We had about 48 hours of spring before winter transitioned straight into summer this year here in Ohio and it looks like we’re going to lose fall as well. Temps have been roughly 20 degrees above normal going on two weeks and it’s going to stay that way until Wednesday.
It’s supposed to be in the mid/upper 80s (July weather in these parts) until mid next week and I bet it’ll be in the 40s about a week after that.
One night, lightning struck the oak tree.
We also had an extended Spring this year. We didn't get the hot weather until July. 80 degree days in October is crazy.

According to my trusty digital thermometer (in the shade on the back porch)...it was 88 degrees yesterday at 5:00...88 degrees on October 5th

Been in the 90s here in Central Florida. I'm done with it. We live for fall here.
"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012
"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Spending the weekend doing yard work, filling in low spots in the yard, aerating and over seeding. Spent the morning digging up some drain lines that weren't buried deep enough. 5 minutes of digging and it looked like I had been swimming in my clothes. Had to come inside to eat and had to take a shower. Right before I came in my hands, stomach, and legs were all cramping. Hands bad enough that I couldn't unlock my fingers. Temps in the low nineties. Can't drink water fast enough.
Snowed yesterday in the Yoop. Some places got around 1.5 inches. Did not stick. About 2 weeks early for us. Tree color should peak next week.

Yup, here in South Florida it's still 90 degrees outside just like summer, when this time of year it should be in the low 80's.

We are actually having a Fall here in the AZ desert. Too often many years it stays in the high 90's low 100's until late in October, then transitions to our chillier winter temps (chilly for AZ). This year we've had some nice rain and it is running in the 70's now.
Even when it is chilly in the winter (50's to 60's during the day), if you get into the sun the radiant energy warms you very quickly and you can sweat if you start working outdoors.
We have one of the coldest and wettest Octobers I have ever experienced. My wood stove has been running for two weeks or more.

In CenTex the rain dropped the temps last week. Today the temp was back up to high 80s and humid so I was sweating like a pig doing easy apartment gardening. Yes, I am feeling that I have been screwed out of autumn to date.

Cold, wet, windy and rainy. Absolutely miserable fall. Can’t really do anything enjoyable outdoors. I’ve probably experienced worse falls...but I don’t remember them.
I'm in N.E. Ohio and I feel ya. I have got to ride more since it's been nice but I'm awaiting the cool down.
This weekend coming up, lows in the 40's and highs around 60. Kinda excited.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

First snow today with about 2" accumulation forecast. Fall lasted about a week.

Looks like we are going to shift from 70's and 80's this week into 50's during the day and 30's at night next week.
The weather this year has been absolutely screwed up with more rain than I'e ever seen in my life in one season. My poor grass is rotting at the roots, because it's drowning in too much wet!

Three more days of this upper 80 crap. Three more days.
One night, lightning struck the oak tree.

others have fallen
Same forecast here. We didn't get all that rain you guys got. Stayed a little south of here.
