140 inches of snow a year

snowblowing 2 feet of snow out of my driveway often several times weekly

waking up to find that the snow plows had deposited 2 feet of ice chunks in the front of my driveway over night, that would take me an hour to snowblow out of there

freezing my a$$ of at night in my house no matter how much I had the heat on

having to take out home equity loans to pay my heating bills

slipping on ice a few times each winter and busting my butt doing it

having to warm up my car for 15 minutes each morning,while breaking ice scrapers galore trying to get a half inch of frozen sleet off my windows

having to risk fender benders for 6 months from people driving badly in the snow

having my clothing stained with ice removing salt from walking in the snow and slush downtown

getting frost bite walking outside in 5 below weather

worrying about my pipes freezing and costing me $3,000 to replace

winterizing my above ground pool for a whopping 2 months of use, if lucky

having to go in my back yard in 0 degree weather and clear ice and debris from the end of my sump pump discharge pipe so my basement didnt flood

freezing my a$$ off and risking sever bodily injury falling off of ladders putting up christmas light each winter

chopping wood in my zero degree garage for the fireplace which never worked right

watching the undercarriage of my car get slowly eaten away by ice melting industrial salt

cleaning away the filthiest looking grime, sand, and old salt off the first 5 feet of my lawn each spring

hardly being able to leave my house for 5 months out of the year

staring out my backyard window at the lovely sight of 4 tons of dog poo, and a bunch of yellow ice and snow, because the dogs couldnt walk more than 10 feet from the house due to 5 foot high backyard snow drifts..

hmmmmmm..i'd think of some more, but I think that you get the idea that I HATE WINTER IN THE NORTHEAST AND DONT MISS A FLIPPING THING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!....AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

I have kind of a love/hate with winter. It's kind of fun to go outside and feel -40° F and see white everywhere, but it gets old after 7 months. I will miss the complete lack of insects the most. That's the best. I will also miss the hugging feeling of heavy covers in bed. I have a hard time falling asleep with just a sheet on me. It's too light.

Being able to dry my washing on the radiators. In the summer it gets so hot in our flat so obviously the heating is off but I have nowhere to dry things because we live on the top floor, so no garden. Things take forever to dry.
Its a beautiful day here today and its got me looking forward to summer.

We keep the thermostat low at night, because we have a sheet, 3 blankets, a quilt, and an afghan on the bed. I can't stand having just a sheet.

I'll miss skiing
Bf has just booked a trip to Chile for "summer" skiing as he can't stand not to ski for 6 whole months

I will miss absolutely nothing about winter. I hate the cold and the snow and the ice! If I could live somewhere warm for the winter I would.

I'll miss being able to go for a walk outside in pleasant weather with my black dog any time of day, even in the afternoon or evening, and being able to go out hiking and camping. I'll miss being able to go outside without having to saturate myself in Deep-Woods Off first.

It's already been in the high 80's here in the afternoons all week - it won't be long 'til the only time we can go out is before sunrise.

Nothing....one more year and I'm moving South!!!
post #48 of 50
NOTHING!!!!!!! I really really really hate winter and everything about it. I miss leaves on the trees, I miss my car not getting coated in salt, I miss the fresh vegetables from my garden, I miss not having to put a coat on to go outside, I miss being WARM. I start getting depressed when the leaves start changing colors and I don't feel better until our nighttime lows are at least in the mid to high 60's. Seriously.

Who says you can't drink hot chocolate in the summer time? People drink hot coffee all year long, what's the difference??? I love hot chocolate and drink it year round, especially on those slightly chilly mornings (to me, anything below 80 is slightly chilly).
