I love snow. Looking for good 4 season area to retire in. Ever get White Christmas? Does snow stick and last?

Well. Do they ever? Yes, every once in awhile. Always? Definitely not. Southern Indiana's snowrate is significantly lower than the northern portion of the state. Yes, a big snowstorm usually hits southern indiana every once in a while, however, they are much far and few between than Northern Indiana. Have you ever heard of lake effect? It sounds cliche, but it eally does make a different in the amount of snow a region gets.

I grew up in Bloomington, lived there for 20 years. It snows every winter, sometimes a lot, sometimes not so much. Seems like there is always a snow storm every year.

Bloomington has the ideal 4 seasons in my opinion.

Spring basically starts right in the middle of March, Summer at the end of May, Fall at the end of September, and winter at the end of December.

As for snow, its a mixed bag in Bloomington. Most winters have at least a snowstorm but a lot of time the snow is gone within a few days because Bloomington has many days in the winter where the temps are in the mid to upper 40s.

The past few years (since the beginning of '08) the city has been getting pretty hard hit with a lot of snowstorms and many, many cold days. The winters have also been lasting longer lately. So maybe this year it will be the same.
