Winter is my favorite season when I am in Key Largo for christmas, or when I'm in Kansas for the 4th of July!

Absolutely! Although there has never been enough snow to satisfy me since I left Wi. (Okay, western Ks is the exception)

I love winter. Additional layers may always be acquired if it's too cold, but when it's hot as hades one may only remove so much to remain comfortable before it starts getting awkward.

Cosign with Autie's 735am. 4 more years and I'm snowbirdin' on the redneck riviera from roughly New Years to St. Patrick's Day. As my Dad always said: "When the college kids come south, it's time to go north."

“Yes, because you get out of school and I like having snowball fights.” Man I wish I was in Fourth Grade again.

Right there. That's it. The cold doesn't bother me. Slap on my goose feather stuffed codpiece and I'm all set for whatever.

i love the snow...but we don't ever get enough. Fall is the winner in my book!

Tough call. Winter has good music, but summer has homegrown tomatoes topped with fresh mozzarella and basil. Spring has lilacs and fall has that excellent leafy smell and gorgeous colors. I guess I like them all..... but I think I'd like winter just a little bit better if I had a fireplace! Mmmmmmmmmmmm.......

My ancestors immigrated south to kansas for the warm weather. They come from the land of the ice and snow where the midnight sun.......

Kansas was a temperate climate for them you wussies.

Yay Winter, bring it on! Anyone driven down Mass Street after dark? That is really beautiful. Thanks to all who put up the lights, they look great.

Nope. Too cold and too depressing. The main reason I moved to Hawaii for 8 years. I make the best of it though. From Nov. 1 to May 1 I lock myself in the house, unplug the phone, and drink myself into a stupor. It worked well last year. I cracked a bottle Nov.1, went into a blackout, and woke up April 25 lying naked in my backyard with whiskey bottles all over the place. Hundreds of 'em.

Winter is the season of my discontent. Put away are the sun dresses and shorts, and people tend to become sanguine about the dangers of velociraptors.

I like the changing of the seasons and dressing differently in each of them.

Winter blows, can't stand it. I see the big bug eyed sunglasses girl came in from Topeka. Glad I don't speak Topekanese.

I can see your point Labmonkey....Too hot to fish. I just looked at my weather forecast...80% chance of Thunderstorms tonight? What month is it again?

To answer the question, No winter is not my favorite season. It's a toss-up between Spring and Fall for me.

autie-

The thing I hate most about New Year's Day is when I realize it is the beginning of January and two of the three worst months of the year (the other being August).

The only real value winter holds, is KU basketball. Too cold to fish, everything gets all frozen, most hunting is done, can't garden outside...it pretty much sucks. After January, what is left....watch basketball and wait for the white bass fishing and morel picking.

I really like fresh ginger when making a lemur stir fry. But a good curry is nice too.
