Change of seasons is underrated. After 3 months I am always ready for the next one, which is why I couldn't live in the South (especially southwest) where the seasons are basically hot and hotter.


P.S. Winter in MN is only 3 months (at least to Minnesotans).

LOL apparently "winter" is subjective - or maybe you mean technically it's only three months long (on paper, by the stars, whatever), but to some people, myself included, when it's 50 degrees outside it feels like winter and may as well be winter!

Winter is coming . My kids were back on the ice for hockey last night.

Meanwhile I was dying of heat in the lobby. I wanted to go belly-slide across the ice.

No I mean it's 100% only three months.... November is still Fall and March is typically the beginning of Spring. Sure both months might have snow, but it almost never sticks around for longer than 1 day.

That's not Winter... when your average high is < 32 degrees, then you have winter.

Like I said, it's subjective. To me, if it's snowing it's winter. Heck, if it's below 50 degrees it's winter.

I agree with you, Kathryn. I spent some time in southern Michigan. March was NOT spring. There wasn't a leaf or bud anywhere for the entire month and the ponds were still frozen. In fact, it was still gray, leafless, and SNOWING on the first of April. I considered the whole month to be winter! Maybe Minnesota is significantly different, but I doubt it.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again...if in only three months you are so tired of each season that you can't wait for the next one, then having "four seasons" is definitely overrated. I never get tired of clear, sunny, breezy days in the 60s and 70s. A little rain now and then is nice too.

Where do you get that?

Iím with you 100%. I spent my college years in southern Michigan and your assessment is spot on, in fact much of April is no treat either.

I too can never get tired of our weather in Southern California. If I do, I drive 2 hours and get my four season fix. Nothing like surfing in the morning, and skiing in the afternoon.

If that's your definition of winter then it doesn't apply to Minnesota. Snow sticks around longer than 1 day in March and November.
