Summer Starts

Tomorrow is the first official full day of summer. Hope you are able to go outside and enjoy it (we have high temps in the 110 range, so I am glad I am working indoors today).

Dates - Summer begins on June 20th in 2008 in the Northern Hemisphere. The seasons are considered by some Western countries to start at the equinoxes and solstices, based on astronomical reckoning. In North American-printed English-language calendars, based on astronomy, summer begins on June 20, the day of the summer solstice and ends on September 20, the autumn equinox. When it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.
