I've waited all fall for Indian Summer. I had learned something new about it that I wanted to share. But I don't think Indian Summer occurred this year. Did it? Did I miss it?
Indian Summer is that period of summer-like warmth after we have a hard freeze. Here that usually happens by late October, first part of November.
Winter begins tomorrow. If our weather stays as nice as it has been, can we still have Indian Summer even though it is officially winter?
Oh, that new thing I learned and wanted to share? Another name for Indian Summer is Goose Summer. From Goose Summer comes the word gossamer - a fine, filmy substance consisting of cobwebs wafting on the air, especially on warm Autumn days.
Nevertheless, I know I will welcome more daylight.
