Fall In NE...

Fri Sep 12, 2008 2:09 am

Well...with lows now into the 40's at night, fall may very well be settling into New England!

This means a few great things

1) My favorite season of the year is almost here!  Smile

2) Sam Adams (Sam to us) Octoberfest is now in stores!!! Everyone has their favorite beers for the time of year and this happens to be my favorite. Another fav of mine is Shipyards Pumkinhead Ale

3) Starbuck Pumpkin Spice Latte will be sold soon (if not already)

Just sharing some of the great things I look forward to in the Fall months

What are yours?

I was having the same thougths last night.

Night time lows in the mid 40's
Harvest Moon beer in the local brewery ( http://www.fallsbrew.com ) (winter beer is better)
Trees taking on a bit of a yellowish shade with red on the edges.

Fall in the pacific northwest may not be as dramatic as the northeast, but not too shabby.

It also means that skiing approaches!

Cool nights, barbeques and lighting the firepit hearth on the deck.

Driving through the myriad of colorful leaves.

Photo shoots with the family.

Raking soggy leaves.

Smelling that fresh cool air. Even tonight and last night we've gotten a taste.

Oooh shut it...!! Big grin You're just making me home sick. Grew up in Maine and have been drinking Sammy since 1986...!! Shipyard is good... but the Dog is the best.. Seadog that is. It's funny.. I tell people in the south that up north you wake up one day and walk outside and just know fall has arrived. It can't be explained, but something is just different.. the smell in the air, the crisp breeze... the sun in the sky.. and the colors changing

While Sam Octoberfest might be good, that means Sam Summer is no longer available, and I am a sucker for wheat beers. Looks like I will have to stick to the Blue Moon (although I had and Allagashah (sp?) White today and it was pretty good).

Now that I am looking forward to! But hopefully I can get a few good beach days up in Cape Ann before the really cold weather sets in.

I had that exact same feeling about spring this year. I grew up in Portugal, where the winters were so mild you never really noticed when you moved into Spring. After spending a winter in Boston one day you just come into the street and suddenly everything is different - the birds are chirping, people just seem to be walking around with a huge grin on their faces, female dresses are a lot smaller and you just feel like taking your bike out for a ride on the town and laying shirtless on the pontoons in the Charles River Esplanade, just hoping some day the Charles will be clean enough for you to jump in. The weather might be cold here in this city but the nice days are absolutely gorgeous.

Definite signs of it here on the prairie-there are a couple of bellwether sugar maples I watch that turn early and they started with it a couple weeks ago. Some temps in the high thirties up north.

The first sign of the season changing here is that one day toward the end of august the green of soybean fields is dusted with gold. When the Dragon Lady and I are out on a road trip and we see this, it is duly noted.

I think I will take a little road trip over by Gutenberg next month.

We went over there a couple years ago and we were the only people staying in a hotel about halfway up the bluff.

The roads along the upper Mississippi are lovely in the fall. It's highly recommended.

Death to humidity.

The ability to walk somewhere are not sweat my ass off.

Patriots, Sox postseaon.

Knowing snow is coming.

Many more colors to look at, and I'm not just talking about the MassArt coeds coming back (there should be a limit to the amount of colors one person can wear at a given time). The leaves are already starting to change outside my window.

Heading down to Wellfleet and getting a table within 5 min. of arriving at a restaurant, if not immediately.

Sam Octoberfest is absolutely disgusting. The rest of their seasonals are quite good (love Sam Summer!) but I'll pass on Octoberfest every single day.

Thankfully I can get both Fat Tire and Anchor Steam here in the Midwest now. Only beer missing is Alaskan Amber...

Oh man. This thread has officially killed me. Today I went for a ride to Dothan on my motorcyle with my buddy, who is also from Massachusetts. Riding along, I couldn't help but be distracted with how hot I was. And I just felt that something was wrong. After spending a full summer here in Alabama, I've become used to the oppressive heat and humidity, so I figured that wasn't it. But while walking around the Shoppette, it dawned on me what it was in the form of a Sam's Octoberfest display. Here it was, almost halfway through September, and I was dealing with crazy heat and humidity with no relief in sight. Where if I was back home, I'd be doing what everyone else has already described. One of my favorite events of the year is heading to Castle Island in Southie and needing a sweatshirt to deal with the cool, crispness of the wind coming in off the harbor. Seeing that Octoberfest today forced the realization that I won't get to experience any of that all this year really was a harsh blow. Thank god I am hear for a really kickass reason (flight school for Black Hawks), or the suck factor would be just through the roof.

I used to hang out with my friends during Halloween. They made me trick or treat (I guess you can never be to old to trick or treat). Now it seems they've forgotten me.  Sad Winter is almost coming which is my favorite season. Shoveling snow after a blizzard to me is fun. My family just planted a new maple tree and most of the leaves are already red.

Ah, fall: the blissful reminder that, once again, I have to go back to school.  grumpy 

I don't think we're getting a "fall" season this year here in the YYC. I mean, sure I can't go outside in my Bermuda shorts and beer at 10:30PM and not freeze my legs off, but the days have been staying around the 16-24C mark during the afternoon.

Calgary doesn't get fall that much anymore. When it isn't bleeding warm for a September day, it's raining or snowing (yes, I said the dreaded "S" word in September. Every Calgarian has seen snow at LEAST once in September here in their lifetime).

I really, personally don't care for fall, because its just a reminder that the girls are putting away their skimpy clothes, the outdoor pools will be closing (or are already closed) and I have to get up and go to school.

Oh well, c'est la vie.

Fall in New England is my favorite. I grew up for about 6 years of my life in Lexington Massachusetts. It is so lovely there in the Autumn. I miss it. When I think of October and Halloween I think of my childhood there.
Enough about flying lets talk about me!
