I'm sorry, I'm over summer already. 

Did I really just type that?  I'm sorry, I like summer a lot but fall is the crown jewel of them all.

Triple-digit heat makes it almost too hot to even go outside unless you are on a sandbar somewhere.  We could use a little rain and a thunderstorm or two. Thunderstorms are one of my favorite things about summer.  We've barely had anything again this summer and the same with last summer.  You have to go back to the summer of 19 the last time we had thunderstorms consistently.  That is a major disappointment for me.

Too hot to do yard work, (I mowed my weeds yesterday) the grass isn't growing, so you have to mow the weeds every now and then.  Forget about trying to work on anything in the garage, as it's like a sauna in there.  Basically, add 10 to 15 degrees to whatever the current temperature is, and that's the temp of your garage.  To hot to go fishing.  That's right, fishing in 90-plus-degree heat gets to be a little too much for me.  Going for a walk or run in the evening is about the only thing I'm doing outdoors on these hot days.

That got me thinking about 10 things to look forward to this fall and the cooler weather.

I grabbed a pen and paper, and here's what I came up with.
