The great Cumbrian summer that never was is gone. Woke up this morning, and the leaves are falling. Autumn is here. Dark at 20:45.

I hate winter.

Scotland is the same, worst summer in many years, more rainfall than I can ever remember. :(:(:(

It's a car - just a car!
Life is too short not to try to enjoy every single day that you have left on this earth - including the autumn and winter days...!!:D

And all of the above means Summer is not far off for those of us who live in the southern hemisphere...

Bring it on, I say! :thumb:

Summer was over for me on the 1st August when scaffolding went up all round the building to decorate the exterior. Living in the basement, it is like nighttime all day long. Only another 3 weeks before I move out (I bet that will be the day the scaffolding comes down).

Two parking spaces gone...I imagine someone will be annoyed.

I'm prepared this year spare set of 17" alloys with Dunlop Winters raring to go, just waiting for the temperature to drop.:D Probably won't snow this year just to p*ss me off!:wallbash:

The nights may be drawing in but there is no way im swapping over to those winter wheels yet... im on a mission to squeeze out every last minute of summer!

We have had some nice days here in the midlands, cant complain this year.

Summer's not over until you put your central heating on. Mine's been off since early April, so read this and weep EON et al

I can't believe people are moaning about Summer being over in August. The weather is great.
