Summer in Minneapolis

MN Realtor Reflections 

It's mid-September, and I find myself emersed in the end-of-summer reflections and, at the same time, feeling the excitement of a new season soon unfolding. But first, to be clear, I am in no hurry to kick summer out the door like a discarded lover because I prefer fall's embrace. Autumn is a spectacular season, and I adore crackling fires, the nip of crisp air, steaming bowls of soup, and pumpkin, everything. However, each season deserves its full measure, and summer is short enough. We'll know when it's time to pull out the favorite turtleneck and crockpot, but with temps still in the 70's and low 80's, fall needs to wait its turn.

Lucky us, in The Twin Cities, we celebrate all four seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. However, the lines between when one ends and the next begins are often blurry. I decided to take an informal survey of friends and neighbors on when to let go of summer and move on.

  • Labor Day weekend is the end of summer
  • Summer ends when the kids go back to school
  • End of the Minnesota State Fair means the end of summer
  • Meteorological summer is over August 31
  • When the pools close, wave bah-bye
  • Summer is over when I hang up...
