Right - this is my least favorite month of the year in my least favorite season. I am really looking forward to fall!

We are having what is a pretty typical "heat wave" here in Texas - typical for this time of year, with temps around 100. But you know what - I am not complaining REALLY because this year, like last year, has been pretty easy going on us. A few years ago, WOW it was hot and dry, for such a long time, and it hasn't been as hot or as dry this year (or last year).

But I love fall so BRING IT ON! I am always ready for it in August but we don't get it till October - LOL. Here September, while not as soul crushing as August, is still pretty toasty. But the mornings and evenings do start getting cooler so that's nice.

I live in CT so basically same weather as the OP. I agree completely. The problem is the seasons people rave about---spring and fall---are by far the shortest seasons. Spring is maybe April and May if we're lucky but often it still feels winterlike in early April and can feel summerlike by Memorial Day.

Fall? Don't get me started. It's not a season, it's more like a month: October. More and more humid weather stretches well into September so it feels anything but fall like. And last year even by mid October the temperatures plummeted and began to feel more like winter.

In the northeast if we're honest with ourselves, we mostly just have two seasons: summer and winter. And winter is the longer of the two.

I'm from Texas, and it's definitely been staying hot longer.

Maybe it’s being brought up in California, but I’m mystified by folks who love the change of seasons. Fall is pretty, but doesn’t make a lasting impression. Spring is nice here in the South, but is just a fleeting reminder that summer is next.

Bring on that Mediterranean climate.

Oh yeah I remember a few years back. I was actually in Phoenix for a week when the temperatures topped 123 degrees. It was brutal. The coolest day was 116. And I can imagine TX has weather similar to that feels like.... with the humidity included in. (115 with no humidity supposively felt like 100)

There's a palpable excitement in the air in Denver when you know a storm is coming.

Hey, fair enough. I do like a nice thunderstorm.

And while I generally hate driving in snow, watching the snow fall, whether with a bourbon neat in your hand or while walking your dog and hoping he'll run away while you're distracted by the snow is priceless.

Well, not quite THAT bad where I live but dang it, it's been hot. We had a "cold front" come in and the highs today were in the low 90s, with a heat index of "only" about 100 so we caught a break - LOL!

We've had mostly cloudy conditions today, thank goodness. It should only "feel like" 101 at the height tomorrow.

Let's just say that I'm ready for September, when the highs drop down into the 80s and even the 70s and the lows are usually in the low 70s or 60s! ONE MORE MONTH.

I actually really love fall weather here but it's not like it shows up in September. October is touch and go.

Not really. I ski. Itís usually top to bottom before Thanksgiving. Spring skiing usually starts around St Patrickís Day and runs into May. The beach opens and the sailboat launches before Memorial Day. We usually travel in early May and October. This year, May was Italy. October is Porto and Galicia. Late-October to Thanksgiving is pretty useless. White ribbon of death at the ski area. Too cold for ocean. It gets dark early.
