    I love this time of year, where things seem to slow down, when it's time to put on the jeans and a parka, and soon a winter coat. I love Halloween for some strange reason, decorate a bit inside every year. I love how the air smells. I love knowing that everyone else (in cold states) is hunkering down. It's like one big cuddle. icon_wink.gif

    How about you? Do you decorate? Do you drive to see leaves? What do you think about when you go out to throw out the trash and feel a nice chill in the air?

    You know, I always hated winter, and since fall was a prelude to winter, I hated it, too. But now that I'm spending my first fall in a place where it really doesn't feel like the season changed at all...I kinda miss it. Go figure.

    We don't have real seasons here in LA. When Fall comes around, we just put on a sweatshirt. If it gets really cold, we just put shoes on, instead of flip-flops. icon_biggrin.gif

    Here in Phoenix, I just busted out a long-sleeve tee for the first time for a late-evening softball game the other night. I was pretty psyched about it.

    We moved from SoCal to Salt Lake a few years ago and now I'm beginning to detest fall. It means that snow is on the way and I've developed a loathing for snow.

    Bring back my sun and warm weather!!

    Hey, if I shovel a shit load of snow does that mean I don't need to hit the gym?

    jprichva saidWell now, missy, it seems there's no pleasing you.


    Naw...I'm just getting a bit nostalgic in my old age or something. It is the onset of old age, right? I mean, considering you've been there, done that, and received the tee shirt, I figured you're an authority. So it is an age thing, right? Am I a step from senility?

    I agree with the OP - I love this time of the year too. I live in a tourist/mountain region, so its really beautiful when the leaves change.

    I love fall, the changing of colors on trees, the chilll in the wind, relaxed feeling everywhere. Just going to mountains or a lake and watch trees. Its the time of year that takes me to romance mood.

    Some didn't get to see any color this year in MN because it got 20 degrees F one day and the leaves fell off green--first time this ever happened. It 's been unseasonablly cold here all year. We certainly aren't seeing any global warming here in the midwest. We have broke an unbelievable number or cold records this year. I'm thinking of moving to a warmer climate. We just don't see much warm weather here anymore. I hate putting so much clothes on.

    The worst I hate about winter is the darkness here. It's dark when many go to work and dark when they come home and many suffer health problems due to a lack of light. The hospitals get full in the winter here because of all the accidents due to ice and snow and illnesses increase. It's not a very nice time for a lot of people and I want to move to Phoenix. But they got Valley Fever there and that is bad too. icon_sad.gif It also gets very hot in the summer there.

    Nah, I dislike Fall, I associate it with coming back to school and winding down as the temperature goes down. I prefer Spring as I wait and hope that the next day will be warmer.

    I love the fall as well. In PA the mountains are so beautfiul as all of the leaves are changing and there are so many trails to walk and bike around where I live. Don't get me wrong I do love the summer and the warm weather but there is just something about fall that makes me feel at ease. Besides I love cuddling and the slightly colder weather makes it perfect. For some reason I seem to work out harder in the colder months as well, maybe its because I'm preparing for the next spring/summer I guess.

    At first glance, I thought this was about falling in love. In China.

    I too, love fall with man.
    And with that man whom I so love, I enjoy fall.

    Also being from Phoenix, fall just means temperatures under 100degrees. Okay, not always (4 days in a row above 100 this past week). That first cool breeze, the first night you can leave the windows open, the smell of fall air, rotten pumpkins, eggnog.

    It must be nice to have warmer weather year round like in LA or Phoenix, it did not even seem like we had a summer in Chicago this year.

    Fall is so beautiful; I love this time of the year (minus the cooler temperatures).

    I love fall because you can put enough clothes on to stay warm, but when its summer I feel I can never take enough clothes off. icon_lol.gif

    Usually whatever season is coming up at any particular time tends to be my favorite season, but I feel like I tend to look forward to fall more than any other.

    One thing I love about fall is the prospect of the harvest/holiday season and the food that comes with it! Being from a small country town, I always used to enjoy the fall gatherings, festivals, and barbecues that would happen throughout the season. And I definitely enjoy eating the fall foods like turkey and dressing, barbecue pork, and pumpkin pie.. and those SOUPS!! Chili, butternut squash soup, burgoo, loaded baked potato. yum!

    Plus, there's just something about stepping outside on a brisk fall afternoon and seeing the sun at its right-before-sunset stage. The leaves, grass and sky and buildings all kinda seem more colorful and accented. Plus the weather's usually just right here to be able to manage with only a sweater or light jacket.

    And fall really brings people together. From football games to haunted houses/trails, to trick-or-treating, to just spending time walking outside or driving. And of course the paramount event of fall togetherness is always Thanksgiving... good food, good fun, good family time... and of course the Thanksgiving Bondathon.

    Oh and when the air conditioner is finally switched over to the heater in the house... Ahhhh.........

    For some reason, Nickel Creek always seems to be a good thing to listen to during the fall. Buy/borrow the album or download some songs and pop em in your car stereo.

    No, I don't love Fall.
    It's the season where everything dies, or looks dead.
    And, it's the ugly prelude to 6 months of Winter.
    Although, living in San Francisco, I'm extremely lucky.
    We don't get much weather.
    LOL.

    ..Love the Fall. Crisp air and beautiful blue skies, Festivities on the horizon, the colors, the contrast to Summer. So many changes so abruptly. That's why I like it.

    I have a really hard time with fall because:

    - daylight hours rapidly decrease
    - my beautiful yard starts to die and I desperately try in vain to keep it alive for just a little longer
    - it's the advent of winter

    I try to just breathe with deep reverance for the occasional last taste of summerlike days.

    Once winter arrives, I've reluctantly accepted and just move on.
