Where to start?

Schools close

Taxis won't drive in it

Buses are taken off

Airports are crippled with it

Trains don't run

morons raid the shops as soon as the see a flake of snow

 

Pretty much it really.

To be fair, when I lived in Saudi Arabia this happened when it rained !!

Before, summer bit back again in September haha, almost as punishment. If only September had occurred in August that year and the summer would have been a memorable one (more so than it is already given more recent summers), and how much more autumnal is would have been had August been in September. Alas, Bertha ruined August, and Cristobal rewarded September.

Most memorable for me of that autumn (autumn proper that is) was the convective spell in the first half of October, great cloudscapes that mirrored more summer; then November brought about quite a lot of fog after the unsettled first half, which was great for photos. Above all, I'd like more frost this autumn - something similar to last November but with a few more gales. 

Morning @MP-R :)
Ahh yes... The clapped out remains of hurricane Bertha in August 2014... yes, it did stir the atmosphere up a bit. Lol
Personally I've got no problem about September having become an extension of summer, as with the shorter days, and the misty starts to the days, there is a different feel to things when compared to say July... Its like enjoying the last gasp of summer before things really change. :D

I remember those cloudscapes of October 2014, they were indeed stunning. :good:
Plus I agree, more frost late autumn, and a few more gales come November time. 

And, and just for good measure... Here are a few of the misty, foggy pics that I manage to take last year... I do hope we get more days like this in the coming autumn... Forgive the pun, but I'm getting all misty eyed thinking about it. Lol :D

What happened to the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.

What happened to foggy autumns, having said that last autumn was a bit more like this. 

Days of calm frosty weather in  the late autumn were always nice.

Morning @seaside 60 :)
We had loads of misty mellow days here last year, and it looked and felt wonderful :D
I just hope we get more like that this year as well. :)

Beautiful photos. It frustrates me when people dismiss Autumn as a month of death and decay. Get outside, it's a beautiful season.

Absolutely. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder as they say. I love all the seasons when they deliver their respective weather.

So many slate last winter but I quite enjoyed the calm frosty weather. Much preferred to wind and rain.

Lovely to see the combines rolling through the barley fields last night. I'll never tire of watching the harvest come in

Up and about early, and I'm pleasantly surprised to once more see the gentle mists just hanging across the fields. :good:

So today I can confirm that I have just felt, smelt and seen autumn appearing for the first time this year! Hello autumn 2017. :D

I know it's July, but I took this photo about an hour ago... It could so easily be mistaken for September. :D

The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is underway. :D

@Dangerous55019 Your pictures are stunning. 

Come October it's all about being cosy, never was a salad person. Hearty stews all the way.
