    Same. Really looking forward to it cooling down and the deciduous trees doing their thing.

    AUTUMN! LOL It's still 88 degrees here at 2:51 pm! It will take a couple more months for autumn to get here to south Florida.

    I have family that's lived in the Naples, FL area for over 20 years now... And nowadays they come up here for a good month of the winter. I think they actually got sick of the nice weather.

    Autumn is by far my favourite season. We're surrounded by trembling aspens on our acreage. Can't wait to see them when they're all yellow.

    Well good for them! I'd love to get out of Florida for the months of June, July, August and September. I've been here for 14 years now, I'm tired of the seemingly perpetual summer, what I would give to see trees that the leaves actually change color in the fall..

    A song for Autumn:

    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Not so quick. We have 53 minutes to go before the autumn officially starts...

    The ginkgo trees that line Athens, GA turn that bright yellow too.
    Our weather has started to dry out some too. A dry fall usually means our woods turn crimson more than gold. I'm hoping for a red fall.

    The same with SoCal. Late summer and early Fall are the sunniest months here.

    Autumn blew in to the Pacific Northwest with a vengeance. 60 mph wind on the coast, showers blasting through, power outages, etc. Tree branches falling on power lines knocked out the power for a few minutes this afternoon.

    I was going to go windsurfing but my son had other ideas. Well I needed a good ride and despite the strong wind it was a good cycling day. Plenty of riders out this morning before it really picked up. Went went for the less windy hills — the ups and downs here provide plenty of windshadows...and the wooded trail sections of the ride provide complete shelter. MTBs and hills are a great option for windy days.

    One skinnymalink built for hills, and one old clyde built for being a windbreaker.

    No kidding. I took advantage of the sun break and went out for a quick ride. Man, the headwind was brutal. I had to use one lower gear pretty much all the way home!

    It is my favourite season as well... the weather has been pretty much splendid for the past week and today was spectacular.

    The leaves are just starting to fall here...
