Spring. It means the sucky snow is (mostly) over, it's starting to warm up, flowers begin to bloom, trees leaf out, lilac-scent fills the air, and the robins and hummingbirds return.


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

Winter, because when you awaken one morning to find out that all that was vibrant and colorful in autumn has been replaced with a bleak, uninhabited wasteland of snow and ice, your ancestral ice age-era survival instincts kick in, and you get the strangest urge to bring a bolt-action rifle with you wherever you go, in case a herd of wild caribou approaches your car.

Winter.

Here in California, it gets pleasantly cold. If you are coastal, like me, you don't get snow so it gives me an excuse to put on a jacket, something which me and my friends actually wait for every year. The day we can wear our jackets again.

There is very little transition between winter/spring and fall/winter, etc so it basically comes down to it either being summer, or winter. Summer means fires abound, which freaks everyone out, so Summer isn't a whole lot of fun here.

Haha summer isn't too wonderful here... 100+ days of 110ºf weather. Winter brings snow birds to clog our streets. Fall brings rains and flooding. Spring it is..

Probably Fall. Worst of the heat is over and it doesn't rain as much as in Spring.

Winter. Whats there to say? Snow, dark natural beauty and truely unique athmosphere. Its the most inspiring season, for me at least. The second best is summer since its time of relaxation.

I usually default to Summer, because there's no school. But weather-wise, my favorite season would be Autumn.

It used to be summer, but since I got hayfever 3 years ago, my spring's and summer's now consist of me sneezing constantly and popping pills, so I've voted for autumn. I love autumnal colours. I hate winter, I hate being cold, and I hate snow.

Fall, no questions asked. Who likes summer? I live in North Carolina so it's almost always hot regardless of the season. It gets up to 115.

Can I have a 5th option since I actually have stuff from every season in various places of CA and NV?

Depends on what place at what time of year:

CA: Can be hot depending on exactly where you're at. Northern Cal Redwoods regions always seem pleasant if a bit rainy.

Sierra mountains have the most indecisive and severe turns of weather. Pleasant to kinda hot summer, severe allergies in spring, winter used to be tons of snow for a long time but now it just dumps all at once, fall has an invigorating feel about it, not sure why. I like grey cloudy skies actually.

Just about everywhere else is warm to hot like in the central valley...smog in So. Cal... rainy as you tend to get out coastward all along the shoreline. Rains in all places as you approach winter.

NV: Mostly warm to hot for most the year, but often windy at the foot of mountains. Can get rather cold with windchill. Rains quite a bit and occasionally it will snow. NV is one big desert with rolling hills and basically is the other side of the Sierra mountains region hence sierra nevadas.

Could not agree more. You can always put more clothes on to get warm...but can only take off so much (even less to be socially acceptable) to get cool. (Also I did live in SD and then ND and then onto MN)...I don't live in MN anymore (very unfortunately) but my heart still remains there and I will return there one day.

Winter is the prettiest for me because snow is pretty, but the car wrecks because of ice and lousy driving make it ugly.

Spring is like, 2 weeks because Ohio is lame.

Summer is always too hot, and I have summer schoolwork.

I like Fall, it's perfect.

When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last.

I hope that I do! I mow the lawn on Saturday and I feel horrible until Thursday. I also have some kind of Sun allergy because I have, for the last couple of years, gotten a rash on my forearms and my legs. Sunscreen helps, but I still get them.

To sum that up: Allergies SUCK

I'm going to have to say fall, it's so nice when because it cools down enough for the bugs to die, the changing colours of the trees is nice, and it's warm enough to just wear a shirt but cool enough to wear a jacket if you felt like it. Plus there's Halloween. =D

Spring by far. More specifically, the time between Mid-April and Late-May. Fresh, warm, not muggy and sweaty like Summer is.

I would like Spring, but thanks to the torrents of rain the season usually brings to the UK I end up really jaded by the crazily unpredictable weather by the end of it.

Last week I was walking home, and it literally went from a sunny day to slashing it down within two minutes. By the end of my 15-minute walk to the train station my underwear was about as wet as it would be if I'd jumped in a lake.

So Summer it is!

Winter. It has a very poignant feeling, and occasionally a very poignant smell. I'm not far North enough to get snow, so it's pretty without being freezing.
