I awoke to minus 20.2 degrees F in central Illinois. Some of my thermopane windows are so frosted I can't see thru them. To think I was fishing on the White river in a light jacket just over a month ago. Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

us too: I love winter, I don't mind snow. In fact I like a little wintery mix, it is so pretty and just a nice feeling, but when it is like what we are experiencing now: OMG. We are having our daughter and her hubby over for prime rib later today so I had to venture to the garage to get some potatoes. That was as far as I am going today. My indoor plants in the sun room need watering; I hope they don't die cause they are getting no water til, at least tomorrow..

My ideal climate would be two weeks of winter with some snow for variety, then a month of summer with the rest split 2 to 1 in fall and spring weather. Perfect climate for a golfer at least lol

Would you be in plano TX?

Just make sure you get at least 15-20 days of never getting above 50 degrees, to kill off the Brazilian Fire Ants.

In Central Texas this year, for the first time, we will make it to 15 days below 55 degrees, which should have an impact on their numbers, but won't completely kill them off.

Yeah, my mother in Wisconsin is getting some crazy weather right now. The wind chill has mostly been hovering around -30 all of last week. Looks like they'll be barely breaking single digits this week (without wind chill).

and why not? We do have very little snow most years, cold but not frigid winters, beautiful springs and falls, so what doesn't make that pretty livable. As for summers, they beat Texas by a lot.

Arkansas has perfect winters, you get just enough snow to enjoy it but it doesn't become a nuisance, you get very cold nights but it doesn't stay that way for long, and you get to move onto Spring once you're sick of winter.

4 true seasons is a big factor for many people.

I was being sarcastic. I hate Winter since I've lived in the north for almost my entire life, so hearing people say they love Winter when they live in the south is funny to me. The 2015 and 2016 Winters were by far the most perfect Winters I've ever experienced.. 40 - 70 degrees on a near daily basis in North Central Arkansas.. I was loving it.

Aside from cold Winters, this state has nearly the perfect 4 seasons anyone could want. I'm a Summer person, for obvious reasons.
