It's still 90 degrees out there.

It's going to stay pretty close to 90 for the next 10 days. If you head outside for any length of time, the sun tries to straight-up murder you. It's so hot your steering wheel feels like hot, metal rubber and things rarely cool down before bedtime. Outside is starting to get that scorched desert look, with dried grass and cracked mud.

Still, with all this heat, fall is on the way. Football is happening, school is back and some of the more progressive stores have started filling their shelves with Halloween merchandise. You can sense that very soon the leaves will be falling and everything will be black and orange.

Before you know it, you'll hear spooky commercials on the radio and car dealers on TV will offer "SPOOKACULAR SAVINGS." Every ad, flyer and solicitation you receive in the mail will have a witch or a bat on it.

So what is it that opens up these flood gates each year? Is it someone reading the Necronomicon Ex Mortis out loud? Is it the sightings of evil clowns on roller skates? Is it the simple turning of the page on your kitty calendar?

None of those things say it's fall like one thing, and that's finding out that Pumpkin Spice coffee creamer has returned to shelves. I bought three of them, and I don't even drink coffee. I hope you have a fabulous fall and a Happy Halloween.
