Preparing for fall used to mean getting the grill fired up for tailgating, raiding the store for Halloween candy, and getting the heavier clothes into regular wardrobe rotation. To make things simple this year, consider these simple steps.
The fall has arrived. Yes, the most popular season of the year has arrived once again, which means it’s time to break out the sweaters and eat something pumpkin flavored (at least once).
The 2020 election season promises to be extremely active, and while it’s important for everyone that can vote to do so, the realities of the coronavirus pandemic can make that task seem very frightening and disheartening. But not to worry; just follow these guidelines to ensure your vote counts.
Summer. Generally associated with the time of baseball, pools, and evening walks, it’s also the time of the year that traditionally presents the challenges to staying cool and healthy.
The height of summer. The long, sultry days. The best time to stay in the shade and do as little as possible. However one chooses to describe them, the period from July to August when the weather becomes the hottest has long been known by as the Dog Days of Summer.
Nothing says, “It’s the Fourth of July!” like grilling on a barbeque. While COVID-19 may present new challenges to this time-honored tradition, the pandemic has not eliminated the practice of cooking meat and vegetables on a fire while we celebrate the independence of the country.
Summer has arrived, and it's not the summer we expected.
Summer enjoys the reputation of being the season affiliated with freedom; schools are closed, outdoor activities from boating to baseball get encouraged, and Fourth of July celebrations light up the skies. But with safety measures being employed to combat COVID-19, many of those traditional summer activities have either been altered or eliminated.
Memorial Day. The unofficial start of summer and the official day to remember, honor, and mourn the military personnel that had died while serving in the United States Armed Forces.
- Be Prepared
Regardless of what you want to do this summer, preparation will remain a key ingredient to enjoying your vacation. And not just the usual preparations like making sure the travel vehicle has been inspected and repaired, letting someone you trust know where you’ll be, and remembering to bring a charger for your devices.
