What's best about autumn? The college football season coming around, and getting ready to ski.
What's your favorite season? Spring especially here, because I love to hike amid the spring wildflowers when everything turns from brown to green. But I like all the seasons.
How does autumn here compare to those in other places you've lived? I'm from Colorado Springs, but I moved to Seattle a while back. The weather here is the best anywhere. I love the distinct changes in temperature and the nice Indian summers. In Seattle, it's always either raining or not raining.
Are you dreading utility bills this winter? No. I'm a cold person I keep my thermostat at 65.

What's best about autumn?The smell, the last days of the farmers' market, the colors in the trees, the crispness in the air and my birthday. It's my favorite season.
How does autumn here stack up against autumns elsewhere? I was born in Colorado Springs and I've spent almost all my autumns here. I'll stick with this.
Are you dreading utility bills this winter? I just hope for the best and bundle up.

What's best about fall? The smells, the leaves changing color. And Halloween is my favorite holiday. Fall is the best season.
How does autumn here compare to other places you've lived? I just moved here from Michigan. The color-changes are way more intense there reds, oranges, yellows. Plus, here it gets really hot during the day and freezing cold at night. I'm not used to that.
Is autumn or summer best? I like the transition period between the two, where it's just starting to get cold and you wear your hoodie.
Are you dreading utility bills this winter? My utilities are included in my rent, so no. I hope for everyone else's sake they don't go up too much, though.
What's your favorite season? Summer, because I'm an avid gardener. I like the fall, too, though. I enjoy the change of seasons.
What's to enjoy about fall? The cooler weather, the color in the leaves, the fact that the plants get to go dormant and have the kind of rest we get to enjoy every evening. And snuggling up in front of the fire.
Are you worried about utility costs this winter? Not particularly. The utility department does a pretty good job of managing resources and pricing gas and oil.
