Whither autumn?

Looking eastward into Berkshire County, Massachusetts, from Petersburgh Pass, State Route 2, Rensselaer County, New York, late afternoon, 16 October 2009.

At least in this part of the United States, autumn seems to have joined spring in the Land of the Fugitive Seasons. Temperatures in the Northeast have been about 10 degrees below average, it's currently snowing in southern Vermont and New Hampshire, and Albany may see a few flurries later today. Why do I have the feeling that winter will be the one season that opts to stick around for a very long time?
