Don't you just love it though when you wake up on Christmas morning and see snow on the ground, rather than 75 degrees and sunny. Or in Autumn, when you have those stretches of 65-50 degrees, slight cloud cover, and consistent breeze every day for over a month.
I guarantee, ask people living in Florida how they like the weather their and I guarantee most of them would love some variation. Yes San Diego's weather is perfect... but only for a few weeks, because then it just gets old in my opinion.

That's kind of how I feel about cold weather/colder seasons. It's nice for a little while for the novelty of it but the cold gets old too. I like being able to visit/drive to the cold and snow rather than live in it for months at a time.

The thing about southern california that a lot of people don't realize is that it does snow there. A good storm will usually dump a 6 inched to a foot in the higher elevations in the mountains and usually less than 2 hours away from most population centers.

The view of a fresh snow on the mountains when viewed from one of the many ocean piers is incredible. Sure beats the grey winter blandness of the midwest.

That's one thing I like about winter here in San Diego. When I drive to work in Carlsbad I can see snowcapped San Bernardino Mountains and Mt San Antonio covered in snow over 100 miles away. Spring and summer are usually to hazy to see those mountains. The snow on those mountains looks so nice right now b/c of some storms we had last week. I really like the contrasting view of palm trees, ocean, and snow covered mountains.

Denver. Yeah they have some absuredly cold weather once in a while. But I love how its really only cold when its going to snow.

20 inch snow storm one day, 65F the next. That's awesome.

The big snows usually come with the warmer cold temps. When it's really cold, there's usually little snow or almost none.

I like the craziness to an extent, but I wish the snow wouldn't melt so fast.

If only that was the case, but for Christmas in the Mid-Atlantic (and for most of winter), we get blistering cold winds and every winter weather condition BUT snow! That, along with the afternoon thunderstorm laced springs, the humidity of summer that's expected in the deep south, the few WEEKS of mild and enjoyable fall-like weather, and the schizophrenic changes in temperature, the Mid-Atlantic "season pattern" isn't something I can tolerate.

That's what I'm talking about. IMO, if it isn't snowing, it might as well be between 60-80 degrees (80-100 with NO humidity would be fine as well).

I see your point but I like experiencing the snow rather than just viewing it from a distance.
