We've just had the best summer for years in the UK. Mid September and it still hit 81 the other day.

I like fall because my birthday's in that season...coming up next month. .

That, and it's a pretty season.

It was cold this morning in my town-we had a low of 43 degrees and a wind chill of 38 degrees. But it bounced back up into the upper 60s this afternoon-it was a lovely day.

And then comes my favorite season...winter.

I can only hope that this winter is a lot less pathetic than last winter was. I want a good, old-fashioned, constantly snowy winter.

And I want snow on Christmas Day, damnit!

So ta-ta to summer...now it's time for my two favorite seasons to start. .

Angela

Already had one snow fall this week.

Anyone want to trade climates? spaces?

Autumn is so crispy though, and overall crunchy underfoot. And everything starts getting all grey and depressing. Dont even get me started on winter when everything has either hybernated or died off....
Give me sunshine, give me heat so intense I can feel it right through to my core...Give me long warm nights at the end of an even longer day...Give me 45+ and remind me I'm still alive...

your trees turn grey? mine turn red, yellow, brown, and orange

don't get me wrong. I like the summer a lot.
but there's only so many nights I can take waking up in a sweat at 4 am

haha well we have an awful lot of gum trees here and they're pretty much greyish blue to start with - all year round. once trees die though, they look really sad. its kinda depressing seeing trees without leaves! summer is cheery.
i agree with you about some nights though. waking at 4am to find its still 35 outside is a lot to handle. you guys dont get long summers do you?

no...it's getting cold now. I have my sweater on

I guess I've always been a morbid person in some respects. I love the look of a dead leafless tree against a clear blue sky. I remember drawing that when I was very little.

heh

It's actually too blasted hot here in Alabama. I turned on the air conditioning for the first time in three weeks after finding out the temperature had gone up to 92 yesterday. Ugh! There's nothing you can do about heat. When it's cold.........just put something on!

I second the motion.

Here in Barcelona it is still hot, not quite like August though.

I am from Toronto and I can safely say they really don't have a fall. There are no colours! By December it hits 10 (celicius) and it stays there until march....don't even get me started on winter.

When I left Toronto, I didn't think I'd miss the seasons so much. I miss the seasons more than some of my family!

I love wool sweaters and a hot coffee in my cold hands. Bright, crisp fall and winter mornings...

I am going to shed a tear....

Mine do, too.

And I'm gonna like it when the leaves start changing colors this fall in my town-we have TONS of trees in this town, and I just know there's gonna be some picture-perfect days going through town as the leaves change.

Exactly. Even on nights when it gets down to 60 some degrees in the summer, the humidity makes it feel worse.

And then there've been summers where it doesn't get into even the lower 70s at night. Blech.

Besides, I also like fall and winter because the tornado threat calms down a lot. Yes, we can, and have gotten, tornadoes in the fall in this area of the country, but it's not nearly as common as it is in the spring and summer. And then once winter comes around, we're good for the next few months.
