The September Climb

Summer’s over.

Okay, technically there are a few weeks left, but in terms of summer holidays and summer blow-out parties, those days are gone until next year. Traditionally, schools opened their doors after Labo(u)r Day across the U.S., but many schools did so at least a couple of weeks before. This week is for the last hold-outs of summer. To honor the passing of summer, Mega Millions started “the climb” on September 4th. That “climb” was to a crazy large jackpot. Tuesday night saw the grand prize rise to $187 million, among other things.
