These October nights are beautiful for walking, and lots of people are doing just that. The darkness is perfect for seeing the stars and northern lights, those fall bonuses you don’t get with the long summer daylight.
The darkness brings some danger, though. It’s hard for drivers to see you and your dog. A few people have been brilliant and added reflective strips on their shoes, jackets and collars (their dog’s, of course) to make themselves easy to spot on the street. What a bright idea!
Reflective bands are easy to find just now, in time for Hallowe’en. When you pick them up for the kids, make sure you cover yourself too. Drivers will thank you 🙂
Enjoy these autumn nights before the ice and snow arrive!
