So it's 15.2 celsius (59 fahrenheit for those of you who don't know the metric system, as a side note you should learn it)  INSIDE here, don't even want to think what it's like outside (probably not that cold, no idea why they aren't heating this place at all).

It's about 12 degrees in my flat, old building. And the heating sucks!

I hate winter, it's already dark when I go to and leave work and I generally get very moody and depressed. Alleviated slightly by Christmas, but terrible come jan

What? All of you are crazy.  Winter is the very best season.  I've been mostly miserable since moving to Atlanta, where it gets down to maybe 40 F minimum (5 C, or so) and everybody starts breaking out the huge jackets/hats/gloves etc.  It's absurd. 

I want to be able to feel the coldness in my bones when i go outside.

I don't like super cold, but I love snow. I wish it could snow in warm weather.

Yeah, this is spot on with how I feel. Cold is terrible unless it brings snow, and then it's all worth it.

In my part of the US it was pretty warm until a few days ago, when the temp dropped something like thirty or forty degrees. I didn't check the weather in the morning and was stuck in a t-shirt all day. :(

I am so much more comfortable in really cold than really hot weather. You can always put on another layer. You can only be so naked.

You guys have it all wrong. Summer ≥ Spring > Fall >> Winter. If I can't walk outside in shorts and a t-shirt, something is wrong.

I agree with you on the general principle (especially sleeping is very painful when it's really hot, one might even say high temperatures make me insomniac), at the moment I have 4 pairs of socks on (3 woollen one normal) and my toes still feel cold.. But yeah, it's mostly my own fault. Things to do tomorrow: call the janitor and ask him to make it warmer in here.

I like the warmth of summer.

Still, winter is th time for playing boardgames with the family.... :D

WINTER, SUCKITUDE. DISCUSS.

Wait, you consider 15.2 C to be COLD?

Thats a nice mild temperature for those of us in the UK.

Still, at least I'm not somewhere really cold, with proper snow and ice and stuff in October.

This is the temperature in my living room (and bedroom). Uh how I wish it was outdoors, that'd be summer again!

We've managed to get a little bit of warmth inside now, but it was seriously down to like 10C a few days ago. And that's indoors. Outdoors it's around 0c and it's getting colder.

We had an obscenely mild winter last year. There were no serious snows, and the very few times that it dusted, it didn't stay cold long for long. While the upcoming winter may or may not be worse than usual (Midwest US, so it can get nasty), the fact that people haven't been accustomed to a real winter in 2 years is probably going to screw us up.

Winter == Summer > Fall==Spring.

Extremes or nothing, Would strictly prefer winter for the reason that you can put on more layers and still be comfortable while the same is not true in summer but when it's nice and hot you can hit the river and there is little better than swimming in a river on a hot day (on par with playing in the snow)

I'm disappointed. I wanted to see some sort of Game of Thrones reference in this thread.

Winter is SOOO much better than Summer. Sitting by the fireplace all wrapped up with your honey watching the snow fall outside... It's paradise. Completely beats spending the day at the beach in the sun and suits (or, given preference, lack thereof).

Really though, it's the one thing I hate most about living on the West Coast. I MISS the Winters in Chicago. It was hands down, far and away the best time of the year.

(The biggest caveat to these feelings is if you have to drive to work. Driving in snow and ice sucks. It's not fun, and it's not safe.)
