Hi Margaret! Today Labor Day is the unofficial end of the summer season here in the States.I believe it was first created about in the 1880's as a salute to the people who worked 12 hr days, 6 days a week in the Industrial Revolution. I have a paid day off on Monday, but alot of people in the customer service ( shopping malls, restaurants, etc ) don't. In small towns it usually involves parades, picnics and fireworks. I wish we had some of your rain here in Pennsylvania. We had a shower on Fri night and that was all the rainfall for the month of August. No rain in sight, as it's all centered in the South with Hurricane Gustav. We were very lucky in that we had no 90+ degree days in August, a rarity in these parts. I do think fall is on the way, the Canadian Geese are squalking like crazy as they start to head south, and my herd of deer got their darker ” winter ” coats in at the end of July. I LOVE the Fall, just hope we get some rain so we have a nice display of fall foliage come October.
