Indian summer

It feels like yet another round of Indian Summer here in IL. It has been in the 70's for two days with bright sunshine.

In wondering about the origins of the term Indian Summer, I went to my good friend Google once again. The following two were interesting. Phrase finder appears to be a site out of the UK, but still good info.
It would be a great day to hang clothes on the line, however my neighbors seem to think that it is also a great day to burn leaves. Not good for that outdoorsy smell I love on clothes... :(

I can't stand leaf-burners! I'm always afraid the fire will get out of control and then you have to hope the person with the fire sees it in time and can get his garden hose on it. I'd love to line dry clothes - it's one of my sick little life fantasies. But I have really bad allergies and the worst thing I could do would be to let me clothes hang outside collecting pollen and other allergens and leave me a royal mess.

That is the worst...I cannot imagine having allergies that bad...Didn't get to hang out again yesterday because of leaf smoke. Ugh!
