    How do you feel about fall? It's our first chilly day here in NC...It's actually 60 degrees but my house is much colder. I prefer summer by far!

    Fall is my favourite season by far; I love the nip in the air and the brilliant sunshine reflecting off the leaves.

    This is a really hard one for me. I do love Fall but I would absolutely love it if it didn't mean that snow was on it's way or even if it snowed everywhere else except for the roads:D

    If we had it in AZ right now I would love it :) that being said I am not a fan of snow so I like a little chill but not full out winter weather.

    None of the poll choices really matched my feelings, so I didn't vote.

    I really like fall. The colors of the trees are really pretty, and the weather is so nice. I love weather in the 60's. I like not needing heat or air conditioning. I like being able to wear a variety of clothes without being too hot or too cold.

    I LOVE fall! I do enjoy winter, as well, but I absolutely love sunny days with a chill in the air. One of the best things about moving south is that fall actually lasts more than a week, which is always what it seemed like in WI.

    I am so sick of hot weather by now, so yes, I'm looking forward to cooler temps.

    I know it sounds weird, but I like no sleeves or long sleeves - nothing in between. So August, Sept, and October, I'm always fussing over what to wear to school. I love my sweaters!

    I love it. Last night was the first night I was really and truly COLD when we went out to the movies, but that just means i can bundle up and snuggle up to my BF.

    There wasn't a choice for "I don't know". I currently live in an area that has all four seasons, but this is very new to me. My hometown stays hot nearly all year, so I'm experiencing my very first real fall season. I'll let you know next year how I feel. :)

    I like it but it is my bad time of the year as far as my allergies go. I have already been in the hospital for 4 nights with pneumonia and had to go back last Saturday night because I was having trouble breathing again. Fall in Louisiana is actually almost a joke, it gets cool enough that the pollen starts flowing and it doesn't rain so nothing washes away the pollen.

    I love Fall weather. I don't mind the cooler temperatures. I just wish it would last longer so Winter could be shorter!

    I agree with TeacherNY.....I love the colors, the smell, the bite in the air, especially after the heat we had in September. I don't mind winter, but come February I have had enough.

    I LOVE the fall & fall fashions! If it could be in the low 70s all yr, that would be fine w/ me. I just hate hot weather period!...& sweltering summers are the worst!

    I love Florida fall... it actually cools down a bit (ok, in the upper 70s...), but at night it can get down in the 50s. Such a welcome change from the last 7 months of sweat and humidity :)

    I love each season as it comes.

    I HATE being cold though I love snow.

    I love the beauty of fall but hate how short the days are; there's something so demoralizing about driving to school in the dark and returning in the dark.

    I become wistful in the Fall but I love the temperature change. It's the right amount of cool with warm while the sun bears down on you touching your face in the morning. You can walk through a shadow and feel Winter's approach and step out again to remember Summer's embrace.

    I look forward to each season...Right now I'm loving fall- football, the changing leaf colors, apple cider, pumpkins...Taking my sweaters out today and changing my closet over for the new season...

    I hate fall because it indicates winter is coming. Bare branches in paintings? Pretty. Bare branches around me? I just cannot stand that. :(

    I love fall!! I would love it more if I lived in an area that actually had a good fall, but it's not too bad here. We don't really get much of a winter so I guess it's no big deal for fall to be here!

    Fall is my favorite season (though I'm sure spring will be my favorite in about 6 months.) Cool nights and warm days, football, pumpkins and cider, football, Halloween...what's not to love!

    I love fall, but we usually don't get one here. Before the leaves can turn, the storms come and rip the leaves off the trees! I long to live in a place with four distinct seasons, even if just for a year or 2.

    I'm getting quite frustrated this fall. The weather is EXTREMELY erradic here in San Francisco. It was 85 in my room two days last week, so I finally wore a tank top and light skirt the third day, when it dipped down to 60. Different parts of the city have different micro climates as well. So you can't just look up the weather-the fog can make one area freezing while the sun and hilltop view can roast another area. If I knew what to expect, it would be a LOT easier.

    That said, I love the weather where I live, about 20 miles north. The weather there is very constant, as we aren't by the water. It gets very wet and damp in the winter, but still no snow, which is all I require. ;)

    Fall/spring 2 fav seasons. Normally when winter comes I hate it tho!! This yr after the REALLY hot summer we had. And the fact that my 2nd job in retail is very HOT in our store most of the time, and last yr I really enjoyed when thecustomers comming in and out always let in the cool air and the place felt better!!! It has actually not really been a cold day yet...It was cold yesturday morning, but thats about it!! I am going out to check it out right now!! I am hot natured but somewhere in the middle when it comes to temp if it's not too hot or too cold out its perfect for me!!
