Sarah McClendon snuck in an amazing adventure to Roatan, Honduras to do some scuba diving and saw this eight legged cephalopod!

We are thrilled to report that 2015 has seen a record number of Structural Engineering projects within walking and biking distance of our Hyde Park Boise office! Thank you for thinking local!
Why isn't October the Eighth Month?

An octagon has 8 sides, but October is clearly not the 8th month of the year.

Originally, there were ten months in the Roman calendar, which was basically a lunar calendar. The ten months were Martius (March), Aprilis (April), Maius (May), Iunius (June), Quintilis (Fifth), Sextilis (Sixth), September (Seventh), October (Eighth), November (Ninth), December (Tenth). The winter season was not assigned to any month, so the calendar year only lasted 304 days with 61 days unaccounted for in the winter between December and March. Those days were eventually split up into two months: January and February, thus confusing the month name with its position on the calendar.

One final note, Quintilis and Sextilis were renamed to honor Julius Caesar’s birth (in Quintilis) and Octavian Augustus’s conquests, which occurred during Sextilis. Now, we know them as July and August. It’s also why both months have 31 days- to honor Caesar and Augustus equally. The extra day needed to inflate the importance of August was taken from February.
