This is a thread for people who love autumn. It's currently 60 degrees in Milwaukee and I am loving it. Summer, GTFO of here!
Oh yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes!!!!!!!

Why yes, I do love autumn! It's not here yet. In fact, I have an A/C service call this afternoon. I woke up sans anything dreaming of window units. I would tough it out till next year, but it's not worth a month of living with a grumpy husband and a grumpy dog.

I love it, but then I love every season in its season, except for the cold rainy interminable part of spring. That can go to hell. Fall is time for doppelbock and pies and hearty herbed stews and lovely cool runs by the river in the early morning and cuddling with furry friends again after the too-hot-for-touching summer.

About 90 F here, and that's just fine.

Yes, it's my favourite season. There's nothing like a crisp October day to lift my spirits. It's feeling quite autumnal here already, it's not too warm and we've had some rain.

OMG PIES!!!! yes plz omnomnom!

It is beautiful here, crisp and sunny and just right... well, all except for the thick haze of smoke hanging over the valley from the Fourmile fire which is still raging out of control :(

My favorite season, too. I love the moment every year when I realise that in the early evening it's still warm-ish, but there is a chill in the air, and the light is long and yellow. Means that autumn is on us and I can be happy and comfortable for a couple of months.

Until I start bitching about the snow and wind.

Autumn rules. It's fall-like here today, too. Only supposed to hit the mid-70s and the sky is very clear.

It's grey and drizzly here. It was 103 on Saturday. The weather is so, so weird, but I'm loving the chance to go swimming and bundle up with spiked hot cider in the same week.

Autumn is the bestest season EVAR! And it's been autumn-ish for a week or so now. You know how the light changes and you start hearing geese and you start sleeping with more than just the sheet? Yep, that.

My favorite time of year for sure. I love the early days of autumn when there is sun but it doesn't make things hot. The crisp air (the Honey Crisps!), the colors, the cool mornings and just merely warm afternoons. Cool nights. That slight melancholy feeling. Yeah every season has its pleasures but autumn is my favorite.

Sob. I love summer. I mourn its passing. I love handfuls of cherries and blueberries, hot days, swimming, fans blowing the curtains in an open window, screen doors, the sound of cicadas, still-a-little-light-at-9pm, July 4, no school, sundresses, bare feet, floating on an inner tube, BBQ's ...

Oh sorry I appear to be in the wrong threat. (sobbing turns to hiccupping sniffles). Carry on.

I love autumn. Love the crisp mornings that ease into warm-but-not-unbearable days. Love the colors (although around here in Jersey some trees are changing already). I love winter, too, though I seem to be in the minority in that respect, around my house.

I live in Santa Monica. Autumn is subtle. I miss trees that change color. Thank god there are orchards within an hour's drive, because I would die if I had to go without blustery weather AND fresh apples.

We did get a few tentative spatters of rain this morning, and beautiful moody clouds hanging in the sky all day. I enjoyed all those things very much but according to NOAA it's almost over and we'll be back to unbroken blue by tomorrow or the next day.
