August is usually a really hot month here in Tucson. It's certainly started out that way. Of course it gets hot all over the country in August. I'm growing some shade in my back yard, but that takes time.
The college kids will be showing up soon if they haven't already. This cycle takes place each year. And the school kids go back soon as well. Growing up in California we didn't go back to school until after Labor day, but around here it's mid August. And so another season comes to an end. I call it the pleasant season. It's when the schools close, the college kids go to wherever they go, and the snowbirds are gone. The traffic is light, the stores uncrowded because all these blasted people are gone. I even got my car worked on the other day without an appointment. Fancy chance that'll ever happen in the winter months around here. Yes the pleasant Season is coming to an end, although we still have a little while before the snowbirds are back.
