I know snow is coming and I do not like it.

10/6/2019 7:35 AM

Girls in sweaters. Especially with horizontal stripes.

10/6/2019 12:15 AM

I can finally stand the thought of my husband hugging me without the fear of dying from heat stroke!

10/5/2019 9:35 PM

I'm looking forward to many things, but one isn't on your list. With cooler days the windows are closed more often and that keeps the toxic fumes of artificial fragrance sprays in the houses of the people who reek of that stuff. It doesn't keep the reek of laundry drier sheets from escaping exhausts into the otherwise wonderful fragrant fall air.

10/5/2019 1:18 PM

leaving for Fl.

10/5/2019 8:59 AM

Autumn leaf colors are so beautiful and never get old. It is too bad that the white stuff (snow) comes right after.

10/4/2019 9:54 PM

I look forward to witnessing my neighbor's annual harvest and distribution of his marijuana plots which though reported to police remain a booming yet mysterious business.

10/4/2019 2:26 PM

10/3/2019 10:12 PM

Literally nothing. I want summer back!

10/3/2019 3:31 PM

NFL football is my only respite from the increasingly cold and gloomy weather that is typical of autumn. The colors are pretty but those days pass so quickly.

10/3/2019 12:17 PM

Returning to my winter home and becoming a permanent resident. Buh-bye, New York!

10/3/2019 11:33 AM

Nothing. Hate that winter will follow.

10/3/2019 9:40 AM

Going to Florida for winter.

10/3/2019 8:40 AM

Filling the freezer with venison and then flying to Florida for six months!

10/2/2019 7:57 PM

I love the fall colors, but I love to gather the fresh tomatoes, peppers and the butternut squash.

10/2/2019 5:35 PM

Musky fishing

10/2/2019 8:24 AM

Cooler temperatures and no bugs, and apple season.

Part on my Autumn celebration includes Winter Welcoming, and "Snow, Glorious Snow!!!"

10/2/2019 5:12 AM

I'm not ready for another North Country winter. Can I just win the lottery and move away from this cold, frigid, high taxed, freedom sucking socialist utopia called N-NYS

10/1/2019 6:03 PM

Only 6 months till spring.

10/1/2019 5:14 PM

High heating bills, stupid drivers and getting sick....can hardly wait

10/1/2019 4:43 PM

That’s right America’s favorite past time. Next to baby making

going to florida

10/1/2019 2:55 PM

Fall is my all time favorite time of year. Pumpkins on porches. Colorful mums adorning their entranceways. Leaves slowly turning colors and falling. Donuts and hot apple cider. Sitting on the porch with friends sipping hot cider enjoying the cool breeze. Nothing better than Fall.

10/1/2019 11:52 AM

The fact that it means only one more year of this Moron in Chief! R'amen!

Going into a state of ecstasy after drinking the blood of the unborn beneath the pale light of a full moon

10/1/2019 9:36 AM

Nothing-hate the cold

10/1/2019 9:22 AM

I'll be spending this here fall with Granny test'n out King Cuomo's new "red flag" gun law, in joke, on cousin Ricky Bob just in time for his hunt'n season! He'll have to go out shoot'n his deer with his Chinese made sling shot 'til somebody figures out we were a pull'n their leg! Good times and good laughs in New York of the nation's newest King's rule with his crony lefties. Ol' Ricky is gonna be as spitt'n mad as Hillary Clinton on sun up after Election Day 2016! And even though the King's new law says you can 'maybe' get your gun back next year, good luck with that cousin Ricky! Once Granny and I make our tom-fool'n report on you, you'll be a marked man in a bureaucratic system of mistrust who won't be able to fart without the King's henchmen knock'n on your door to question you why (and of course tax'n ya)! That'll tickle a funny bone!

10/1/2019 9:10 AM

I hate autumn and cooler temperatures, which leads to winter, so no I don't like anything about this time of year.

10/1/2019 8:58 AM

Our landscapes are very beautiful and natural through all seasons. We need to protect the natural beauty of our area!

10/1/2019 8:51 AM

Leaving for Florida!

10/1/2019 8:44 AM

This is the North Country, so I am looking forward to being online all night, sleeping until 11am, drinking 30 beers a day, never going to work but complaining about the economy, vaping, scratchin my tickets, illegal ATV'n, and pretending that my 3rd grade education allows me to have legitimate opinions on complex world issues and political theory.

10/1/2019 8:07 AM

Love this time of year. Cool crisp morning and warm days. Garden harvest ,canning backing and the colors of Fall.

10/1/2019 7:57 AM

Looking forward to Climate Change! Looking forward to the hot weather! Looking forward to Trump 2020! Keep America Great! Arrest and deport ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS!

10/1/2019 6:25 AM

I'm looking forward to spring!

Nice getting back into a routine when school starts, but then I have to fight off my Seasonal Depression Disorder. After December 21, the shortest day for daylight, I pay attention to how much more day light we get each day even if it's just a few minutes. It psyches me up to get through the winter.

9/30/2019 7:19 PM


9/30/2019 7:11 PM

6 more months until spring

9/30/2019 5:08 PM

I look forward to lead peeping! It is relaxing and takes the edge off of the next season!

9/30/2019 4:30 PM


9/30/2019 4:16 PM

Heading south!

9/30/2019 4:12 PM

Sweater weather! Baking and cooking!

9/30/2019 3:37 PM

Obviously, you too are flaming liberals aa you edited my last week’s comment just enough to protect your chosen Cuomo, the dick-tator, and the real point I was making! No curse words nor lies were used, just common sense comments; when you edit anyones’ comments, those comments then become yours’ and not the writer’s. You compromise yourself and your website, just like all the social media sites, when you choose to dictate a commenter’s thoughts. Just like the lying, lawless left, you profess freedom of speech, but only so long as you can control it. Venezuelan socialism here we come! JHD

9/30/2019 2:52 PM

Moving permanently south to lower taxes and a better life.

9/30/2019 2:43 PM

Heading south.

9/30/2019 2:37 PM

End of mowing season!

9/30/2019 11:50 AM

The high heating bills.

9/30/2019 11:39 AM

Surviving till next Autumn!

9/30/2019 11:19 AM

I love motorcycle rides under the Fall Colors. Also, I love the great harvests and fresh products

9/30/2019 10:49 AM

Nothing, snow to follow, hate it.

9/30/2019 10:07 AM

Fall is the best season of the year!

9/30/2019 9:30 AM

As soon as fall comes to a close, I'm heading to Florida for the winter. See you in the spring !

9/30/2019 9:28 AM

It being done and over with and back to spring and summer

9/30/2019 9:24 AM

Trapping, best time to get those fat coons, little known fact is raccoon cracklins taste like bacon and the tllow is great for winter donuts, the furs wort money too.

9/30/2019 8:51 AM

Back to home in Fl

9/30/2019 8:44 AM


9/30/2019 8:38 AM

Tons of snow.

9/30/2019 8:30 AM

I love the fall and being in the woods this time of year. I don't do the hiking or trails because of the hunters. I wish there were no hunting for a couple of years to let our animals grow. Talk about climate change... what do you expect when we kill everything that maintains our environment?

9/30/2019 8:15 AM

Buffalo Bills!
