    I’m thankfull that the temp will finally drop, even though it’s been cool by summer standards around here, especially the humidity.

    But the turning of the leaves, the crispness in the air, that’s nice. Spring and Fall are my favorite times: the temp is low and the humidity lower. Paradise.Report

    Autumn is beautiful here in the northwest. I regret that I won’t have a motorcycle this year to ride through the country and watch the leaves change.Report

      I’m going to Seattle in Mid-October for the long weekend because I have not seen fall in 5 years!

      San Francisco is always pretty cool (except from September-Thanksgiving) but it is never quite like fall. It is too warm for the leaves to change color and the air is cool but not crisp. In the Northeast, fall produces a nice crisp scent in the air like apples and roasting potatoes.

      I’d live in almost perpetual October if I could.Report

      Of all the places I’ve lived, the Pacific Northwest has the best autumns, lasting a good three months with plenty of color that starts towards the end of August and lingers well into November. Spring too was wonderful.Report

    Nice piece Mike. Fall is my favorite time of year as well. I missed it terribly when I lived in Southern California. It’s also always seemed appropriate to me that the Jewish New Year is in the fall because it coincides with the harvest season and the winding down of the old year. It is indeed a time of spiritual renewal.Report
