Two days in winter, one is 2 C and constant, heavy rain with wind. The other is minus 2 and heavy snow, with wind. Not much difference in temps, but a whole lot difference in how the weather is.

I, of course, would much rather have the snowy day, as I can be outside enjoying it, doing things in it, etc - whereas the rainy day, it's great to be inside curled up with a book or something, but forget about outdoor activities, it's just too wet. And of course snow is my fave kind of weather anyhow.

What do you guys prefer?

RAIN NO CONTEST!!!!! Snow with wind is my worst weather ever. I'd gladly take the heavy rain wind. Because I don't like snow. But my ideal weather is 69 in January.

I love rainy 2C days, those are my favourite kind of days.
I don't like the snow, it bothers daily life too much.

I'd rather have the snowy and windy day, you can go outside without getting clammy soaking wet clothes.

Snowy, not just because I like snow, but because there is nothing I hate more than a cold rain. It just makes me so mad that it's so close to snow and its not.

Cold rain sucks, unless I'm inside.

The difference in temperature is small in this example, and the snow won't make me wet so I'll vote for that. I'd still hate it because of the icyness and slippryness though.
