Maybe the people that say they love 4 seasons aren't booking trips to Arizona? Maybe those are the ones that like hot weather?

Those must be the people who aren't loving the 4 seasons that much

You won't see me in Florida or Arizona in winter. I am usually seeking out places to enjoy snowmobiling, ice skating or just enjoying the winter weather.

I'm fine with four seasons - in fact, I prefer four seasons. I just don't want six months of cold. I prefer seasons evenly spaced out but since life hasn't worked out for me to live in Virginia, I'd rather have six months of heat rather than six months of cold so I live in Texas, which thankfully is my second most favorite state (Virginia being my first).

This year's spring has been insane in Minnesota.
March was average. Nothing crazy. A few snow storms, some rain, a good thaw. We had one lovely day in the low 50s. No bitter cold anymore like in February. Typical March.

April was record breaking though, tons of snow. 15 inches! It was a record breaker which broke the 1983 record for April snow. But by the last third of the month it was gone. Warm spring weather finally kicked in and it got so warm we had our first 80s on April 30th.

May has been a-May-zing! So far much above average. Its been warm to hot. A bit of rain, a lot of sun. Things were late to bloom but now we're reaping the benefits finally. Today is 86 degrees and I'm in nothing but swim trunks and a baseball cap, about to enjoy a frozen daiquiri

I love winter but when it does drag, you appreciate the spring and summer even more. I just love having seasons and considering this year is about the worst it can get for April... I think its gonna be all right. If I can handle this, then I'm all set!

Spring was late to arrive but I’m enjoying it while it’s here. I’m sitting in my hammock outside right now at 11pm. Pleasant 65 degrees in the air and my beer is about 34 degrees.

My favorite season is when the seasons are changing. I would hate to not have that. I get most bummed at the peak of summer.

Denver weather has been described not as having 4 seasons, but as a constant battle between summer and winter. The changes are awesome.

I have lived in places with seasons and without. I think overall I prefer a mild/warm climate without seasonal changes but there is no feeling in the world that can describe the first warm/sunny days after a long, cold winter. The energy needs to be experienced to believed. Also, I like how the seasons have their own personalties. Winter is cozy, indoors, and catch up with family. Spring is rebirth. Summer is frantic, outdoors, friends. Fall is almost melancholic, wistful, and reflective.

If I were to pick somewhere with 4 seasons it would be NYC-Washington DC, true even seasons. You get those snowy, cold, bitter days. Long, pleasant falls, and more pronounced springs. By the time you get into the upper-midwest, the winters are too long, and the springs too short.

That but also the first cold front in the fall after 100 days with the HI above 90. Denver has pretty true seasons as well.

I never lived in Denver just went a couple times to ski. Winters tend to be very sunny and warm (for winter) with 40s and even 50s being the norm as I remember it. Mornings are obviously a lot colder. I'd imagine that even if it gets hot in the summer during the hottest part of the day it cools off nicely by nighttime.
