Yeah, I live in a nice area. Summer temperatures, while I complain, are nothing compared to say, Texas or Florida. Spring, it usually rains approximately a third of the time, unless it's El Nino year, which just screws everything up. I like the rain (just not being out in it), and occasionally thunder and lightning. I love the way it smells just before it rains. Fall is NICE, and indeed my favorite season. The temperature is just right, and it doesn't rain much, and the leaves are turning colors. Winter... well, it can be nasty. We don't get much snow, but when we do, it's something to behold. I think it gets d**n cold, but I've seen people migrate south to our area when winter hits. And, for some reason (I personally blame Magician Murphey), it doesn't matter when it happens, but when the local ski resort shuts down for its annual two-week maintence run is when we get the blizzards.
