I'm TERRIBLY bummed that fall approaches. Yes it's beautiful, but I can't get past what lies ahead.

We have our seasons, but they're just more...subtle. Right now, on the SoCal coast where I live, I can feel that little crispness to the air that foretells fall.

So while we don't have the glorious colors of fall or the possibility of a Currier & Ives-like Christmas, we also don't have the bug problems and unbearable humidity in the summer, we don't have to shovel snow in the winter or deal with blizzards, we don't usually worry about tornadoes, and we never have hurricanes. Yeah, yeah, we have the occasional earthquake, but I feel quite lucky to live in such a temperate, almost weather-less clime in which you can pretty enjoy the outdoors all year round.

I love the change of seasons, and always ready for the next one. They are not very dramatic here. But it is lovely to be able to have lunch outside in spring, have everything outside in the summer, begin thinking about pumpkins and casseroles in the autumn, and nesting in the winter.

Me, too! Autumn is the bonus we get for having to go through Winter. There's nothing quite like the smell of falling leaves.

I love the fall in northern New Mexico[where I live at 7500 ft elevation] its already getting to the lower 40s to upper 30s at night its great we sleep with the windows open but stay warm with a really nice down comforter.Problem right now is the bears, for some reason the acorns did not come out this year which is a huge calorie food for them,so they are roaming big time looking for more food as they need a alot more fat to hibernate.

I'm with you cora. Our summer was much too short this year. I do love the fall, but I still want a few more days of summer. Today and for the next few days it should be close to 80 which is great.

I don't mind fall... until it starts to get cold on a daily basis. Then I hate it because it means we'll have 6 months of winter lol.

I love "sweater weather" but really dislike having to wear a winter coat. When it gets cold enough for a coat, I just freeze and don't want to come out again until the Spring.

Granted our temps may not seem real cold to people up north but everyone aclimates to their area. It was 74 driving home from Alabama, I had the convertible down and the heat on. I was a little cold because of the wind chill.

I really dislike winter. I like to head north to ski and see the snow a couple of times a year but that's enough for me.

As a witness to a miserably hot summer, the hints of fall this season is truly inviting!!!!
