    The winter/summer clothes exchange is always fun. I get reminded of clothes I'd almost forgotten I had, and it's like seeing an old friend.

    I like both fall and spring because there are so many days that are "just right"--not too hot, not too cold, usually no ice to slip around on.

    But when cold weather sets in, it does take time to remember how that feels. I have to remember to add layers of clothes.

    I enjoy the fall colors. Reds and yellows and oranges! You just can't be too gloomy about winter coming on when all of that color is around you.

    I like fall and spring best of all because as Agate says there are days when the weather is just right....even the humidity is good MS weather. I went to my Neurologist a little over a week ago and I told him it was a good MS day for that very reason.

    I also enjoy the change in clothes. I don't think I would want to live where you wear the same type clothing all the time. I look forward to the change in the fall and winter clothing, but then I am ready to see some spring and summer things when it gets close to that time of year.

    I love the fall colors and sometime get to ride up in the mountains around the Blue Ridge Parkway and maybe have lunch in Boone, NC. But then when it is about time for spring I look forward to seeing things bloom again.

    I guess I am just not a real cold winter person and definitely not a hot summer person. Neither of the extremes help me cope with MS.

    Hi Peg, welcome back. Are you going to start an Oct. chit chat thread?

    All season changes play havoc with the MS body, but Autumn is the least problematic and I love it!


    The only thing I don't like about it is that DH and I married in the fall and he's not here on earth to enjoy it with me..

    I love Fall and Spring weather. As others have noted there are days when the weather is just right and the humidity of summer is gone. The extremes of hot or cold are more problematic in the MS department.

    The colors of Fall leaves are so beautiful as is the new green we get every Spring along with all the flowers that bloom only in the Spring. Our yongest son and family live in Tennessee, a few miles from Boone, N.C.

    I like that fall is usually not too hot or cold, unless you are at the extreme ends of the season. I like to watch the leaves change colors, then fall. I love apple cider fresh the orchard. Then there are pumpkins!

    I like going from a warm apartment to a lovely, crisp, cool and colorful outdoors.

    I do not like going from a cold apartment to a cold outdoors because the guy who said
    he would remove my AC a week ago hasn't done it.

    Grrrr and Brrrr.
