Default Your Favorite Thing About Winter?

Is it the cooler weather you like. Maybe the snow falling. How about that gusty northern wind. I bet u enjoy that.

Do u like winter because that means that Thanksgiving and Christmas are near. Or New Year's Day?

Maybe u enjoy skating on a frozen lake.

Or enjoy shoveling snow off your driveway. Or going to work in a blizzard.

So what do u enjoy about winter? If anything!

I do enjoy a good snowfall and the approaching New Year.

I also enjoy the College Football bowl games and the playoffs in the NFL.

I love Saturday and Sunday mornings/afternoons.

I sit around in my robe, watch the snow fall while sipping a cup of coffee and watching football. It doesn't get much better than that

Starting in November it's basketball time, and I'll get the chance to cover around four to five basketball games a week. Basketball, besides track and field, is the primary sport here.

Otherwise, I'm looking forward to cold temperatures, icy roads and flu-like conditions!

My favorite thing about winter is that in March or April it ends. Other than that, I really don't like it very much. I do not care for shovelling snow, nor do I care for driving in it, although it isn't as bad as it used to be, now that I don't live on a farm.
I really don't like winter at all.

Skiing or snowboarding all day, then drinking with some cute snowbunnies!

I love snow and cold weather.

We should have a snowy winter here. The hot summer (and early fall) heated the lake up pretty good. The warmer the lake = the more snow we get.

No...just south...Youngstown area.

Not exactly in the heart of the snowbelt but we get a decent amount here off the lake. I think last year we got around 90 inches for the season.

Gotcha. You certainly get more than we do in Cincy. :thumbsup2:

I like snow, but not enough to leave near Cleveland... I think it is snowing in Cleveland right now, no? :lol:

Frosty mornings are nice, but like summer's heat, it gets to be too much. That's why I love this time of year, fall! Someone mentioned basketball, that's a big thing that gets me through it.

Oh, and no bugs to splatter your car is a plus for neat freaks like me!
