I'm half and half. I miss my kiddos who are back in school, and I am NOT best pleased with the rain and cold temperatures we are having. But I do like the fall the best too. I like the warm days and the cold nights, I like being able to get a fire going in the fireplace and making chili and that kind of stuff again. I've been a complete baking fool this week since the weather has been icky. Ken is already complaining that I am trying to make him fat!

Me, too! I love the crisp weather, the fall foods, clothes, apples, football, used to love the smell of the leaves burning, but thats against the law now!

I love Autumn; my favourite season. The trees are really turning now and we have Christmas and Hogmanay to look forward to in the depths of winter. Wonderful!

I would love to live where there is Spring, Fall and a little bit of winter at Christmas time.

Oh yes, we have all of the seasons here in Iowa. What I was saying is, I wish I could live somewhere were it didn't get hot. I have no sweat glands and summer is very hard on me.

Don't get me wrong, I like the fall too but I'm just not ready for it yet.

I love the fall weather. We are still in the 70's at night and high 80's in the daytime - one day last week 90's. I love less humidity also. We probably won't have any cold weather til the middle of November.

Definitely. While I was growing up, I was such a staunch anti-school kid, and it depressed the h... out of me when the summer break was over and I had to drag myself back to school. It was so bad that even now, after quite a few years of no longer having to go to school, this time of the year automatically makes me sad.

There are a few nice things though, there are some delicious things coming into season, like chestnuts, different kinds of mushrooms, pears etc. and when you go up near the mountain area (well... not quite yet but around mid October), the colourful trees are so beautiful!
