What do you consider four "distinct" seasons to be?

Summer (hot, dry, pleasant), Autumn (less warm/crisp), Winter (cold, snowy, windy, miserable) and Spring (warmer, rainy, sort of humid), I guess.

Where I live, it mostly seems to boil down to a year of summer and winter, with unpleasantly short intervals of fall (very summer-ish) and spring (nice, but still kind of on the winter-ish side).

Gotta love the Rockies' climate.

Oh not again!!!

"4 seasons", by Min-Chi-Cbus:

Winter: gets below freezing frequently, enough for snow/ice to stick around at least a couple of weeks. It does NOT thaw to 65+ degrees normally (if ever).
Spring: a solid 2-3 months, but not more. Temps ranging from above freezing to below "very warm" (80 degrees). Lots of rain and sometimes, sadly, snow.
Summer: Never cold. Temps at or above 75 degrees. Thunderstorms in most localles. Summer to me means WANTING to cool down.
Fall: a solid 2-3 months, but not more. Temps ranging from above freezing to below "very warm" (80 degrees). Lots of rain and sometimes, excitingly, snow.
