"March is a month of considerable frustration - it is so near spring and yet across a great deal of the country the weather is still so violent and changeable that outdoor activity seems light years away."

    Which season you like most Winter/Summer ?
  • 1ashish1ashish Posts: 22 ✭✭
    I prefer winter. I think snow is beautiful, and the cold makes me feel alive. Summer heat drains my energy and means I have to do sweaty, filthy yard work.

    I prefer summer because I'll go to in the sea in summer and watch natural magic, the air clean without pollution and look in the sky in the night you will see move stars so amazing .

    @1ashish I think the same. I live in a hot place (brazil) but I prefer the Cold. I lived 5 years in US and really did like the weather there.

    I like the wintertime in hot countries. So for example, winter in northern Thailand for me is perfect. Locals wear jackets, because for them it feels 'cold,' but it's all relative!

    I love spring, the days are longer and more brilliant, the sky is blue, there are a lot of colours in the enviroment.

    I'd prefer winter! :)

    @lourdes Nice to hear that. Where are you from?
  • EulaYoungEulaYoung Posts: 11 ✭✭

  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,439 mod
    Hmmm. I agree! :) @EulaYoung

    Summer is killing this time. There is constant 40°C for last 2 weeks.
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,439 mod
    Voting up for winter!
  • hainguyenhainguyen Posts: 31 ✭✭
    Winter!
    In the winter, we can wear a lot of clothes to keep warm, but in the summer, you still feel hot despite wearing nothing :wink

    What is the coolest temperature in your country my friend? ;)
  • hainguyenhainguyen Posts: 31 ✭✭
    In my country, the coolest temperature is -4,2 degree. But at my place, it's always higher than 0 degree, so I haven't seen snow.

    Wow! I like to experience that temperature. :)
  • hainguyenhainguyen Posts: 31 ✭✭
    How about your country, kindgnice?
  • kindgnicekindgnice LEO Motivator!!! Posts: 7,439 mod
    Roughly around 38-42 degC. @hainguyen

    karachi weather is too warm and too hot
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,539 mod
    I like winter in many hot areas of Asia, as this is when temperatures are still warm, but not too hot.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,828 mod
    The hottest day in Germany since I moved here was in 2003, it hit 40.2°C.

    The coldest day was in 2012, when it hit −30.8 °C.

    It's these extremes of temperature that are such a shock for a Brit.

    As I am a citizen in a very hot country almost for all the year..I will always choose WINTER !
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,539 mod
    I think in Colombia the main difference between summer and winter is only measured by the amount of rain. The temperature is pretty much the same all the year round.

    I prefer winter and spring but I don't like summer
  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,539 mod
    In Colombia, there is no difference between the seasons and the weather is pretty much the same throughout the year. At least this is the case in Medellin. I suspect this is the same in Ecuador which is that bit closer to the equator.

    I prefer summer, because in summer I have different options for traveling.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,868 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Of course, Winter! :)



  • mheredgemheredge Wordsmith Here and therePosts: 24,539 mod
    I prefer summer when I am in some places, and winter when I am in other places. My preference usually depends on where I am (unless I'm somewhere near the equator).
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,868 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge keeping places aside, which season is your favourite?
  • nomad81nomad81 Posts: 242 ✭✭
    I like both winter and summer. I dream of the winter when temperature is minus 5 degree and it's snowing. Summer for me should be sunny and warm.
