Default Winter Weather Preferences?

Although it is not officially winter yet, my preference would be crisp, sunny and frosty days. Hope there are no prolonged snow events - or weeks of Atlantic driven mild, windy and wet!

See edit!

I am completely with you. I have a stash of hand warmers in the car so I am all ready.

I'm with you too Dora. Here at Llangrannog (west Wales) we had months of very dull and wet weather through winter, relatively mild, then just 3 or 4 frosts in March.

Much prefer to have it cold and crisp but with sunny blue skies.

I wish we had one of those 'crisp, sunny and frosty days ' today as opposed to the very wet, windy and mild day we have today!

Bring on the 'crisp, sunny and frosty days'!

Best days out Cold crisp white frosted grass crunching under foot as you walk along a river side with the early morning mist spirreling up from the river like ghost of the past.D

Normally I'd be right in there agreeing with you, but after this morning's awful greyness and torrential rain, I'd be happy if each winter day delivered what we had this afternoon - 14 degrees and sunshine warm enough to sunbathe. Grrrrreat!!

I always find the seasons fascinating and all with something in mind, the autumn is preparing every thing for the hard weather to come, like sap been drawn back into the tree roots, the leaves dropping the birds and animals, getting in winter stores, and like the we homo sapiens get our winter things I, and for me a fresh cold crisp day takes a lot of beating, but so is a spring morning when you can just feel the earth warming up, to start the cycle all over.

Seems the majority favour cold, sunny and frosty. As far as I can see, we'll just have put up with generally murky weather for the next week or so. I really dislike the low light levels that type of weather produces at this time of year.

14C would keep heating bills down, though.
