Yeah, the winters can be really bad here. It's not so much the snow as it is the wind chill. When it's 2 degrees and feels like it's like, -20, it's not so fun!
Spring is lovely here, it seems to be short lived, depending on when it wants to stop snowing and when summer decides to kick in. I know it has snowed 3-4 inches in late March/early April before.
I'm really not a summer person. We have sticky, humid, mosquito-infested summers here. There can be a day where it's 80 degrees and feel like it's over 90 because of the dew point and humidity. I've spent the summer in southern California and I can say I prefer the heat there than here.
I absolutely love the fall here. It's beautiful, comfortable, and a very nice time of year to take a walk around one of our many lakes!
