“Right now, Summertime, so much to see, hear and eat outside.” — Charles W Johnson, The Vociferous Envoy

“What do they say? If you don’t like the weather here, wait a minute and it will change. We have all the seasons, sometimes all in one day!” — Carole Lago, Inside the Wrapper

“Fall – Crisp air, football and hockey seasons, marching bands, kids in school, some excellent holidays and a winding down of the summer craziness. I absolutely LOVE fall.” — Marie Larsen, There’s a Bug In My Coffee

“Winter, by far. It’s why I moved here: cold, with exactly zero chance of heat stroke.” — Nicolle Neulist, Picks & Ponderings

“The best season in Chicago is baseball, obviously.” — Ed Nickow, Not For Jews Only

“Anything but winter. I don’t mind a little snow which still get in late fall.” — Susan Schulhof, Looking for the Good

“Spring! Days get longer. Baseball begins. Watching the vines come in at Wrigley Field. Flowers bloom. First outdoor café evenings. Anticipation for the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra season which starts toward the end of spring. The boats come back to the harbors and the lake. Hope “springs” eternal! And everyone wants to sing The Lusty Month of May!” — Floyd Sullivan, Waiting4Cubs
