Early fall when the leaves start to change. Summer is a close second! We love eating outside and using the BBQ.

I love Spring. One year I timed my holidays well - early Spring in the Eastern Med; Spring in Scotland and then later Spring in South Africa

For me, spring and or fall, temps are reasonable and everything is changing, the start of leaves and then the end of leaves...This summer here in the midwest has been a killer, today 103 and we are in a drout, not fun, may as well be winter, can't be out doing much..

The fall season always makes me sad...knowing what is coming doesn't make me happy..So spring into summer is when I am the happiest. Moving to a climate that has no snow would thrill me...My daughter is trying to talk me into moving.

I hate the summer...humidity...searing heat....

I like the seasons in this order:

Fall
Winter
Spring
Summer..the reason I put spring after winter is because spring just reminds me that a hot humid summer is around the cornor...VERY HAPPY Fall and winter are the next seasons...

I never did like winter and here in Palm Coast, Fl. we don't get much of it.
I like the warm weather when I can get plants to grow.

My favorite is fall. The temperatures, halloween, beautiful colors, light sweaters, everything about it :-) i still plan on making it to the N.E. states one year for a fall tour

1. Fall
2. Spring - i like seeing everything come back
3. Winter - i like winter, hate scraping my car
4. Summer - ohio summers are getting out of control!

My best gal friend sprinkles cayanne pepper on her crops to prevent that, it works and the veggies are still good!

Let me get this straight....

People can't wait for the summer...
The heat hits...they run in their house to turn on the A/C...they get in their cars and turn on the A/C...they jump in pools to cool off....they run to the beach and jump in th e water to cool off....Why do you love the summer if you can't do anything with the A/C on ?

Across the country temps will be between 100 - 110...Washington DC WILL BE AT 105...ATLANTA ..105... Denver 104...

I thought you meant the old singing group!

I like everything but summer. We don't get the humidity except during the monsoons (storms that some up from Mexico), but we do get smog, fires, and big a/c bills.

I can sell you all 60F with a mixture of sun and light rain.
Remember though at this time of the year sunrises at 0400 and is daylight until 2200.

No whining from me...I have no central air or a pool..I don't go to the beach either. My ac in the car is not always used, I like an open window. I like the summer...must be because I was born on, a hot as hell July day!

Most definitely LOVE WINTER!! Our winters are mild here, and I LOVE the cold!! I have visited family many times in Iowa and other colder states and the snow is amazing too!!!! (I know living in it long term is not the same, but...)

I love winter clothes, holidays, and the weather here!

In contrast, it was 108 here today, which is not bad for this time of year!

Why do I still live in this state!?!?

I can't sleep without AC .I seem to need the AC in my house all day .

I think the difference is that when I was a kid we did not have AC or fans .To cool off we went to the roof of the building we lived in .

The one thing I do is that with the AC on really high I sleep with 2 blankets and find it delightful .
