Personally, I prefer spring, summer and fall.  I do like hot chocolate, hot tea and hot coffee and hot soup.

What about you???

I like winter in CA!  I can have flowers all year long  There is always something
in bloom. I don't miss the snow and icy roads. I do like Nestle's new dark hot
choc.

The gift of snow! I definitely miss the beauty that is created with a snowfall. The trees are decorated, the air is crisp, and the snow glistens when the sun comes out.

I like snow, as long as I am inside looking out at it...otherwise, not so much!  I love the influx of gardening catalogs, which I go through happily, thinking about what I can try planting in the spring.  And I love having the fireplace going in the evening with one of the cats curled up on my lap...

I like cold crisp weather, hot coffee and soups and a fire in the fireplace.  My favorite season is fall.

around here we don't get a lot of cold------------just sometimes--------------i like it when i can put my electric blanket back on the bed and be really cozy-----------although a lot of times i need to run the a/c to keep it nice and crispy inside------------------

we don't really have spring or fall here-----and we often have 90 degrees as early as march-----------this past summer-----------we had a string of 47 100+ days -------a new record----------and many  were above 110

i always have said about the weather------that i prefer winter-------because you can always layer up on clothes to keep you warm----that term must have been invented in texas-------because we have a lot of days that start out in the 30's and end up at 70

but in the summer-------you can never remove enough clothes to cool off------------

I love to look at the snow falling,staying in and by a fire,hot cocoa,the smell of good food cooking,baking bread and cakes.watching movies with my family snuggling with my dogs.Sitting in my recliner with Romeo on my left side and Juliet in my lap.Enjoying a great cup of coffee like I am right now while I'm on my computer.Having family and friends over.Going to my friends home and sitting in her front room my the fire enjoying a nice hot cup of tea with her,listening to her parrot imitate everything she says lol! and he laughs like her too.I love to see all her antiques all around us and have her tell me stories about all her treasures.She has a huge window to look out into the back yard and watch all the animals that come to find things to eat and to see all the beautiful birds that stop by to eat what she has put out for them.She knows just what to put out to attract different types of birds that I don't see in anyone elses yard including my own.It's like a winter wonderland back there and equally beautiful no matter what time of year.

Winter is for hibernating!
Bread baking in the oven, a pot of soup or chili on the stove.
Knitting in progress - soft yarns to cozy up with. That afghan will be done  -one of these days.   Pets snoozing beside you.
We need to get our fireplace repaired so we can use it - it is another of winter's pleasures.
Daydreaming with the seed catalogs.

I love spring when it finally sends up the crocuses and daffodils.  I think we appreciate them all the more when the winter has been cold and snowy.

I love to watch the birds come to the feeders.  We put out quite a few, including suet feeders which the woodpeckers love.  I do like a fresh snow as long as I don't have to drive anywhere.  As a kid we did lots of ice skating and playing in the snow.  Here in MO we don't usually have enough snow to do much with (last Feb. being the exception) and skating doesn't usually happen either.

I like snow but not feet of it just enough to make the ground white. I don't mind shoveling a few inches.
We don't have as much as we used to have when I was in school in the 50's and 60's. I lived in a
small town and they would block off a big hill beside the school house so we could go sledding at
noon and recesses.The town is who blocked of the streets going across the hill. It was threes blocks long.
The walk up wasn't bad pulling the sled either.

Not much to like about winter.   I can tolerate snow for about 5 minutes lol, then it can go away.  Shoveling two driveways everytime it snows is just too much for me now.  Winter takes it's toll when you get older and none of us is getting any younger, right?  I have to agree with Nancy, the best part of winter is when it's over.

I dislike the cold very much. (and I dislike the lack of sun)
I do like watching the birds at the birdfeeder...but they are there in the warmer months as well.

About the only good thing I can say about winter is that it does mean that Spring is around the corner.
The fact that we have gone through December and the temperature is fairly moderate (Northwest Suburbs of Chicago) I can take pleasure in the fact that is January 31 days and then we have February, a short month.  Spring is just a few months away!
I can start planning on what trees and bushes I want to plant. Spring will be here before I know it!

I'm not a great winter fan.  We are having a very mild winter so far, and really we need rain and snow in the Sierra.  It affects our water supply.  Last year we had a heavy winter, and the reservoirs were so full they had to release some water.  This year we are about 1/4 of normal (not good).  We keep hoping that a heavy snow will come to the Sierra, and that will also help the ski resorts.  So far the resorts are having to make snow, not great skiing.  Also more snow/rain means less fire danger in the mountains.  As they say "Pray for Snow".
