Living in Northern Minnesota we have the 4 seasons and Fall is the best. The tree are turning now and the garden crops are almost ended and canning almost done. No bugs, cool and no humidity. Smells so good in the early am and evening.

I don't mind early fall, but its a harbinger of winter, which I hate. And once the time changes and it gets dark at 5pm, I am pretty miserable. I have seasonal affective disorder too, so the gray, blah days turn me into an old grouch. I just want to hibernate til spring. I tend to eat more carbs, sleep more and be very grumpy til spring.

I don't like fall at all. Everything is turning brown & dying. It seems like it's dark more than it's light. It always depresses me. Winter can be cozy at times but there's nothing like Spring - when it's not too hot, not too cold, no humidity, everything is coming alive again - re-birth. If I could find a place where it's Spring weather all year round, that's where I'd want to live.
I'm all about the food!

I think most everyone doesn't have to deal with the "gray" as much as you do. I went to visit my sister and we left beautiful weather in Oregon to visit REALLY cold, gray, foggy, rainy weather in Seattle. We went by the little passenger train. It was so cold that we only stayed for about 45 minutes. We were soaked and freezing!!!

I for one am glad that fall is here. I can put up with the early darkness in fall and then the snow in winter and the awakening of nature in spring, however the heat of summer is something that I dread. Perhaps this isn't as much a vote for the fall season but a vote against summer.

I LOVE the fall, winter and spring, and I live in an area that has all the seasons. I love the assortment of hay rides, weinie roasts and fall colors coming up, actually the maples are just starting to turn. I love snow, sled riding, cross country skiing, and the spring is just special with the rebirth of the plants and trees. I dread the heat and humidity that comes with my summers, they just sap my energy. We got air-conditioning three years ago and that has been a blessing for this post menopausal person. I like the early darkness, because we go to bed so early, it is difficult to fall asleep when it is daylight. And it makes doing chores more logical. The goats do not like to got to bed until dusk, so I am doing chores just before I turn in during the summer. Now I can do their chores when it fits my schedule, not theirs!

Anyone else?
Seeing where you live definitely will color your opinion but we are in MY VERY VERY FAVORITE weather/season. And if that is shouting, so be it!!! ;o)
