I don't think so, unless you're so far into the Midwest you're practically in Canada. The lower Midwest has fall colours lasting way into November. Some people think that Minnesota has snow by Halloween, which yes they did have a blizzard in '91 lol but that's also a great exaggeration. Fall in the Upper Midwest is chilly but has colours that can rival the Northeast, while the Lower Midwest has pretty colours and warmer weather that makes them last later into the season.

If you go too far north though its mostly pine trees, and too far west there's barely any trees.

Albuquerque has four seasons but not a month of snow on the ground....more like six hours. If we had a month of snow people might know how to drive in it. Ski areas close by have plenty of snow for people who want it.

On paper, it would appear that way. In reality, we usually have two seasons, Summer & Winter. There are only two months out of the entire year that it hasn't snowed along the Front Range: July and August. Plus, we can go from furnace to A/C within 48 hours in the Spring, on a fairly regular basis. We're just too unpredictable to declare we have 4 definitive seasons.
