Besides the rain we had Saturday morning we got lucky with a really nice weekend of weather in the St. Cloud area. Sunday as I was running errands in shorts and a tank top, I saw something I wasn't ready for.

No it wasn't the aisles and aisles of school supplies, it's almost the end of July I expect those.

It was two end caps stacked with Halloween costumes.

Excuse me? Halloween is over three months away. Are people really already picking up costumes for their kids?

I know when I was a kid I changed my mind at least three times in the month of October about what costume I wanted. I can't imagine my mom picking one up for me in July. But maybe times have changed. I don't have kids so it's hard for me to know.

Either way, costumes are out and available. So long summer, we hardly knew you.
