    For me its time for spring when the snows are consistently heavy, and it just takes too long to get everything done. If its going to be 31 and snowing, just give me the extra few degrees to change it all over to rain so i can sleep in.:D

    If is going to be cold then it needs to be snowing but since it is cold and no snow it needs to warm up now so I can open up the ice cream shop.

    Give me 60 and cloudy. Good weather to work every day in.

    I don't mind snow, but you can only work 8 hours.

    Summertime I can work 15-18 hour days, 7 days / week if I want.

    Since I only do this for the money, cuz it was only fun for the first twenty years. I'd be happy if the nighttime lows stayed below freezing until at least Easter. I like when i gotta hurry up and melt it before the sun does. I don't really care for 40-50 degree temps while raining all spring, because then I have to work outside in the chit. Dress in layers, break a sweat, take layers off, get chilled, put layers back on...start it all over the next day w/ the same wet muddy boots I took off the night before, or put on the other pair that shrank.
    Yea, I don't mind riding it out...the longer the better, than it can turn 75+...Oh yea, I live in NE Ohio.

    I usually want winter to last until april but this year I am ready for summer early. I do enjoy warm days in march though to head out on the late season ice and do some ice fishing in a T shirt.

    Never. Winter is my favorite season. I love plowing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and other Winter activities.
