I prefer milder winters. Winter temps in the 70s is the ideal winter temp for me!

This winter has been brutal. A horrible arctic front that lasted almost two weeks and then almost a foot of snow! Luckily, the warm winter day CT had yesterday (plus all of the rain!) melted a lot of the snow away! (Now it seems it's just snowbanks left!)

I'm looking forward to the end of April when it will be warm again!
I'd take the snow and cold with bright sunshine over the chilly, drizzly and overcast winter weather here any day.

The winters in the Atlanta area aren’t bad, if you like a bit of variety. It gets chilly sometimes, recently in the low teens at night. Typically, the days reach the mid 50’s and nights dip down to around freezing. Occasionally it will warm up into the upper 60’s, but I don’t like long spells of that because it throws all of the trees and flowers out of kilter.

It’s a bit humid. The cool, misty “wedge” weather is an acquired taste. It’s ideal for hiking in the woods where everything seems more mysterious and beautiful.

I love having 4 seasons and I love winter! I don't enjoy bitter cold but in the 30s with snow makes me happy! I couldn't imagine living where it's warm/hot all year round especially at Christmas time!

I don't know if I could deal with the upheaval of my life every year that is required to be a snowbird, but if I could then that would be the best solution, and I see why so many people live that lifestyle.
What about California year round? There are places that are milder than the Northeast in the summer and of course CA is really mild in the winter. During this past arctic outbreak it's been warmer in CA than even South Florida.

I don’t mind cold but not too cold.

2c down to about -6C

Without being windy, any wind can make it feel very unpleasant.

Vancouver is almost always in that temp range over winter
