Indian Summer

Indian Summer, is when the weather is sunny and warm, and above normal, usually 21°c (70°F), and all of the leaves of the trees have turned but before the first snow has fallen. A true Indian summer occurs after the first frost, generally a killing frost, of the season.

It really looked like this would be the year not only without a summer, but also without an Indian Summer, but I believe we qualify for this today. The temperature has reached 18C so far at the airport in Montreal (close enough), warmer downtown, and 21C at St. Anicet and along the US border in Champlain, NY. What a glorious day with plenty of sunshine. Enjoy!
