How Do You Know Summer's Almost Over?

What event signals the beginning of the end each year for you?

All year it feels like we look forward to summer — and then, in a flash, it's over.

Does it feel that way to you, too?

All my life, when I see the Hampton Classic tents go up over in Bridgehampton, I'd start to say, "The summer's over," mainly because I knew school was right around the corner. The feeling stayed with me even-post college. And, by the way, they were up last week.

What event triggers that same feeling for you? Perhaps you are looking forward to Labor Day, when the traffic eases and the beaches become less crowded.

Hopefully, we've made the most of it so far and can treasure the few weeks we have left.

How true! That is a sure sign, as our driveway goes directly onto Route 27. All summer I have to make three rights to make a left.

I start to see articles asking how we know that summer is about over.

The signs are up for the Pow-wow at the Shinnecock Reservation.

I can't say that I have seen a tumbleweed in East Hampton in at least 25 years. I miss those after Labor Day Tuesday mornings when you wouldn't see a car on Main Street except in front of the News Co. The "School's Open" signs are up all over town reminds me that summer's over now.

After Scots and Frisian come http://www.outletcoachstoday.com those Germanic languages http://www.coachoutletod.com/ that are more distantly related: the http://www.coachs-outletcar.com non-Anglo-Frisian West Germanic http://www.coachoutletdp.com languages (Dutch, Afrikaans, Low German, http://www.coachoutletwo.com High German), and the http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com North Germanic languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net Icelandic, and Faroese). With the (partial) exception of Scots, http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org none of the other languages is mutually http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net intelligible with http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com English, owing http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com in part to http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com the divergences in lexis, syntax, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org semantics, and phonology, http://www.coachoutletrf.com and to the isolation http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com afforded to the English http://www.coachoutletuser.net language by the British Isles
