On this week’s 10 ways you can tell we look at different ways you can tell that summer is over.

We all love summer, so much so that we hate to see it come to a conclusion. See below ten different ways you can tell the summer bliss is finally over.

1)The first and most obvious one is the weather. Once the change in the weather comes, it is almost as if doomsday is approaching. Nice sunny days spent by the lake are now spent cosying up to the fire.

2)The turf is all saved and the fires have already started to be lit. We must protect ourselves from the cold front after all.

3)You know summers coming to an end when you are already start planning for next summer. What easier way to get through a long winter than to have a nice holiday to look forward to.

4)The silage season is finally over. Balers, Harvesters and Wrappers are parked up to gather dust after a long hard summer.

5)The once bountiful agricultural shows are now few and far between. The glory days of early summer now a distant memory.

6)The harvest is coming! Like the impatient waiting for the dragons in Game of Thrones, many are waiting anxiously for the start of the harvest. Farmers around the country are glued to the weather channel, in hope of a miracle.

7)School is not to far around the corner. Back in June it seemed like a long road ahead until September, though the more fun you have the faster it seems to go. It doesn’t be long coming back around again! The shops seem to be filled with nothing else but school supplies and if not that Halloween supplies.

8)The bank account has taken a fair hit. Whatever it is about the good weather and summertime, but you tend to spend as much as you can with nothing to show for it.

9)The beachbody has been long since replaced. Work is already underway to build up the reserves for the coming winter.

10)The days are beginning to get shorter and shorter. We all know farmers bask in the glory of the long summer days, though this is not long lasting as the night begins to fall a lot quicker. This makes mornings a lot darker, and makes it a lot harder to get up out of bed! The “stretch in the evening” is now a thing of the past.
