Street Strut

The hot days of August has hit the Shoals. Hot dry and humid. When I was school age, we didn’t start until after Labor Day as most schools didn’t have air conditioning. With the installation of AC, schools keep moving up opening day until it’s taking a month of summer now. Most schools started back the first week of August. Farmers finally had a dry spell so they could get wheat combined and soybeans planted in the stubble.
