Yesterday we asked you: How would you describe autumn in Chicago to someone who’s never experienced it before? Here’s what some of you said…
“Your vehicle has a closet full of clothes just in case, flipping your thermostat from A/C to heat is a twice-daily ritual, and your kids run out of hoodies to bring to school in the morning because they forget to bring them home in the afternoon.” — Sue Johnston
“Autumn in Chicago is a very joyful time. Especially in the month of October. We have such wonderful weather. Although are September has been warm, October is still the most joyful time when it comes to Mother Nature. We have beautiful leaves that turn beautiful gold and green. We have beautiful weather as the sun shines most of October. Chicago is a great town — it is the city by the lake. It’s a city with a big heart.” — Lamonte Dixon
“Could be 90, could be 30, could rain, could be sunny, could snow — all on the same day.” — Mary Jo Kerber
“Trees are changing colors, it’s beautiful, and light breezes on these warm days cool the nights. And there’s a smell to it — it’s hard to describe, but just you just know it’s fall and it just smells good and just gives you a good feeling inside.” — Bob Baker
“Uh, last time I checked, Chicago only has three seasons throughout the year: winter summer and construction.” — Steve Price
