Tumbleweed Tuesday Is Near - How Do You Feel?

Can't wait for the summer to be over? Or are you dreading the end of the season?

The first day of fall this year is Sept. 22, but on the South Fork the day that really signals that summer is over is Tumbleweed Tuesday — the day after Labor Day.

Tumbleweed Tuesday gets its name because after a flurry of activity all holiday weekend long, and all summer for that matter, the Hamptons practically becomes a ghost town overnight.

Summer renters and second-home owners head back to the city. Many businesses and restaurants will go inter hibernation until Memorial Day. And its possible to find a parking space on Main Street again.

Some locals let out a sigh of relief when Tumbleweed Tuesday comes, but for others it only harkens boredom. For yearround business owners, it means the cash drawers won't open and close as often. And for kids, it means its time to go back to school.

Whether you are looking forward to it or not, leave a comment below sharing how you ring in the off-season. And please vote in our poll.

Tumbleweed Tuesday is like New Years Day for me! I'm planning to have some champagne on an empty beach.......then go to one of my favorite restaurants where there will be no lines and friendly, stress-free faces greeting me again. We get our small little town back again. I can't wait.

How much does it cost?

I think people are living in the past. The season has extended to at least Columbus day and beyond. Parking places are still not easy to get after next week and the rudeness continues ...

After Scots and Frisian come http://www.outletcoachstoday.com those Germanic languages http://www.coachoutletod.com/ that are more distantly related: the http://www.coachs-outletcar.com non-Anglo-Frisian West Germanic http://www.coachoutletdp.com languages (Dutch, Afrikaans, Low German, http://www.coachoutletwo.com High German), and the http://www.coachfactoryoutletsp.com North Germanic languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, http://www.coachfactoryoutletli.net Icelandic, and Faroese). With the (partial) exception of Scots, http://www.coachfactoryoutletce.org none of the other languages is mutually http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net intelligible with http://www.coachoutletonlinesc.com English, owing http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com in part to http://www.louisvuittonoutletct.com the divergences in lexis, syntax, http://www.louisvuittonoutletti.org semantics, and phonology, http://www.coachoutletrf.com and to the isolation http://www.coachfactoryonlinebp.com afforded to the English http://www.coachoutletuser.net language by the British Isles
