Where's Autumn?

Throughout the summer I longed for autumn...the crisp weather, the slanted rays of sunshine, the beautifully decorated porches and yards festive with mums and pumpkins. It seems that in the wink of the eye we've gone from scorching summer lethargy to way-too-cool dark, rainy, gloomy pre-winter. All of the magazines are featuring Christmas motifs and I'm just ready to settle into a nice, long fall. Shall I just hope for Indian Summer?
