    What is your favorite season?

    The "hot or cold?" poll made me wonder about people's favorite season.

    I'm less concerned with the results than the "why?"

    Basketball season ;). But I know what ya mean.

    I'd say the fall. Iowa is beautiful, it's awesome sweatshirt weather, and we say hello to yoga pants!

    Re: What is your favorite season?

    I voted fall.

    I was a Spring Guy for many years, but converted to autumn over time.

    I dislike the late fall/early-winter transition as opposed to the opposite: In mid-fall, January is just around the corner; By spring equinox, winter is in the rear-view.

    With no such context, Labor Day to late-October is my favorite.

    Wabbit season. No, duck season.

    My apologies to anyone under the age of 35 that does not understand this post.

    Can't believe spring didn't get a vote yet. It was a close second for me, with first being fall due to football and basketball.

    Fall. Leaves change, temps get cooler, football, Halloween, Thanksgiving. All good things.

    Except in Texas, fall doesn't start until November, and even then it'll stay 80 until December.

    Re: What is your favorite season?

    I voted fall as well. The cool evenings with the 70 degree days. The sky is usually just an incredible blue.

    And of course football.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Re: What is your favorite season?

    Fall is clearly superior to all other seasons. Beautiful weather, good holiday, football starts, premier league starts, baseball ends.

    Spring is a close second just in terms of weather, only thing Summer has going for it is the students are mostly gone.




    Eyes closed, head first, can't lose.

    Re: What is your favorite season?

    Count me in for fall. Had our first football camp last week and its got me itching to get rolling. HS season opens in less than a month.
    I like the first snow of the season as well because no matter how small it is, it usually paralyzes everything so I get to spend some time inside with family and not worry about getting anywhere.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.
