My local newspaper has its finger on the pulse of the community, such as it (the pulse) is:
More than 50 percent of those who responded to last week's poll are ready to "bring on the fall weather and activities."
In addition to the 54 percent who are ready for fall, 16 percent said they miss summer already, while 21 percent said they like both seasons.
And 9 percent said they hardly notice the difference.
Odes to autumn
