Weekend brings last gasp of summer before fall arrives
The change in temperatures is happening right on time as the autumnal equinox arrives at 4:21 am. on Wednesday, September 23rd
What is the Autumnal Equinox?
Fall begins on September 23, early in the morning at 4:21 A.M. The autumnal equinox is when the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south. (The celestial equator is the circle in the celestial sphere halfway between the celestial poles. It can be thought of as the plane of Earth's equator projected out onto the sphere.)
Another definition of fall is nights of below-freezing temperatures combined with days of temperatures below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.
The word equinox means "equal night"; night and day are about the same length of time. This occurs two times each year: Vernal in late March and Autumnal in late September.
In addition to the (approximately) equal hours of daylight and darkness, the equinoxes are times when the Sun's apparent motion undergoes the most rapid change. Around the time of the equinoxes, variations in the position on the horizon where the Sun rises and sets can be noticed from one day to the next by alert observers.
From here on out, the temperatures begin to drop and the days start to get shorter than The Great Sky HOA Advisory Committee now

The Great Sky
Homeowners Association, Inc. (HOA) has installed a 8-channel NVR, digital color security camera system with a 1TB hard drive and 8 megapixel cameras
and HD resolution.
These cameras are positioned to monitor each entrance to the clubhouse (including the roadway), each pool and the slide (including the entrance gates to the pool area), the children's lot, tennis courts, and parking lot area. The HOA intends to post signs indicating that the clubhouse and amenity
areas are under surveillance.
These security cameras will be utilized to support local authorities in the prosecution of any crimes committed at or around the Great Sky Clubhouse. Further, the HOA has authorized the City of Canton Police Department to deal with any trespassers on its grounds.

At any given time, on average there are about 1800 thunderstorms occurring on earth with 100 lightning strikes per second.
Lightning bolts can travel 60 miles.
A lightning bolt travels at about 14,000mph and brings 300,000 volts of electricity to the ground.
The air located around a lightning bolt is heated to around 30,000 degrees Celsius. This is 5 times hotter than the surface of the sun.
The chances of being struck by lightning is about one in three million.
Lightning sets about 10,000 forest fires every year in the United States.
