What does it mean when people say "Indian Summer" ?
Question Posted Saturday July 25 2009, 2:59 am
I was talking to somebody when I was at work and they said something like it might turn out to be Indian Summer here or something like that. I have no idea what they mean by that and I'm not about to make a fool of myself. What does Indian Summer mean?
hitler_the_goat answered Saturday July 25 2009, 9:48 am: its an old new england term meanng a summer that lingers too long and won't die. like the loal native americans in the area. but my ancestors slaughtered them all with great vigor... so its kind of dated. they'll last until october sometimes, remaining in the 80s when the normal high would be around sixty.
good thing we had lord jeffery amherst around, else we might have to be dealing with those pesky savages even now. YAY smallpox!
