Yeah, I personally enjoy those clear and crisp days in the upper 40s/lower 50s with a breeze while watching the leaves fall or strolling through some pumpkin patch/corn maze/apple cider fest thing. 

Yeah October and November are my favorite months and losing their signature weather bums me out. It connects me with my childhood when we moved from NY to CT and the seasonal changes came earlier. The weather and the New England architecture and Halloween stuff seemed super exotic to me then. Loved it ever since.

Not sure I understand the idea of being a weather weenie on a weather forum when your ideal is 73 and sunny most days of the year, but OK. That is literally a complete lack of weather…

Kind of like having thousands of posts on a motorcycle forum when you despise the things. Just torture.

You can enjoy the motorcycle, but never ride/drive one.

Same with weather.

Todays another great beach day and I bet we hit 80 again here.  The sound is still around 70 here and I just walked my dog by the beach and people were in the water. You notice the insane amount of baby crabs everywhere?

Tons of stuff moving around the tidal pools. Kids had a blast, waist deep in the water, felt like August with the warm sun. We tried Walnut beach for the first time, great town beach. 78⁰ currently here in Southbury

The older we get the more patient we are I think.  I am enjoying the extended season of being outside in a t-shirt.  Leaves peaking now up here and I'd enjoy another week of 60s.  On the other hand, we need a hard frost to kill some things and sweeten up my kale and carrots and brussels.

Apologies for jinxing, but I kinda think when winter does come it might feature some real cold and a good amount of snow.  The pattern should change just at the right time:  November.

Today's weather is what I'd like year round.  Toss in some warmer days, toss in a few colder days, but by-in-large, this month can't be beat in my mind.

Had breakfast at the local cafe this morning, everyone was seated outside in short sleeves. That definitely gets no complaints from me on October 15th. Let the torch roll on.

I grew up loving extreme weather, but as I add other hobbies to my interests the extremes conflict with them. So I’m turning into a bit of a bitch like Epstein. Chickens and plants don’t like too much of anything.

As I got older I realized I don't want my property damaged and I don't need anymore injuries in life.   ie slipping on ice etc.

Winter is grueling up here too. I get wedged in most warmups while some of you guys in SNE get brief breaks and melt and rebuild. 
 

it’s just a long period of cold, wet, darkness. I think I’d off myself if we ever had another little ice age.

Patience is probably it to be honest.  I feel like a decade ago I/we as a forum had legit winter anxiety.  Like what if it’s not a banner year?!  Wasted part of our lives!

Now it’s like “it’ll snow, it’ll be winter, just let it happen. If it isn’t a banner year it’ll just try again next year.”

The level of “high-strung” over winter that used to happen in here as a whole has really mellowed out over the past 5-10 years.  Maturity? Ha, can’t be that.  Has to be patience.

Maybe if we were banished back to a warmer winter climate we’d regain that again.  We’ve been spoiled on the whole for 15 years relative to climate in many areas too.

the serenity prayer is really helpful to the young and the anxious.   "...the wisdom to know the difference."  Sometimes patience reflects, or brings, wisdom.

Glad I was able to move to get the weather I wanted. I spent a lot of years trapped in a place that is extremely hostile to the kind of weather I want (MD is a real tease because every 7 years or so you get 3 feet of snow -- sort of like being a drug addict and spending 5 years in rehab but then suddenly being dropped into an orgy where you are snorting lines of coke off of hookers), so I get the angst many have.

Yeah there’s a lot of years down there where it’s almost a shutout. Maybe a couple 1-4” events and that’s it. It can be brutal for snow lovers. 

That said, it probably makes you appreciate the snow more. There’s plenty of people here who bitch at 8” snowstorms because they didn’t get 17”.

I think the 70s are done after tomorrow. At least for a while....next week doesn't look warm at all on the Euro. GFS tries to cut the late week storm to our west which would warm sector us for a day or so, so we'll see what happens there. Euro CADs New England though with high pressure nosing down.

Yeah I was a lot more gung-ho give me freezing temps every month of the year even coming from ALB… can’t imagine MD.  We’ve talked about it but it’ll be interesting in 10 years or so what your thoughts are.

I think as long as you go south for warm season though you may avoid the complacency (if that’s the right word).
