I think, if forced to choose a favorite season, it would be Fall. Growing up in the Midwest, summer, though welcome, tends to be too hot and humid to be truly enjoyable, though the body does adapt. Spring, well everyone seems to welcome the sight of new green after the long cold of Winter. But it seems a bit more volatile, weatherwise, and sometimes it feels like Spring is a victim of its own popularity. Winter, well, as a kid there's never enough snow, and as an adult there is far too much snow and ice!
It does tend to rain more in the fall in Texas, but that is not a bad thing usually...Of course if it's scheduled to rain on Halloween, like it is this year, well, I know a certain 3 Monkeys that would prefer it wait another day or two before that strange water begins to fall from the sky again.
Along with Fall comes Halloween, and the fun that can entail, especially with kids in the home. The Monkeys have happily accepted our version of Halloween night, with costumes, movies, pizza and popcorn in return for them giving away candy to other peoples kids, and not going door to door themselves. Then not long after, comes Thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for again this year, though we have certainly had our share of health issues and other stressors!
In addition to the above, Fall also generally begins the season known in Texas as No Air Conditioning Season. Yes, usually the temps and humidity drop enough to turn off the A/C and open the windows. Yay! That in itself is almost enough to make Fall my favorite.
So there you have it...my take on the seasons, and my personal favorite. What is your favorite season, readers?
