ready to wrap up summertime

Summer is taking its time letting go around here.  It really hasn't rained for over a month, not even afternoon thunderstorms.  It has been so hot for most of August that H was scarcely able to get out on his road bike; he prefers not to ride when it is over 90 F (and who can blame him?).  But the last week or ten days have been slightly cooler, and with the days shortening, it really is cooling down overnight.  The fifteen-day forecast has no temperatures higher than 90 F for northern Utah and that is great.  We are ready for fall.

The change in seasons means that ski sales and swaps are starting to pop up, retailers looking to clear out last year's stuff to make room for the new clothing and equipment and skiers/'boarders ready to get more gear.  SNIAGRAB is no more but here are some of what's around and coming up:

Ski 'n See - Ski-a-Rama Annual Tent Sale - jackets, pants, skis, snowboards, goggles, helmets and boots.  Now through 9/5

Milosport Snowboard Shop - ski swap on 9/3, line starts at 5 a.m. (!!!)
