No, I like variety - the spice of life. I would hate to live somewhere without a distinct change of seasons. Sunny and 73-83 deg every day would get old for me. It would be like a Groundhog Day movie. But I know some people love that.

Agreed. I do like fall scenery (although I'd rather be on a beach LOL), but I cannot deal with <40 degree weather and snow.

Well its a good thing fall, like other seasons, lasts 3 months
The foliage does not last only a few weeks either. The great thing is that not all trees change at the same time. The Twin Cities are entering the post peak period, where lots of trees are bare or mostly bare, yet we still have some trees that are still entirely green! There's been decent colour since the end of September. Early October the areas around the river started peaking first and now late October most parts of the cities have peaked. November's a bit "duller" I imagine, but its still a fall month with mostly fall-like weather. I consider highs from the 70s to 40s and lows from 50s to 20s to be in the realm of "fall weather." Down south its different. In Texas a low in the 30s is wintry, but here its more like mid to late fall.

Winter, like any season, is what you make of it. I personally wanna learn snowboarding this season. I love winter activities and love not having to spend a lot of money just to drive or fly once a year to just see some snow. I love having it come to me. My family spends thousands of dollars to travel from Florida to see snow in the mountains.

Fall is much more than a few weeks. After Labor Day, it’s time to start tailgating again and enjoy the return of cooler weather. Fresh apples and cider come on in October, along with pumpkin patches and haunted houses. The leaves turn in throughout October and after Halloween, the holidays start. It’s time to bundle up and visit family and friends for Thanksgiving. Throughout December, there are holiday parades and parties and with any luck, a white Christmas on December 25. As I began, fall is much more than a few weeks.

Doesn't Minneapolis have highs in the 30s the whole second half of November?

Of course, if one's definition of "fall" is "September, October, and November, with everything that happens in them," then fall lasts three months. It lasts three months everywhere. What I question is whether this amazing, soul-inspiring crisp weather and foliage lasts three months. Actually, it sounds like you're even including December in fall, so hmmm.

First of all, fall lasts until Dec 21. So it follows that everything that happens in those three months comprises fall, including but not limited to the foliage change.

This thread is about seasonal weather, not cultural activities. Believe it or not, people in non-four-seasons climates also pick pumpkins, celebrate Halloween, and visit Grandma at Thanksgiving.
