It’s time to trade swimsuits for sweaters, folks. Fall is coming and many of us are wondering when fall actually begins. The answer, according to USA.gov is tomorrow, September 22 at 11:09 p.m. and that moment officially marks the end of summer.
Be sure that you don’t confuse the first day of fall with the end of Daylight Savings Time. This year, it ends on Sunday, November 7 at 2am which means we’ll have to turn our clocks back one hour.
It also means we’ll lose a little bit of daylight each day.
But seriously, what season is better than fall? Homemade pumpkin pie, fall fashion and breezy weather cannot be beat. Now that fall is here, it’s time to:
-Decide on a Halloween costume
-Stock up on fresh produce at local farmers’ markets
-Enjoy the crisp weather and go for a hike
-Winterize your home by installing new windows or insulation to help cut down on heating costs this winter
-Plant fall bulbs for spring 2011
What does the start of fall mean for you?
