Finally! The snowdrifts are a cold, distant memory. There are actual leaves on the trees and in most of the country you can go to the store in a pair of shorts without other shoppers staring at you like you’re crazy. Yes, summer has a lot of perks, both large and small. Before it gets into full swing, here are a few things you can still take advantage of.
Cool mornings and evenings. Summer heat might be great after the long winter chill, but it can turn simple yard chores into a sweaty slog. Mornings, especially in early summer, are a great time to get some serious yard work done.
Vacations. You won’t get the great rates you would in the off season, but there are still plenty of deals to be had if you book early. More importantly, it will be less crowded and… cooler! Let’s face it— some of those popular summer vacation sites aren’t just pleasantly warm in July and August. They’re downright scorching.
Stay inside and not feel bad about it. Even in June, the weather can still be temperamental and sometimes chilly. Take advantage of those few remaining cool days to catch up on your favorite shows without the guilt associated with spending a nice day indoors.
It’s your summer. Take it fast or take it slow. Just don’t let it pass you by.
