    For me, It's the car shows in September, or October. It's the final Hoorah of smelling the Sweet Smell of 100+ octane fuel, Mixed with Nitrous Oxide, and hearing turbos and big cube blowers spinning about.

    What's your official end of summer activities?

    It's when I stop wearing little silky nighties and start wearing a duffel coat while I relax :)

    When college starts. But then again I'm not a big summer fan (too damn hot). Winter is my favorite time of year. I just love cold weather.

    For me Summer ends with the Jewish High Holidays. Rosh Ha Shana (Jewish New Year) starts on Wednesday at sundown. Then Yom Kippur is in ten days. Then Sukkot officially ends the Summer as a Harvest Festival. The California climate, at least here in Oakland, follows the Jewish Calendar quite nicely and is sort of like the weather in Israel. We have a dry season and a wet season. And it's Mediterranean-ish...

    Well, right now, it's when my son and I started school. But generally, the end to summer was when I had to wear a coat outside. :smile:

    Ooh, I'm glad I'm not alone in preferring winter to summer!:biggrin:

    Summer for me is over when our state fair is over. The New Mexico State Fair just started last weekend and will last nearly through the end of September. I also know that summer is coming to an end when the chile roasting season is in full swing. The smell of roasting green chile is a sure sign of fall's impending arrival in New Mexico!

    In Florida, I'd say Halloween marks the "official" end of summer. The first "cold" front usually reaches the state mid-October. It takes two or three of them knock down the muggy temperatures.

    My signal for the end of summer is that first morning when I reach and turn on my car's heater.
