My sister who is a teacher, had a full week off for snow days last year here in the DFW metroplex. We do get snow and ice here,it just comes once in a while during the winter months. I will take that any ay over the frigid northeast weather. We moved here from Connecticut and do not miss it....

I miss winter with snow too for about 5 seconds then wake up smiling to not have to shovel

The only time I long for snow is when it's 107 here.

To make up for lack of snow we have car wrecks when it rains. It's the circle of life.

So this thread popped up on the "Similar Threads" to something else I must have been reading...

Being a native Minnesotan who hasn't been a fan of snow and winter for a long time, and now pretty much hates it, I say I would love boring warmth year-round. I've even been in countries of hot and humid as the norm and was fine.

Minnesota (at least Minneapolis area) has had a relatively warm winter with fairly little snow and few of what we consider bitter cold days, and I'm still done with it. Bring the heat! (and, while we don't get quite as much 100-110F days I hear you Texans get, we do get some heat in the summer. It's not impossible to get 90-100F in July and August).

I agree. Except for the climate, I love Dallas and wish I could move it a couple hundred miles north. A few weeks of snow in the winter would be nice. Instead, you just hope for snow that rarely comes. The springs are mostly pleasant, but it's hard not to think about that dreadful oncoming summer. The summers... well I don't think it needs to be said. Autumn is perhaps the best season - you just made it out of the worst temperatures imaginable and have most of a year of nice weather to look forward to.

But there are plenty of strange ones here who would rather it be summer all year than ever drop below 70.

Dallasites like snow for a week or two but we are fully capable of living without any for rest of the year.

I've always found it strange when I encounter a Texan saying how much he wished it were freezing. Why don't they just move to Alaska? Why move to a state that they know is hot, then wish it were cold? All these people who keep their homes at 60 F in the Texas Summer just don't make sense to me.

Then we'd all be living in Oklahoma, and no one wants THAT!
