Fall has always been my favorite time of the year. I like spring and summer, but totally dislike winter.
I love the smells and colors of fall, the temperatures are always moderate and comfortable. Being a born & raised Houstonian I doubt I could ever adjust to areas where it's already cold, I know I could not enjoy months and months of snow & frigid cold weather.
My best friend is a YANKEE, born in NY. She and her husband worked for the airlines and on their off days they would travel. Thirty something years ago, it was a long, frigid cold spell in NY and they decided to go where it was warm on their get-away. They headed here to Houston because the DH had a family member here.
She said when they left they had to bundle in heavy coats, when they got off the plane it was so nice & warm down here. They fell in love with the weather. Went back to NY and the temps were still frigid. They talked about it was was moved down here within a few months. She said she swore she would never endure another freezing cold winter & she never has - moved here, raised 2 kids and now has 5 grandchildren. Sadly her husband passed away this past Friday, the services were today.
