I used to love the hot days of summer - then school would call, yuck. Then I found out that the hunting seasons all started in the fall - yea. Next, I had to work for a living and being outdoors was kinda miserable, dealing with the snow and ice. Finally I got old and can't stand the hot weather and always look forward to the fall season for relief from the heat and humidity - also the costs of heating/cooling drops like a rock. Just think when fall arrives, Christmas can't be far behind.
Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.

Yer talkin' crazy. We don't have fall down here. FL seasons can be described these three ways, and they all pretty much fall in the same time spans:

And unfortunately, Tourist Season is not a hunting season.

Yep, we moved from Mobile Alabama 3 years ago and I will say this, Mobile has 2 seasons. Summer and Almost Summer.

I love autumn too. Here in the NY Catskills, it's vividly beautiful. Great crisp weather, great for walking, a day a the range, flying, and all sorts of outdoor stuff. The colors peak here around October 15th, then the leaves fall like rain with the first good storm, preparing us for winter.
I have the wood stove going already, and enjoy the cool nights in front of the fire.
Sorry if I wax poetic, but it's a great time of year. Until the fuel bills start to arrive, that is.

I am with you on the rough winter ahead...The oaks are dropping nuts like it is going out of style. Normally I will only find a few around the trees this year I could fill up the truck bed several times over. It has happened like this only before rough winters in the past....bring it on!!

Reminds me of the old film, The Halelujah Trail, with Oracle's prophesy about the hard winter approaching. "There! Now I see it!"

I survive summers, I do not enjoy them. Fall is just a nice prelude to the real party, winter.
Of course if I lived someplace like Hawaii (80s, breezy), my opinion might change, as long as I could vacation in Wisconsin (family) or some other pinter wonderland.

Ahhh Fall is here! It means that the temperature will drop to the Mid 80's from the low 90's, our IDPA club will require to use cover garment again while shooting a COF. It also tell us we are about a month or so from the end of hurricane season and the beginning of property tax season.
The highway's full of tourist that still do not know that the posted speed limit is a suggestion rather than the law down here and that the left lane is called the NASCAR Lane for a darn reason.
We are getting some showers... I think up north they are called major storms with flood watch. Lawn grows so fast you can actually hear it stretch 2 inches overnight. And with all that water you get to "enjoy" stepping barefoot over snails...UGH!
Bass fishing will start to get better as the water cools from its soup temperatures. Fishies will be hungry and easy prey.

Here in Phoenix, our wonderful season is just starting. Temps below 100, finally get the motorcycle out for OUR SEASON of riding! We're good now until the end of next May.

Yeah, summer's over, high temperatures have already started to dip down into the upper 80's to low 90s. Soon, I won't have to use my reflectorized windshield screen.

It's been around 70 during the day around my area(Bluemont, VA) and around 40 at night for the last two weeks or so. I went to a big end of summer bash 2 weekends ago. Cold and rainy, but plenty of fun in the mud was had by all. I'm going on a hike out in Augusta, VA area in two weeks as my acceptance of fall.
Anyone know where the seasons go from spring to fall, repeat, etc...? I think I need to move there.
