Not really since Fall doesn't start for another 30 days or so but Labor Day is considered to be the last holiday of Summer. Here in Kansas City once summer is over and fall sets in it's all down hill from there becuase it seems like fall is only 2 days long and BAM! (as Emerald says) winter is here. And our winter is usually a nasty little ugly creature that rears his head sometimes as soon as Thanksgiving. UGH! The cold wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't the ice and snow. And for some reason our city has the worst street crews alive. Anyway, enough complaining about something that will be here soon enough and here's to living it up before the summer ends. Happy Labor Day!

hi andrea,
come try buffalo ny's winter streets sometime. the people who live there complain all the time about the road crews and how they never take good care of the streets. they tend to forget that the crews can't get down their streets if no one follows the parking on odd days and even days rules. i live about 50 miles south of buffalo and i watch the news and some days you just gotta laugh. our winter doesn't really get started until just before christmas, but then it seems to last forever. this last year we were still getting snow the end of april. we are told to expect a colder and snowier winter this year. yuck!!! just what we need with the cost of heating fuel going up so high.
enjoy your end of summer. hope it lasts a little longer.
