Winter can never start early enough for me. I consider it to be winter when highs are in the 20s and 30s if not lower. Also the low temperatures have to stay well below freezing as well. I always look forward to the lower sun angle in the winter months when I am not blinded by the intense sun and horrible heat.

All relative...I would count winter as temps below 45 for highs..sorry Dallas/Fort Worth...you dont have a winter....

Our winters do not really seem to gear up until after the first of the year lately. And then only for short times with a warm up in between. Heck, we have seen green grass last all throughout winters lately! Dunno what is up with that.

Mid-January to mid-February seems to be our coldest times and the times we see snow if we get any.

My son will be 20 on Dec. 15 and I remember the night before I went to the hospital, we had a strong storm move in, winds were howling, and actually knocked down trees all around us, I could not sleep, and then the rains hit. The next morning, it was in the 40's and we drove thru foggy conditions to the hospital. THree days later when I left the hospital, we had 4 inches of snow on the ground! Not seen snow in Dec in quite a long time.

My youngest was only 3months old in Feb. '93 when we got the major ice storm. It was a beautiful sight, but of course, power was off, people had to move in with others around here. We were lucky, only lost power for four hours, but we had relatives who lived with us for two months until their power could be restored. Not seen that in a while either.

Our winters, as in weather patterns dominated by snow, ice and/or below freezing weather with few days where snow can melt won't start before Novemeber, but I have seen it start as early as November 9th.

That same nasty mix can last as late as mid April in very bad years but is typically gone before April Fool's Day.

mid novemeber. I would say the first snow and first day the temperature doesn't reach 32 means that it is here.

That's funny. You're right~you don't have ANY winter. If it gets down to 70, you probably think a cold front has come through.
