June 20 th The First Day of Summer
Happy almost summer all! This evening look out the window at exactly 7:59 pm est and wave goodbye to Spring and say hello to Summer. According to Charles McChesney who writes on the Syracuse.com website summer will arrive at 7:59 this evening and one of the cool things he mentioned is how early it is this year. You can read Charles article at http://www.syracuse.com/news/index.ssf/2008/06/summer_cant_wait_sneaks_in_a_d.html
It's the earliest it's been in something like 112 years. Just think about it! There are only about 12 - 13 people in the world who are still alive that have seen summer come this early. That's how long it's been. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldest_people#Oldest_validated_people_currently_living_.28top_10.29 .
For me personally I'll be waving goodbye to one of my favorite seasons and saying hello to my least liked season for the fact that I know more of them 90 degree days are waiting around the corner. Enough said!!!
Have a Great Safe Summer Everyone!
