Just curious to know with all the hot and dry of the summer and the snow and cold of the winter which season can you handle the best.Myself i prefer winter.I love plowing snow and doing restores in the shop [spring and fall don't count in this]

If I have to pick one it will be summer because you can always find a way to cool off. It isn't always possible to get warm depending on the situation in the winter.

But springsummer is still my favorite.

Summer for me. Longer warmer days and no need to drive on icy roads!

Personally I can cope with a hot summer better than a cold winter since up here when the temps get up to 95* or so mid afternoon it will still be 60 to 70* in the morning or evening. In the winter when the days are 10 to 20* the nights are -10 to 0.

My dad always like winters best because he figured he could put enough clothes on to stay warm but he could not take enough off to stay cool.

I like summer time alot better than winter. One reason would be that for my time zone, summer days are alot longer than winter days as far as light hours, so you can get alot more done outside. Also, I would rather be in the hot weather with a cold glass of water in the summer than freezing outside in the winter.

Summer for me as well. I like riding my Motorcycle in warmer temps and also working out side with just a T-Shirt and jeans. In the winter I have to wear a jacket and long sleeve T-shirt or sweat shirt and when riding depending on how cold it is either leathers or heated gear and all that clothing is just cumbersome.

No difference here. I have a heated and air conditioned shop. Now the real problem is I have so many projects going on the shop is too full and its hard to find the workbench at times.

I don't handle either extreme very well anymore, but would probably take Summer as first choice! ~~ Lowell

I was born, and raised here in deep south Texas, and I do just fine in the extreme heat, I don't like it, but I do ok in it. Anything below 50, and I am miserable. It has only snowed once down here in the last 110 years. Sweating Good, Shivering BAD!!! :bigrofl:

I hate cold weather! Can't get enough clothing on to stay warm. Give me the heat! If it's too warm, I'll stay close to the AC.

The cold affects me less than it used too, but I still prefer summer over winter. The only upside to winter is I get more seat time.
No one fights me to go run the snowblower...
