No, we’ve not technically arrived at summer, but every day, more of us embody a summer mentally -- making vacation plans, trying to cut out of work early, and generally enjoying the longer days and increased supply of sunshine after making it out of the dark chill of winter and early spring. It’s the widely acknowledged kickoff month for summer fun, when pools and amusement parks open and beach town parking lots start to fill up.
