What is your favorite season?

Q: What is your favorite season?

A: My favorite season is definitely autumn.  I wish that fall lasted longer, but in the past few years it has gotten shorter and shorter. I wish global warming would shrink summer time instead!

Fall is my favorite for a couple for a couple of reasons. First, I love to see all the colored leaves. In the Pacific Northwest we have a wide variety of trees, and each type takes a different color during the autumn months. When I was a child autumn came earlier, and I have fond memories of walking to school to start a brand new school year, kicking piles of leaves as I went.

I also prefer the weather in autumn. I can’t stand hot weather at all, and in the Pacific Northwest, autumn brings the best kind of weather. The air is cool and crisp, the wind is bracing, and the sky is grey. Perfect!


Q: 一番好きな季節は?
A: 私が一番好きなのは絶対秋!秋がもっと長ければいいのにと思っているのだけれど、ここ数年は短くなってきているわ。地球温暖化で夏が短くなればいいのに!
