Anyone else bummed that it's fall?

It's been cold here the last few days and I think summer is over. I usually look forward to the next season but not this time around. We had a late start on summer, it didn't really dry up and warm up until mid July but now it's already over. Kinda bummed out about it. I'm just not ready for the weather to be gray and rainy again. Anyone else?

I don't min the fall so much as I do the early darkness. Having a toddler, we need outside time - now we are gonna be inside exclusively before long, that is what I don't like - but I do like the cool (not cold) weather and the color of the leaves.

sorry, cora, Im with Mel! - this is my fave time of year: warm during the day and cool at night. I figured out this year that super-hot-and-humid does not agree with me one bit.

Fall is my favorite season! If you'd like I'll trade locations with you - we don't really get seasons down here.

Here in Southern California we have until the end of October before it cools off. Today it is in the 80's and I have all my windows closed. I wish we had a Fall like most states with the beautiful colors across the countryside and in the trees. Our trees do turn orange and yellow but not like the East Coast.
