Feeling a bit too warm to pick apples or take a foliage viewing hike the last couple days? Some may call what you’re experiencing an Indian Summer.
What is an Indian Summer?
Does it have anything to do with Indians? Are we experiencing one now?
Well, that depends on how you define Indian Summer. There may not be a true definition – Indian Summer can be defined as simply as “a period of warm or mild weather in late autumn or early winter.” Other, more specific definitions say an Indian Summer is a period of warm weather that comes in autumn after the leaves have changed color and after the first frost.
