    So, when is Fall ever going to begin?

    September was the hottest month of the year so far. Last week it was 100+ for almost every day (except on Thursday it cooled down for a few hours).

    Now it's still hot as the 8th circle of hell.

    What happened to Fall? Is it not happening this year?

    I think the Sun is vacationing on the surface of the Earth this year.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I feel your pain jread since I'm only about an hour south of you. How'd you like that "less hot" front that came through last week, dropping the temperatures to only five degrees above average?

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    Thursday... Like SW Michigan said it is in the mid 80’s here and will be for another two days... but on Thursday, we will not see 60.

    I hope for snow by mid next week!

    I had to scrape frost off my car this morning, and all the leaves are dropping from the trees. Fall is right on time in Alberta!

    We have been seeing temps in the 50s, 70s, High 80s yesterday, 70s and down into the 50s and 60s the rest of the week.

    Also on these days, the sky has been sunny, cloudy, misty, cold, moist, dry, rainy, windy.

    Sounds just about right for the Front Range of Colorado to me...

    Yeah, I woke up that morning and thought "Wow, this is awesome!!". After what seemed like 10 minutes, it was hot again. Then the days after that were back to the usual oppressive death heat. I hate the summers in Texas (all 6 months of them). Portland is looking better and better: http://www.weather.com/weather/local...om=search_city

    Right now it's 85F and the dewpoint is 67, so it feels more like 90-92F.

    It's gotta break soon so I can paint the house in relative comfort!

    Often, September and October are the warmer months of the year for coastal California. Where I live, it can be quite hot during these months-although it cools down at night because the daylight period is 90 minutes shorter than the summer peak.

    For example, it was 100 degrees last Tuesday, and 98 on Wednesday. it cooled down dramatically by Friday, and it was overcast and cool yesterday afternoon.

    September was probably the rainiest month Chicago has had since winter. Very odd. So, the rain helped keep the temperatures pretty moderate. We had warm days, but a few days I could sense autumn with some pretty chilly temps.

    But the fall foliage will suck this year. Absolutely no color expected due to the damn spring/summer drought. The leaves will just all turn brown one day and fall down at once.

    Saturday was fall. I heard the elk bugling. It was 72. Then it snowed Sunday night, and this morning I woke up to 2" of the glorious white stuff on the ground. I think it's winter now. Didn't get above 40 here today. The local ski hill has their snow guns pulled out. Supposed to keep snowing until Wednesday.

    Every hot day is one less I will need to run my furnace. And with what they say that will cost this year, that's ok by me.

    That being said, it looks as though I will run my furnace and AC in the same week 90 today low in the 30's later this week

    It's been in the upper '80s here in central Indiana, but is supposed to cool down after a front comes through Thursday.

    High of 58f here today. Cloudy as all get out to boot. Fall is here. Time for darker beer, hot chili, and hockey.

    Hey, that sounds like a good idea...
