    I have a picture from this last summer on my kayak at 10pm and sun setting over the sea. One of my highlights of the year. Kind of my heaven. Then I look out now.. Grim.

    But what about Autumn (the best season ) and winter to look forward to and hope for a cold and snowy one :D

    I hated snow since the 2009/10 winters. 8 weeks of snow for each of those winters made me hate it to this day. I used to love snowy winters

    Autumn is always **** now. It's always gloom. Never gets cold enough to be nice! (I am coastal)

    The only positive is that it makes Summer that much better when it comes around.

    Snow was fine for a few weeks at a time. Not constant for months.

    Bears start to hibernate around now, so those idiots will have to be determined, but bears do come up and check around occasionally and bear season starts in October in most States, but thankfully is still banned in Florida.

    I’d rather we kept the time the same rather than moving back 1 hour in October.

    Where do you live the scottish highlands? We had a bit of snow and it was cold for a while iirc but that was about it. Come to think of it that was the last time there was any real snowfall havn't seen any for years now.

    How does it work if you're working? Would prefer another hour as long as it's paid.

    Probably depends on company policy and needs of the business - I've had to stay on an extra hour before to ensure continuous operation which sucks.

    I can only offer my condolences, it must be quite depressing for you. In my case it's all good from here until March [at which point I start getting seriously stressed out and in need of medication]. But Oct-Feb is pretty much utter bliss for me.

    Feels like we skipped Summer and Autumn, it was just one long mild cloudly year. Autumn hasn't properly happened as most of the trees my way still have green leaves on them, usually by now they've all turned brown and shedding

    I believe that's something to do with the sun. A more sunny summer means more brown leaves more quickly. Or something like that.

    Thanks. Yeah I knew moving here I'd be sacrificing a worse winter than normal. For a better summer. Just wish winter wasn't so long!
