When does autumn officially start this year?

We got our old bungalow in the fall, one reason I like the area of Rockridge is that the tree lined streets remind me of my grandmothers home in Michigan.  I remember driving down the streets and seeing the colorful changing leaves, it made me feel like home.

It has been starting to feel like fall around here, and people talk as if it already is fall as children have been back in school for weeks.  Yet, it isn't.  It's still summer!

The first official day of fall is September 23, 2015 at 4:21 in the early AM.

Here are some poems about the coming of fall from the farmer's almanac:

It is the summer's great last heat,
It is the fall's first chill, they meet.
            -Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt

Autumn has caught us in our summer wear.
           -Phillip Larkin
            British Poet (1922-1986)
