This morning we finally had to kick on the furnace and I couldn't be happier. This is the best time of year IMO. Cool weather, NCAA/NFL football, MLB playoffs, the holidays approaching, darker and/or maltier beers, comfort foods, and brewing indoors!

Agreed, Ben. Woke up this morning to a nice frost on my grass which means one wonderful thing: no more mowing. Nice, crisp day, beautiful color on the trees. Tremendous.

no mowing, and the west wind takes all the leaves out onto the street and into the field across from me. no raking!

i'm not turning the heat on till the pipes are in danger of freezing.

Yup, the color as well. The tristate area is about 2 weeks from peaking...

Went apple picking in Massachusetts last weekend. The color was unbelievable. Fall is far and away the best reason to live in New England.

Fall color here means your grass turns brown. Mine is still green. It will be 82 today.

I'm just happy it's not in the 90s every day anymore. This summer was brutal.

No furnace here yet, but I do love this time of year. I am watching football, brewing comfortably outside with pants on, and drinking beer while brewing without feeling like I am going to die....life doesn't get much better.
