Death Valley

Can you believe that these cracks are in the middle of a parking lot?
They are so deep... it looks like (I imagine) Death Valley would look.
From what I've seen in pictures, the sand and cracks go on for miles...
Not much survives, and the heat is defeating.

This summer, I believe we've seen some similarities.
The heat has been sweltering.
Produce is having trouble surviving.
And the cracks in the ground look deeper than ever.


Luckily, fall is coming.
We should be getting a break from the heat very soon... or soonish.
Produce, while going towards it's "down season" will start turning beautiful shades of red and yellow.
Fall festivals will abound, and spirits will feel free (in more ways than one).

So, I guess maybe we should embrace this last  glance at summer.
Delight in it's attitude, as oppressive as it may be, for it will soon be time for that certain chill in the air last will last through the end of the year.  And before we know it, we will be wishing for these dog days of summer once again.
