I've noticed some of those signs too. I've also been seeing my breath at night for the last few weeks.

It's about that time when you spend the morning copying elaborate syllabi (because apparently one has to be a contract attorney now to say "Show up on time and do what I $#%&ing tell you to" and hope the administration will back you up...)

We have another 30-45 days of 90 degree weather left here. I'm hoping for an early and long fall, though. Who needs winter? Fall is perfect!

Ha! When rum is replaced by cognac, and Gin and tonics become gin martinis.

Amen!! We've had an unusually cool summer and an unusually cool spell the last week or so, but there's certainly several more weeks of heat to come. Prediction back into the low 100's later this week. I could live with 6 months of fall, personally. I love autumn. The colors, the perfect daytime temps, crisp nights, the harvest season, the holidays. No better season than fall Cool

When you wake up in your sleeping bag in a tent and you walk out to find a good tree and you can see your breath.. 35.F makes crawling back in the sleeping bag a fast movement. The katydids have been singing for a couple weeks now. Good pipe weather on the way..

For my Gen. Ed. sections, my syllabi is up to 13 pages now! FERPA, ADA, plagiarism, it reads like a legal contract!
