It's better than highs of high in the the 50's and 60's and lows in the 40's and 30's at night . 6 and 5 and 4:30 pm sunsets ,cold nights are right around the corner for alot of people. If a warm october is the price to pay for a nice mild winter, I would pay it
Highs in the 60s are glorious. Are you kidding? Really comfortable.

Not the lows that come with it at night .I grew up loving 80 degree and over days because the pool temps were comfortable, its very expensive to heat a pool and my dad wouldnt do it much. I hate when summer ends, colder night temps especially when sun goes down, shorter days in winter because of where the earth is angled and pointed away from the sun.

Closing up the pool for the season , shutting down the outdoor kitchen, ocean start getting too cold to swim in, sailing is tougher as well with the change in winds. winter is just depressing

even fall seems to me pretty in some places but way overrated, deciduous trees losing their leaves is depressing . everything is bare and grey and cold soon enough

Give me a nice warm november and more nights outdoors and a nice mild winter and I will deal with warmer than usual Octobers and hot summers, alot of people are basically just miserable from november-april. very few people suffer from seasonal depression because of warm summers, now winter is a different story

Good point. Current heat index, at 330 pm CST in Houston is 97 degrees. That's hot, especially for October.

And 90 and above with high humidity in Houston today, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Jeez - we're starting the second week of October.

Meanwhile, I'm in Maine this week enjoying autumn. Sunny with temps in the mid-60s.

A lot of people don't......I remember chatting once with a guy from Alaska who assumed that because I lived in Arizona, that meant I'd never seen snow and didn't know what it was. I've also got a female friend in Massachusetts who, for whatever reason, has never seemed to understand that Phoenix doesn't get 100+ degree temps during the winter.

Yeah, I don't think we hit 70 today in the Capital. It's fall. And, 90 may not be scorching hot, but it's too hot for me and it just doesn't feel like fall.

Meanwhile, yesterday's high in Tyler, Texas was a balmy 78 and the lows were in the low 50s. Today is much of the same, with abundant sunlight. GORGEOUS fall weather here! And no, we're not in the upper west Panhandle - we're parallel with Shreveport LA, Jackson MS, and Montgomery AL.

Got back from our vacation (to Maine - and yes, it was beautiful but we had to bundle up as if it was winter in Texas!) and the first thing we had to do was sweep the fallen leaves off our back patio.

One excellent thing about visiting Maine was catching the end of season clearance racks - apparently summer clothing in Maine is similar to what we'd buy for winter here - light jackets, hoodies, that sort of thing. We went to LL Bean but couldn't buy anything for winter because everything was so thick and hot we couldn't imagine wearing any of it at home. Thank goodness.

There's a reason that everything closes up there for the winter - and it's not because the weather is so fine. Meanwhile, we'll be outside on our patio enjoying our fire pit and our hot tub. Life is grand.
