Winter is awesome.

I love going out in the evening when it's dark and see the frosty tint everything has with that cool breeze hitting your face, I think it's amazing. :drool:

Where I'm from, the four seasons are really distinctive which is nice. I don't have anything against winter as long as the temperature is < 0°C and the snow doesn't melt right away. (Warm winters are humid and wet, so funnily they almost seem the coldest.) I like downhill skiing and also watching the starry nights in the winter. The air is so fresh.

Oh the nostalgia. :awww: I miss the times walking home from school in darkness but still feeling safe because of the light coming from the blanket of snow. Nothing like breathing in that really cool, strikingly fresh air. Also this may sound weird, but I used to really like the sound of my boots against the "sticky" snow too... :lol:

Sydney's Winter's aren't anywhere near as extreme as European Winter's, so I can't whinge about it being freezing, but still don't like it.

Depends on where in Europe you are. My country, for instance, has a sea climate, which means that usually we have very dark and wet (not snow, RAIN :mad:) winters. Not very pleasant, imho.

There's a good reason why so many folks go skiing in the Alps - gorgeous weather, the sight of all that beautiful white snow and a blue sky above with a gorgeous sun is just what you need to get yourself refuelled with energy. :D

Oh yeah definitely, it gets you straight into the spirit of things.

What England has is not winter. It's just a damp windy rainy snowless mess straight through your bones. :unsure:

I prefer fall, but I don't hate winter. I'm from New York, so I'm used to the cold and my body adapts to it. Now living in Richmond, it doesn't get brutally cold here. A lot of times it's in the 60s in December and January. We don't get a lot of snow and if we do, it's almost always in January/February, so I'm not worried about any of that.

We, european people, are very lucky to have all the FOUR SEASONS!! it's the famous temperate weather.

I don’t know why people rave about the superiority of FOUR SEASONS. I have lived places without four seasons and haven’t missed snow at all. Snow is a giant pain because of the shoveling and all the melting and the way it gets black from car exhaust.

Right now I live where there are four seasons and all I do is try to figure out how I can get out of this winter one. But, at least we have bright sunshine during the winter (not today, however) and normally snow melts quickly (not the last two winters, however)

I HATE WINTER, my hair frizzs up, my lips chaps, i get sick easily, and it makes me sleepy:fiery:

Me exactly :o

Have to get every inch of my hair pulled back into a ponytail and tucked under a turque with the hood of my coat pulled over it or it looks like shit in the 15 minutes it takes me to get to class including 12 minutes on the campus shuttle.

Also this may sound weird, but I used to really like the sound of my boots against the "sticky" snow too... :lol:

I used to have a book called The Snowy Day (http://www.amazon.com/Snowy-Day-Board-Book/dp/0670867330) where the little boy talks about his boots crunching in the snow and since my mom read it to me as a kid, I've always loved hearing the crunch crunch of the snow.

OMG you aint neva lied, that would happen to me to:worship:, i had the most similar situation to yours but except i was at the beach and it was sprinkling when it was winter, my hair went from flat as a pancake to a straight up poodle and i got the stare of "WTF happened to her hair" for 60 dam minutes:o:o:facepalm:

sometimes having black girls hair is a pain in the ass i tell you, ill never forget my winter hair memories:mad:

Don't mind it if I didn't have to drive in the snow. And with my work hours I only see the light on the weekends. That's depressing.

every season is great here in my region......there's no time of the year where you are forced to stay indoors......winters are amazing with temperatures in november, december and january ranging between 10-25 C, no snow......once it went to 6 C last year but that's about the limit......

i like all seasons but i am a fan of summers......summers are great fun, literally anything can be done in summer......there's nothing like a summer evening......

It gets very cold around here. And it it snows a lot too.

It's tough at first, because there are a lot of car accidents, and people start to get sick. But it's actually a lot of fun once you learn to enjoy winter activities. I know a lot of snowboarders and skiers who can't wait for the snow to start.

I'm personally looking forward to it.

There's a special place in hell for you winter haters. It's very cold and dark there.

No but seriously it's awesome. I love having real seasons. I could never live in a place where it's summer all year round. Then summer is no special. Winter also gives opportunity for skiing and outdoor skating. Maybe if it was only 100 years ago then yeah winter would be a bitch. But now with the electric lights, the central heating etc. Whats the problem really? I see none. The worst part is the transition to winter when it's still not cold enough for snow so you get that real shitty cold rain. So if that is your whole winter then I feel for you

Oh yeah, that's a couple bad parts of it. I've totalled a car on black ice, that's the worst part of driving in the winter. This will be my first winter in an office with windows in 18 years, so we'll see how different my attitude is this winter.

The worst part for me is just the cold. I can't breathe cold air, it hurts my nose and my lungs and if I have to do anything like even climbing a set of stairs outside, I almost have an asthma attack. Then my joints just ache, especially my hands. I know I will have to retire in a warm climate because I can't stand it now, let alone 20-40+ years from now. It was cold the other night, I came in the house, had the newspaper in my hand and my thumb froze in place and would NOT move. That really hurt and that's what happens to me in cold weather.

I DO love the snow if I can sit in my house and look out at it. I don't enjoy snow when it piles on the trees and they fall over. Or ice storms (same thing with the trees, usually they fall on power lines, power goes out). My favorite part of the snow was when my doggie (RIP) went out in it, hopping around like a puppy (even at 13 years old), sticking her entire face in it, wagging her tail. She really loved the snow.

Things like taking showers and going to bed are more enjoyable in the winter. It's getting cozy as the cold rages outside.

Because of my frame, cold weather affects me a good deal. I can be in 100 degree weather and it barely fazes me but I get chilly when its 50 or lower.

Snow is a four letter word--I don't like winter at all. I will admit that looking out at the snow on the ground and trees etc. does make a beautiful picture.
