Autumn (British English) or fall (American English) is one of the four temperate seasons. Autumn marks the transition from summer to winter, in September (Northern Hemisphere) or March (Southern Hemisphere), when the duration of daylight becomes noticeably shorter and the temperature cools down considerably. One of its main features is the shedding of leaves from deciduous trees.
Some cultures regard the autumnal equinox as "mid-autumn", while others with a longer temperature lag treat it as the start of autumn. Meteorologists (and most of the temperate countries in the southern hemisphere) use a definition based on months, with autumn being September, October and November in the northern hemisphere, and March, April and May in the southern hemisphere.
In North America, autumn is usually considered to start with the September equinox (21 to 24 September) and end with the winter solstice (21 or 22 December). Popular culture in North America associates Labor Day, the first Monday in September, as the end of summer and the start of autumn; certain summer traditions, such as wearing white, are discouraged after that date. As daytime and nighttime temperatures decrease in the fading sunlight, trees shed their leaves. In traditional East Asian solar term, autumn starts on or around 8 August and ends on or about 7 November. In Ireland, the autumn months according to the national meteorological service, Met Éireann, are September, October and November. However, according to the Irish Calendar, which is based on ancient Gaelic traditions, autumn lasts throughout the months of August, September and October, or possibly a few days later, depending on tradition. In Australia and New Zealand, autumn officially begins on 1 March and ends on 31 May.
I was watching a comedy show about women and their love for fall. The premise of the bit was as the cooler air moves in and the leaves change, women freak out because they can wear all their cute clothes and such.
I realized I’m kind of the same way...but instead of knee-high boots and...

Anyone have a gunsmithing project, build, , etc. they are working on? How's the progress?

I have been in Welches for a couple years, and loving every minute of it. I have also hunted by butt off, with no luck. Being from the East coast, bear is what has really gotten me excited (the long season is great). I have a ton of white tail deer under my belt (bow and gun) and even a pope and...
This is a long read, ladies and Gents..... But if you're into this sort of thing, it's worth reading.

Fall of Saigon...
Well, it is still warm, but we're starting to see the change to Fall here. I thought I'd toss this out for discussion: any Autumn plans? Hunting excursions? Competitions? Gunsmithing projects to while away those rainy days?
