But estivate? (Even spell check is choking on this one) It is a word worth knowing considering our current weather pattern. Dictionary.com has this for its definitions:
Es-ti-vate: es-tuh-veyt – verb (used without object), –vat-ed, –vat-ing
1. to spend the summer, as at a specific place or in a certain activity.
2. Zoology, to spend a hot, dry season in an inactive, dormant state, as certain reptiles, snails, insects aand small mammals.
We may all be known to estivate now and then, especially during summers like this. We hope that you’ve enjoyed your time estivating and that cooler fall temperatures (with some rain) are just around the corner.
