View Full Version : The best parts of fall?

10-24-2012, 08:55 AM
It's freezing outside, but I have my window open so I can listen to the rain. I've got fuzzy socks on and big mug of lemon ginger tea. I'm excited for Halloween next week and for the 2012-2013 NBA season to start.

What's everyone favorite parts of Autumn?

My birthday, around the autumnal equinox in the Northern Hemisphere.

orange, yellow, red...the typical colors of autumn to me; cooler weather yet not frigid winter; candy; spooky, scary, horror atmosphere, and HALLOWEEN.

Autumn really pisses me off. It's gloomy, damp and depressing. We know it's going to get colder so I'd rather just get straight into winter and have done with it. Bah.

I LOVE autumn!

1. Dark Nights
2. Dark Mornings
3. Clocks go back an hour in UK (A hour of more sleep for me!!!)
4. No chance of getting sunburnt! (pale skin)
5. And TV always gets a little better.

The harvest and the cool, crisp mornings.

The leaves, the color of the light, the crisp feel, the jack o'lanterns and Halloween costumes. Almost everything! Hot cider, mugs of cocoa...

Fall? We're already knee deep in snow!*

*Okay, maybe in Calgary. But you get the idea!

My relationship is long distance (He's in New Hampshire, I'm in Oregon) and all that my partner can talk about is how he hopes there isn't snow on Halloween again.

I have hopes that eventually our temperature will go down enough so that I can shut off the a/c and open windows. Then I will LOVE fall!

We're having a bit of a warm spell at the moment. I think it's supposed to be near 80 tomorrow. Definitely not average temps this time of year. I'm in shorts right now. Last Saturday, I was wearing sweat pants .

The smell of the fallen leaves (but not the raking of).

Part-timers and weekenders leave the mountain and peace settles in for the winter. Cold, wet weather moves in. Two bodies exhausted from working every day for seven months draped by wool blankets watching football, not caring which team. The snow flies and covers the brown earth with a cleansing layer of white. Only the animals come by.

Bah, I say. Bah.

Autumn there Spring here (weather is very similar though)

I love that it's starting to cool down, the summer heat really takes it out of ya and to finally be able to have clothes on and not feel like you're in a sauna is fantastic.

I love that the grass goes from brown nad prickly to rich and green, although I hate having to pay somone to mow it.

The only good thing about fall is that when the snow falls, you finally get that layer of insulation provided by it. The unbearable cold that precedes the snow is tortuous. I recall a year when the snow did not fly until New Years Eve. The hell! It would be -25C and the air outside would be as cold inside, that the only thing you could imagine worse was the shock of a blustering, naked wind from the north with all of its callous indigence barreling down treeless streets.
