the midst of Indian summer, take advantage of it!!  Get outside, take the boat out one more time, or have a picnic in the park.  Soak in the sunshine because winter will not be far behind.”
