I know the first day of autumn is still a month away, but back-to-school promotions seem to trigger an unyielding desire for boot-and-sweater season. This is problematic since it’s still a constant 90 degrees where I live, but my office thermostat is helpfully turned to the “arctic” setting, allowing me to get away with fall [...]
