Fall listicle graphic

We will all remember to turn our clocks back tomorrow (technically Sunday, November 6 2016 at 2:00a.m.), yes?!

Here are 5 fall facts that most of us know…and forget every year:)

 

  1. Fall begins with the autumnal Equinox [day & night are roughly the same] on September 21 in our Northern Hemisphere
  2. Fall ends with the Winter Solstice [the suns northern-most position in the sky] on December 21
  3. Meteorologists mostly use a definition based on months (September, October & November)
  4. Popular culture in these parts associates Labor Day with the start of fall
  5. Since the 16th century it’s ‘fall’ in the U.S., ‘autumn’ in the U.K.; before that it was just ‘harvest’

Meet Tyga: Spot’s new friend who needs a home

It’s time to spread the word about Tyga who is at Safe Harbor Humane Society and needs a home!

Here’s what his caretakers had to say:

Tyga - available for adoption at Safe Harbor Humane Society“Tyga was brought in 8 weeks ago. When he came in he was incredibly fearful. The staff worked with him a lot and now he’s one of the most lovable dogs here. He gets along with every dog we’ve had him around (which is a lot!) and cats. We’ve brought him to multiple events with lot’s of strange dogs and people and he did great!”
