We are finally seeing cooler temperatures this weekend! In fact… It looks like the brunt of summer heat is finally weaning, and it’ll only get chillier. For now, I rejoice. But I might eat my words when I’m shivering by the space heater. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves! Enjoy this weekend and take climate change in, one season at a time. (Or start to reduce, reuse, recycle!)
