Here in Florida we endure the Summer to get to the season we really love, Winter. Summers are brutally hot and humid but the Winters are for the most part great. Cooler, but not cold (at least for very long) and dry. Temps are usually in the 70's with very low humidity.

Right now I can't wait for November.

And your location is? I know it's inland, most likely near Tallinn, but you won't even reveal that.

And then the rest of the year is the same, but with some leaves (if wavehunter is correct!).

What a horrible winter. Imo, -20C and sun is much better than that. However, it's still better than heat.
BTW, typical Kharkiv winter (at least in recent years): lots of slush and quite little chance of sustained snowpack.

Here is the wavehunter guide to seasons in an oceanic climate.

Spring


Summer


Autumn


Winter - London's Hyde Park after an average December rainfall (photo taken at midday on the sunniest day of the month).

Winter vegetables! They tend to be tastier than tropical vegetables. Endlessly worrying about a hard freeze that might kill tender tropical plants...

What street do you live on in Turku? That's about the scale we're talking about here, completely meaningless when it comes to climate. Estonia is tiny.

Now when someone implies he's in the Arctic, he could be anywhere from Lofoten to Resolute and some clarification would be nice. More so when it turns out he doesn't actually live in the Arctic.

Where I live, winter means: dull weather, chilly temperatures, lot of rainy, cloudy and foggy days, some sunny days, and day lenght of around 9 hours. No doubt it's by far the worst season.

Typical winter days in Rimini, Italy:
