I agree autumn is long and boring here. I wish it was like alaska where it only lasted a month.

Anyway it's not invigorating to me but boring, I tend to lose most of my interest in the weather until about March the following year.
I'd consider it invigorating, and you do have comfortable temperatures and maritime storms in Autumn, so someone like me can enjoy it for what it is. Buxton averages 59/47 in September, 52/41 in October, and 45/36 in November.

Those figures, although they do bring some enjoyable weather, are actually pretty lousy for Autumn - the nights need to be a lot chillier than that. What really stinks about a Buxton Autumn for me (a cold lover) is that the nights are too warm, there is not nearly enough variation in temperatures, and it never transitions to Winter (more like an extended late Autumn). Autumn in northern New England is vastly superior.

Well that's the problem with maritime climates. Very little temperature variation and the temperature can be the same mid day in February as at mid-day in July. Autumn here can be summed up as temp somewhere between 3-15C, overcast with drizzle and a bit of wind. Like watching paint dry, and then waiting for it to peel and crack off the wall.

I beg to differ. A 70 F day in spring, for example, is indeed "good" over what Sophie or myself deal with during the summer. Even during this lousy winter I just experienced, I was quite content most of the time. I'll take what I consider comfortable temperatures any day, even if it isn't exactly my ideal weather for the time of year.

That sounds like appropriate autumn weather to me. I love it as the trees shed their leaves. The grey sky is a perfect backdrop.

Now with this cold front and lows back in the low 50s, I really start to think of fall. I keep hearing Colorado will have snow in September, or at least it's looking like that. It snowed on Mount Evans Monday, but that's at 14,000 ft. But having 3 cold fronts in less than two weeks was way better than the VERY WEAK two cool fronts we got ALL of July. I have seen some changing of the leaves in some trees, but that's only about 1% of trees thus far. Most are still full green. Now time to go out and enjoy tomorrow in Denver.

At least you have temperature variation in the UK my hometown varied in temperature between 31C and 28C all year. That's way less than the difference between July and January in Buxton, or anywhere in the UK :P
