I'm envious of those still summer conditions.

We are definitely into Fall here... bird migrations, endless days of rain, cool temperatures (52 degrees), and leaves changing colors.
I do like Fall, but I wish it would last longer... emoticon

We're getting some actual summer temps again, 80s and 90s. I'm soaking it up while I can!

It's starting to feel too much like fall; we've had temps that fit the average for mid-October. Not liking this one bit!

It is still August and we can feel the autumn approaching. It is dark by 8 pm but as long as there is sun, I can bear it.November is the pits especially when it rains . Once we get a blanket of snow on the ground, it feels a bit better because the snow reflects any light from street lights or the moon. Here in Quebec the days get really short by Christmas time and it hardly feels like party time unless we get outside and shovel sidewalks.

Our daylight and night time are roughly equal right now... 7:30 AM until 8:11, but it won't be that way for long. We are losing 5 minutes 40 seconds a day, which equates to a LOT of darkness fairly soon.

Nice info, Lee! I was thinking it seemed earlier than usual this year. It's getting dark sooner, too.

An Early Autumn - from The Old Farmers Almanac

September 22—Autumnal Equinox
The earliest autumn since 1896 arrives this Saturday, September 22, at 10:49 A.M. (EDT). At this time, the Sun appears to cross the celestial equator from north to south.

As the weather cools, the days start to get shorter than the nights. See your local Sun rise and set times—it’s interesting to see how your day length changes.

The word equinox comes from the Latin words for "equal night.” Around the time of the fall and spring equinoxes, there are equal days of daylight and darkness.

However, if you look at your Sun rise and set times, you’ll notice that there aren’t exactly 12 hours of light and dark. Why not?

On the equinoxes, the very center of the Sun sets just 12 hours after it rises. But the day begins when the upper edge of the Sun reaches the horizon (which happens a bit before the center rises), and it doesn't end until the entire Sun has set.

Not only that, but the Sun is actually visible when it is below the horizon, as Earth’s atmosphere refracts the Sun’s rays and bends them in an arc over the horizon.
