to think that autumn could have had the decency to be less precipitous in its arrival

Oh, god, is that summer done? I just came back from Canada on Monday night, and am not enjoying the weather at all.

agree with you
I went away for a week - when I left it was SUMMER and I got back yesterday and there are autumn leaves all over the garden.

Me too, we took the dog for a walk last night and it smelled remarkably autumnal

Sept is supposed to be very nice weather. It has been on and off all summer, don't lose hope yet everyone


zippitippitoes · 30/08/2007 10:22

i think the leaves have turned and there is damp in the air and conkers on the ground

I'm so excited we had no summer!

I hate fucking heat.

I love it, MMJ. After living in a place where it nearly never rained and in many semi-tropical/tropical areas where you slowly sweated to death.

No, thanks!

I'll take Britain any day.

We had our first summer holiday this year (we usually go away between Oct & Dec). I'm so glad we did, because it's the only bit of decent weather we have seen. Well, if (like me) you enjoy 'real feel' temps of 106 and a nice pool in the backyard to keep diving into.

It did feel decidedly autumnal this morning, but then autumn is my favourite season, so I don't mind too much.

I would have liked to have worn some summer clothes in England at some time during the year, though.


zippitippitoes · 30/08/2007 10:47

yes it's the nuclear winter effect i dislike

I called it autumn but it isn't proper autumn it is a fraud which makes it worse

proper autumn has poetry written for it

I know what you mean. Our seasons are virtually indistinguishable. All grey and temperate. I love seasons (which is one of the reasons why I want to live in Maryland).

think someone needs to write a haiku

I love it, I do. No more roasting to death! Being able to sleep with the windows open and not tossing and turning trying to get to sleep when it's still bloody 40 degrees or getting bout after bout of sinusitis from constant air-conditioning.
