Proper midwest season ranking:

Summer - you can do everything
Spring - leaving winter
Fall - still get some summer but here comes winter
Winter - it's like being in a perpetual covid lockdown

Yeah...Spring for me just has so much optimism associated with it.  We're almost allowed to go outside again!

Pound for pound, weather-wise, fall is better than spring, but fall has a winter-dread effect.  Hope>Dread.

spring and fall are a toss up for me...practically the exact same season. I guess if there's one thing that sucks about fall its the looming threat of a tornado OH WAIT NO THATS SPRING BC SPRING IS A COMPLETE CRAP SEASON YOU BARBARIANS

upper midwest spring is way worse than a KC spring (also way worse than an upper midwest fall)

Sometimes the crappy cold snaps in spring are a good excuse to cancel stuff and just be a lazy sob

Fall - Perfect weather/football/holiday season. The only downside is the days are getting shorter.

Summer - The 95+ days with humidity that smacks you in the face suck but there are not THAT many of them.

Spring - Nothing better than the first string of 70+ degree days but then it's 45 and cloudy for another month.

Winter - February is easily the worst month.

Summer has July and August. It's worst by default unless you live somewhere where the heat never gets above 90.

I'll add the best season of all of these is Michigan Summer. It's warm enough to go outside and do water stuff and stay outside at night, but you could almost get by without AC. If you're by a lake it's just the best. Plus you just survived a six month wither which makes it all that much sweeter.

I'm sure they suck for some but I don't remember them being much of an issue. :dunno:

I've never been bothered by bugs and I'm like a mosquito buffet, they bite the crap out of me.

One thing about living in the midwest is people are always stunned there are cold days in April.
"It's April! I thought we were done with this stuff!"

It's like this every year.

The cold days in April aren't even that cold, though. People just enjoy not being happy.

True but this march had to be one of the coldest on record. April isn't starting much better

Western KS is a completely different story weatherwise than Eastern KS.  Back in '75 an elderly couple froze to death on I-70 around the Colby area from an April 23rd blizzard.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.
