The dog days of summer are quickly coming to a (sweltering) end. Even though it currently feels like 105 degrees outside, the chilly fall season is right around the corner.

Officially, we welcome in Fall 2018 the moment the September Equinox happens at 9:54 PM on September 22nd.

Still in denial? Here are 10 signs that fall is coming!

    It Gets Darker Sooner

    I love having time to hang out after work, May through July, when the sunlight is abundant. As soon as August arrives, however, the daylight hours start to diminish. If you've noticed, it's already dark by 7:30 pm!

    Back-to-School

    Yep, it's the time of the year that kids dread and parents so look forward to! If you (or your child) haven't already gone back, it'll happen in the next week.

    Halloween Displays Pop Up

    From the candy to the seasonal costume stores, chances are you've probably passed these already. Honestly, it almost feels like they've been around since the 4th of July!

    Crisp Fall Air

    What a welcome relief from the stagnate, humid air that we had to endure during the past few weeks of August. Get your sweatshirts and blankets ready!

    Fall Brews

    I'll miss my summer ales but, I really do enjoy Sam Adams Oktoberfest and all the pumpkin flavored beers, including Blue Moon Harvest Pumpkin Ale!

    Football! Football! Football!

    I saved the best for last, of course! Preseason has already begun and before you know it, we'll be in the full swing of the season.

    The only thing I don't enjoy is having to rake the huge pile of leaves during halftime. Oy.
