Maybe if you're originally from Miami or Honolulu.

The "winter" of 2011-2012 wasn't a real one; that's for sure.

Are you kidding? The Twin Cities got 86" of snow in 2010-2011, which is 30" above normal, and the temperatures were cold if anything.



Nationally, most states were colder than normal:



and the upper midwest had more snow than normal:

I've been to Atlanta 3 times already, 2 during winter, and 1 during summer. So far, I like the winter in ATL; it's way better then Fort Wayne, IN which is so cold and lots of snow. Or maybe I'm living in MIA for almost 4 years and I forgot what real winter has to be; on the other hand, does "real winter" mean something like NYC or Boston? Lots of snow and super cold? If so, ATL will never have "real winter" cause its geographic location is toward the equator and the tropic of Cancer (correct me if I'm wrong)

I can take cold weather any day but snow just flat out pisses me off.

The winter of 2011 proved my point Atlanta does not have a real winter. It was in the 60's and even 70's almost every week. we got no snow either.
