I love them. Not enough snow this winter here, though. Only 4 inches and its already January. Jealous of the blizzard out on the east coast. I would love to have a big storm this season. Over here we need warmer weather for a storm because its so cold.

Today is the "warmest" day so far in our cold snap - it's about 30 degrees right now and the sun is sparkling off the heavy frost. That's about how much cold I like in January!

Actually we were down in the teens for a few nights (with highs below freezing) for about four days and yeah - that was cold enough for me. I don't mind some cold weather in January. It's cold weather in March and April that I take issue with. Enough already!

Oh, and I don't want to have to bundle up inside my house either. I don't mind snuggling down with some big woolly socks on, under an afghan by the fire, but I don't want to have to walk around in thermal underwear or a jacket just to be comfortable in the house. Outside - yeah, I'm OK with layers. Inside, not so much.

What do you keep your thermostat all winter at? We keep ours at 67. Its cool enough where we can keep some lighter layers on but warm enough you don't need a thick jacket. I don't want the house to be too warm. Nothing's more annoying then having to remove so many layers every time you go inside. And the gas bill would be insane to keep it any warmer. I don't see it as a big deal, considering in Texas we set the house even lower than this with the AC on in summer, 67 is perfectly fine.

It is unseasonably warm and we are in drought conditions. Send some of that bomb cyclone over here!

I keep it at about 69 in the winter and about 72 in the summer. That's comfortable for me and I don't have to take off and put on clothes all the time just to go in and out of the house. I mean, I don't mind a coat in the winter, or even a coat and scarf but when I lived in a much colder climate I had to have a mud room with hooks for all the gear because every time I went out I'd have to put on: coat, hat, gloves, scarf, extra socks, boots. Then in reverse coming back in except this time many items were cold, wet, and/or muddy.

Oh, and I had four kids to do the same with so to go in or out took us about 20 minutes of preparation or "unprepping."

And the dryer was down in the basement - four floors down - so there's that.

It's just not my thing.

Sorry - you'll have to get that from someone else - I'm in northeast Texas and we ain't got no stinkin' snowstorm here! Thank God. Been there, done that, bought the silk underwear and massive wool socks.

LOL you can have this blizzard!! I don't mind a nice light pretty snowfall that doesnt stick and cause car accidents/hours of shoveling, however blizzards where the state declares an emergency, and people get fined for driving on their street are not fun at all to me.

Change of seasons and real 4 seasons is the only thing that TX is missing, from my point of view. Before somebody gets offended at least within the 3 big metros of TX.
