Bad Weather: Bring Your Gamp

Summer official ended this morning at about 3 am.  Leaves have been falling steadily all day, the wind is chill, and the air is damp.  The weekend looks to be perfect for outdoor activities, but don’t forget your “gamp” next week!

gamp (a word that I heard today that I am compelled to share with you)
n. – A large umbrella, a reference to Mrs. Sally Gamp, who always carried a large umbrella in Dickens’s Martin Chuzzlewit.
