The Last of August

The end of August signifies the conclusion of another summer. Students are back in school, hurricane season is in full force, the days aren't as long, and Labor Day this weekend serves as the unofficial wrap up. Football is right around the corner, and it's return means one thing...Fall. Before you know it the 90 degree weather and humidity will dip, the evenings will be more bearable, and the leaves will begin to change color. Althought, ff you still have your grillin' pants on, there will always be time for that well into the Fall!

Fall brings us a lot of great things to look forward to in Baltimore (other than the Ravens), Fells Point Fun Fest, the Book Festival, and the Baltimore Marathon, just to name a few. So fear not, Baltimore but if all else fails, there's always a bar open on Sunday for football.

Right now the Maryland State Fair is a great way to send off the summer, and runs through September 6th at the Timonium Fairgrounds. For others, it's one last trip down the shore this weekend, although Hurricane Earl might put a damper on that. For those of you who don't have to worry about sending kids to school, the shore is still a great destination well into September, when the weather is still hot and the water is warm. Don't give up on it yet!

For all of the rest out there, so long summer! Only a short 9 months until you return!
