    Default Indian summer?

    A friend told me that we're about to enter "indian summer" now that the hurricane is past. I told him that there has to be a hard frost before indian summer can begin. What's the verdict out there?
    That the Tiger's roar may echo.....

    From the Old Farmer's Almanac

    Here are criteria for an Indian summer:
    •As well as being warm, the atmosphere during Indian summer is hazy or smoky, there is no wind, the barometer is standing high, and the nights are clear and chilly.
    •A moving, cool, shallow polar air mass is converting into a deep, warm, stagnant anticyclone (high pressure) system, which has the effect of causing the haze and large swing in temperature between day and night.
    •The time of occurrence is important: The warm days must follow a spell of cold weather or a good hard frost.

    The conditions described above must occur between St. Martin’s Day (November 11) and November 20.

    I have my tom tom and my tent ready for the sqaws readY!
    She got them eagle feathers; cocaine eyes
    She got the heat to make a dead man rise
    A rose in her hair, a devil may care attitude
    She never said she would stay by my side
    She only wanted to be there for the ride
    A bottle of wine, a coupla lines
    She was there for the night
