Out here in Washington State I am so happy to finally have sunny days. There's not a lot of sunny, or dry, days for outdoor prop building, so I'll take all the sun I can get!

I remember looking out the window in January, Febuary, March, April, and even May -- wishing it would be something other than snow, or sleet, or ice, or rain, or mist, or drizzle, or downpour, or showers, etc.

Actually, I'm kind of the opposite. When summer comes, I'm all excited because it's the last season before Halloween and time to kick it into high gear!

I'm with you...it's a great time to get the cars out of the garage so you can build "important" things

Funny, none of that stuff is in the Utah weather forecast:
The result should be more clouds, cooler temperatures, and wet weather at times. Warm today, with thunder possible this afternoon. Cooling tomorrow, then much cooler Sunday with rain likely and mountain snow! :eek:

Look at it this way. Get through June, then you only have about 2 1/2 months before you start to see Halloween stuff in some stores. Then it's right around the corner.

It was a pleasant 65 here today :) Cloudy, not too humid. If the air were crisper it would have been fall.

When you think about it, there is only one big holiday between now and Halloween if you include the 4th of July. I love seeing Halloween stuff in stores in August!
I actually get really strong Halloween jonesing in the summer, because it reminds me of getting out in the heat of August/early September and seeing early signs in stores like Party City, Hallmark etc...
I'm with you though Pumpkinman, I hate the heat. Those first cooler days of fall make me feel so good again!

Honey, as far as I'm concerned, you could skip right over summer and give me 6 months of fall weather....50's, sunny, (with a couple of cloudy days thrown in so we don't get bored) crisp clear air with a hint of bite, the leaves brilliant yellows, reds and oranges, and that lovely smell that you get walking through the fallen leaves...not to mention the beautiful smell of those leaves piled and burned...corn shocks in the fields surrounded by fat orange pumpkins....


***SIGH***

I wish it was fall now.:(

MHooch-- You must live somewhere other than WA, where the Enviro-Nazis would NEVER let you burn leaves in the yard. -- I do miss that smell though.

LOL, living in Texas all my life, we call that our imaginary fall! Around here, raking leaves usually coincides with putting out the Christmas decorations. We go from green to brown to bare in about three weeks starting in November. That's it - that's our version of fall!

Autumn is about the only season we do right over here in England...If you don't include the Halloween element, that is.
Our winters have become mild and wet...(although we did have some snow this year, but it's the first decent snowfall we have had for 20 years)..
Our summers have become cool and wet..(one day of 70 degrees plus, and the hospitals are full of people with 3rd degree burns)..
spring seems to start whenever it feels to start.
But Autumn still seems to be Autumn, and it remains my favourite season for many reasons although you won't find Halloween stuff in the stores until october (if you find it at all).

You will see Christmas stuff in the stores as soon as the kids have gone back to school in September....Or easter eggs just as you're recovering from your New Year's hangover, but Halloween stuff...not a chance.
