It's winter right now, and the weather depends on your location.
Some like it cold and snowy, other likes it plain cold, while other likes warm, or mild to rainy winters. Winter is our coldest season, and January is usually the coldest month.

What winter weather do you prefer?

I have to go with DinsdalePirahna on this one. Cold around Christmas then I want it back into the 80s.

I like this too, basically a week or a few weeks of winter weather then warm and sunny.

I like cold weather but do not enjoy scraping the windshield, walking or driving on ice, especially in the dark. Now that I'm retired I don't have to worry about that at 6:00A - 7:00A.

If it was up to me it would be 30 - 65 all year long with Winters in the 30 - 40range, Spring and Fall in the 50s and summer around 65.

I'd like this too, except I'd want cold & snowy from 12/20 to 1/2, it'd get me in the Christmas mood a little earlier (I've never experienced a White Christmas too). I'd take 80's/90's/100's for the rest of the year.

My weather preference is hot hot hot, I voted for "Mild to Warm".

I like cold and snow as long as there's no ice. My wheelchair tends to get stuck in the snow though so I guess the best kind of cold for me would be cold and dry. Although maybe still some snow if I don't have to go out.

Bitter cold, well below zero temperatures, and copious amounts of snow. -20 to -50 temps the norm. Think Fairbanks, Alaska.
