The quiet.
Around here there are cicadas everywhere and mosquitoes in your ear. The summer heat has a sound to it that has gotten old by August. Night time is a little worse than day - insects and frogs all night long, not to mention the owls.

Winter is quiet.
That's the good part.

I live in Alaska so my definition of "colder months" is different. Most of our winter days are -10 to +10 and that is pretty doable for wearing a reasonable amount of clothing/layers and getting outside. -20 and down starts to crimp my style a bit, although at -40 and colder it becomes a bragging point and "badge of honor" to get out the door and go for a walk or look up for a chance to see the Northern Lights overhead or a Moose munching on a low hanging birch branch in my backyard.

I have felt the effects of S.A.D. (seasonal affective disorder) in previous years unless I get out of the house and do some physical and mental activities. In a way the winter is good for me in that I make sure to stay active, no drinking and no overeating also a chance to catch up on sleep after the 24 hours of daylight manic phase of summer.

The shortest day at my house in December has about 3 1/2 hrs of light. It is literally a sunrise for about an hour and a half up to a whole 2 degrees above the horizon followed by a sunset.... beautiful.

Yeah unfortunately. That's why I want to move out somewhere with more of a defined seasonal climate. If only most of my family wasn't down here in FL, I'd left a long time ago.

There are still crickets and cicadas here during winter, although much quieter - there are crickets just outside the kitchen window right now.

I like the colorful foliage and cooler days/nights when the temperatures start to drop in the fall. I also enjoy the fall colors for clothing since I hate summer colors. So stereotypical but I do also love the fall seasonal flavorings they come out with too.

I really enjoy the cloudier weather we get here from fall to mid-spring.

Winters are especially good since it snows very frequently from November on through the first couple of weeks of April--and we usually get around 10 feet of it a year

I love the way the snow looks and like the quietness of winter days. I like to be outdoors when it is winter since I don't get hot, the sun generally isn't out and I can always put on more layers to stay warm.

What do I like about cooler weather--pretty much everything.

The only things I like about warmer weather are lush greenery, rain, and being able to swim in the lake.

You feel more refreshed and energized - the hot and humid summers make it harder to get things done.

Today, in coastal GA, it was 71-73 but the humidity was 96%. Still, it was a welcomed relief.

It's the humidity that is hard to take but if it was 71-73, not so bad. The combination of a high temp plus humidity will keep you running to your shower every few hours.

Flowers, leaves changing color, and the cool, refreshing air in spring and autumn are great; don't get me wrong. The dead of winter just feels uncomfortably cold with nothing I like really like though. I'm not a big fan of snow either.
