Changing Seasons

September is one of my favorite months. Maybe it’s the fighting spirit inside me, but I like to root for this ‘underdog’ month. Think about it…September is the month right before all the major holidays start, and I think September doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

The heat of summer staves off and we welcome fall. After the hot summer we’ve had, I’m ready for there to be a bit of a chill in the air. If you’re a fan like me, you’ve likely been counting down the days until football season, which is finally here! Leaves may be starting to change colors or fall from the trees. I think many parents enjoy September most of all (if their kids are back in school!) Parents, if you have teenage drivers going back to school who will be driving for the first time, make sure you’ve got the proper coverage to protect your family. Let us review your current coverage and make sure you’re properly protected.

There is one pretty neat thing that happens in September that you might not know about. You might remember from grade school that each equinox and solstice we experience is an astronomical event, caused by Earth’s tilt on its axis and orbit around the sun. We have an equinox twice a year – spring and fall – when the tilt of the Earth’s axis and Earth’s orbit around the sun combine in such a way that the axis is inclined neither away from nor toward the sun.

Additionally, we have a solstice twice a year – summer and winter – when the sun reaches its highest and lowest points in the sky.

When we experience the September Equinox on September 22nd, Earth’s two hemispheres will be receiving the sun’s rays equally. How’s that for a science lesson from an unlikely source?

I hope that you enjoyed a fun-filled summer with your family and are enjoying all that the changing of seasons brings.

Wishing you all the best this fall!
