August is the last month of Summer Break for the kids.
August is a hot month. August is a great month for swimming, going to the lake, and vacationing.
And August is Ragweed pollination month!
Ragweed pollen starts increasing in August and spreads through the air most actively through September. Just look at the Google search trends for "Ragweed" (below) and you will see how, consistently over the past 5 years, Ragweed has peaked in late August/early September!
