After hearing all sorts of dire omens that cold weather will be creeping into Western NY in September, we’re happy to announce, it’s still quite summer-like. Although the calender says September is almost over, and it’s officially Autumn, my fellow reporter Joseph (Joey dog) Stephens and I feel like it’s still summer.
Our humans say it’s Indian Summer, a wonderful phenomenon in this region in which summer seems to return. Don’t be fooled, though. There are still other signs of Autumn. The days are getting shorter. It’s dark by 8PM.
