1.) The temperatures are perfect for me. There is often a light breeze. Unlike spring, the risk of residual, dirty slush is minimal.
2.) Candy is all over (for Halloween) and soon will be on clearance (Nov 1!)
3.) Oktoberfest beers are out. Yum. Heck, Oktoberfest is out – my neighborhood hosts one.
4.) Crunchy leaves. Stomp, stomp.
5.) Harvest fruits and vegetables, available in u-pick and at farmers’ markets.
