Every year, altar-ready couples typically get engaged between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day. This time period is known as “engagement season,” and it comes at an appropriate point before “wedding season” to allow for the months of planning that go into throwing a successful wedding event.
The end of one summer season is the perfect time to begin planning for the next. In order to have that backyard concrete patio ready for a grill and fire pit by June 2013, start your project in the fall when the weather is cool and the air is dry. If you wait until spring, you run the risk of damaging late-in-the-season snowfall on a freshly poured concrete surface.
This time of year is always marked by a sudden mass migration of the deer populations from the thick of the forest to the open, lit-up spaces of towns, yards, and roads. It’s also signaled by a sudden increase in car-deer accidents. In the midst of their breeding season, and in need of sustenance rich in carbohydrates, this increased activity and search for specific food sources brings the deer out and about—which in turn becomes a hazard for other entities using the roads. With the fall season well underway, motorists are urged to watch closely for deer and other wildlife on roadways.
