Winter. Heat doesn't have the same impact as a heavy, wet snow.

I think summer is worse. Sure shoveling snow might be annoying, but the heat literally makes me physically ill.

If you have plenty of indoor projects to carry you through the winter, enjoy baking/cooking, ��
reading a few good books, �� watching some movies during daylight savings time, then winter IMO is more tolerable, than not being able to go outside because the air is so hot its suffocating, your privates are burnt from sweating, and it continues by toweling off from the shower you just took to cool down... When its so hot you think the paint is about to melt off the side of your house. You can't escape what feels like a Twilight Zone episode of the world ending in unstoppable temps..
There is nowhere to run or hide.. when it feels hot inside even with the air conditioner running full blast.. well

I think its easier to control the comfort of winter with careful planning,
rather than living in relentless heat. ��
