Seasonal Stutter

 While not quite as hot as last year's record September, it was still a warmer-than-average month around here last month. Dry, too. September 2019 was the driest Indianapolis had seen in twenty years, but this year's was the driest September on record.

When October got underway I may have put the top up on the Bimmer with some reluctance, but I was looking forward to cooler and wetter weather.

Well, we only got a week of that cooler weather before a lengthy spell of Indian Summer set in. Wondering about the etymology of "Indian Summer" and whether it was still a permissible phrase in 2020, I set off to Wikipedia...

Anyway, I'm glad I hadn't broken out the wool socks and long-sleeved shirts yet.
