After days and weeks of Deep South sweat, sultry dew points, and summer’s reign of sweaty oppression, a wind from the north!

The dog days’ back is broken in lightening air as autumn breezes in to South Louisiana, right on cue for the end of summer and the start of fall. Not often do the calendar and the weather conditions coincide so perfectly, especially along the Gulf Coast where most years, summer loosens its stifling grip almost imperceptibly: We have little fall until late October/early November, right before the season turns to winter.

Today is sweet!

Marley the Dog wonders, "What fresh scent rides on the fresh'ning breeze?"
