A chronology of fun, fare and festivals stretching from the autumnal equinox to Thanksgiving

Summer gets all the love. But does summer love you back? Not so much this year, with July and August setting cruelty records.
    Autumn is clearly Chesapeake Country’s best season. With summer’s humidity wrung out, the air is light, skies often blue and leaves full of color. Maybe it’s time to let go that summer crush.

Re: Like Moths to a Flame: Turn on a light to observe National Moth Week; July 28, 2016; www.bayweekly.com/node/34080

I loved the article Like Moths to a Flame in the July 28 Bay Weekly.
