The August heat has settled in and temperatures in the high 30’s are the norm for the next several weeks.
Summer vacations are still happening but you can already see a slight slackening of traffic on the highways. Back to school ads are everywhere and kids are showing signs of boredom, a sure indication that the summer season is in decline.
These are the dog days of summer and for someone who writes about political adventures and misadventures, it is a time of limited stories and few tips. It is also an election year, a time when local City politicians are trying to be on their best behaviour.
We are still a month away from lawn sign season, ads, candidate forums and door knocking.
