I have come to the conclusion that I LIKE the cold of Winter. I do NOT like driving around in snow.

We had a very mild winter here in Kansas City this year, but last year it seemed like it snowed every weekened.

Can anyone give me some areas where it is a definited 4 seasons, but the snow doesn't come down all that much?

Would a place like Des Moines, IA or Little Rock, AR fit the bill?

We get them here in Kansas City also. It's just a question of how OFTEN. I realize there is not a place where it gets cold and doesn't snow at all.

Just looking for a place where it gets cold and snows very little.

Little Rock is on the warm side and you want somewhere cold. It can get cold, but just enough to give you a taste of winter. Much milder than Kansas City. Des Moines is out of the question because they get even more snow than Kansas City.

These places might fit the bill

Washington DC
Baltimore
New York City
New Jersey
Seattle
Portland, Oregon
Eugene, Oregon
Boise, Idaho

Some of those cities get more snow than others, but none of them get very much. All of those cities have average highs in the 30s or 40s in the winter, which will give you the cold weather you're looking for. NYC, New Jersey, and Boise are good if you want snow but just not as much. The other cities are places to go if you want to (more or less) avoid snow.

The Midwest generally gets much more snow than the Plains. I would suggest:
Dallas
San Antonio
Nashville
Lexington
Louisville
Cincinnati
Raleigh
Richmond
Roanoke
Washington DC
Portland
Seattle
Boise
