Favorite Reasons NOT to Wish Winter Away

If our favorite quotes don’t have you looking forward to winter, here are some our favorite reasons why winter can be the best season:

  • No crowds at the beach.
  • Ice cream won’t melt on the way home from the store.
  • You don’t have to mow the grass or weed the garden (in most places anyway).
  • Winter comfort food – soups, chili, hot chocolate, homemade breads. . .
  • Fires in your fireplace. There is something magical about watching a fire (don’t forget the marshmallows).
  • Cold weather is a good excuse to do nothing, without the guilt. Stay inside and catch up on good books, movies, or crafts. Especially good when temperatures really dip, and snow starts to fall.
  • Winter sports – winter is the only time you can go skiing, snowboarding, sled riding, ice skating, and more.
  • No humidity in the air (good for hair and for exercising).
  • No biting bugs.
  • Snow. There’s just something magical (until March) about the pretty white stuff that blankets the ground and trees. It’s almost like someone dusts our landscape with powdered sugar. Enjoy it — make snowmen, have a snowball fight, go sled riding, take pictures of it.

Add Some Fun To Winter Days

If winter quotes don’t cut it, here are a few fun ways to keep winter fun:

Snow Coloring
Got snow? Think color! Fill an empty spray bottle with water and a few drops of food color (enough to change to desired color). Then decorate the snow, snowman or snowbanks with bright colors.

Make Winter Family Time
Pull out the board games, shut off the screens, and pull out those craft projects you never seem to get to. Winter is bonding time.

Inside Home Improvement Projects
Winter is a good time to tackle projects like painting, wallpapering, or even doing minor things like changing a room around. These projects will keep you busy and help give you a small change of scenery.

Head Outside
Just because the temperature may be cold and the ground white, there’s no reason to lock yourself indoors. Dress in layers and appropriate clothes and head out. Sledding, skiing, snowshoeing, or just taking a walk may prove to be just the remedy for the winter doldrums. The air is crisp; there are no bugs; and the activities will give you some exercise too.

Think Spring!
Get a jump on housework by doing spring cleaning early. This will allow you to head outdoors once the warmer temperatures finally arrive.

The weather you get is the weather you got… and we’re going to have weather, whether or not.

Michigan has two seasons: winter and the 4th of July!

Ray Fox

Here in Tar Hut Indiana; We’ve noticed that nothing changes the world as much, and as quietly, as snow.

Randy Reed

Joan Peterson

Forty-six years ago come March 1st, I moved from Damariscotta, ME, to Los Angeles, CA. Not a day goes by that I don’t wish I were back in Maine again. But the difference in weather did give birth to the following comment:
Night and day we suffer at the hands of summer’s force,
That makes our hard lives tougher as we work to stay the course.
We can always wear more clothing when the weather turns to chill,
But we face attire with loathing when the nights are hot and still.
Perhaps we should remember as we pray for snow and rain,
That when we reach November we will wish for heat again.


Summer is 3 months of really bad winter.


Winter holds it’s cold breath in while expectantly waiting to exhale into Spring…


I can take a little snow, but Indiana usually gets more than a little. Worse than the snow
is to listen to the TV and hear NY and DC complain!

Mary Eaton

I live in the Pacific Northwest (WA state) in the sticks (13 miles out of town) known as “Snowden”. Given that name, however many years ago, for the obvious reason. The snow that fell in December still covers my pastures. At this point it would be nice to have it “freshened” with more white which would also be welcome for the extra spring moisture. Wildfire season gets here soon enough.

D Hernandez

In Oklahoma, Texas always sucks and Kansas blows (that cold air in from the north of course).


SC if you don’t like the weather…wait 5 mins

Michael Young

Those are truly NOT favorite quotes of Winter.


As said earlier, when the snow lays on, it’s waiting on another.

GT Mullins

In Washington DC area when the forecast is for snow no matter how small, there is a run on milk, bread, & toilet paper. abandoned cars on the roads are another issue. The DC area cannot handle snow.

Samantha Gray

I live on the extreme north shore of Long Island, NY where it is very hilly and rocky due to what the glacier left behind before it carved out Long Island Sound. Up here we say ” we get our breeze in the winter and suffer in the summer”. Because of the terrain, it’s cold, moist and windy all winter long, but the summer is stifling. Thank God for our beaches, rocky though they may be. Right now we’re “enjoying” our Feb. “breeze”.

Marybeth S.

In Georgia we say if the snow is on the ground for three days, it will snow again before winter is over and it’s always right.

Larry Montgomery

You have to take what Mother (Nature) gives you whether you like it or not.
Two things in life Mother Nature and Father Time you have to deal with like it or not.

Clyde in TSAR

1. God lets weather forecasters prove what fools we are.

2. Snow doesn’t give a soft white damn where it falls.


On the prairies, there are two seasons: winter and bugs


“We have two seasons, winter and August”

Paul Smith

In Chicago there are 2 seasons. Winter and road construction!


William T. Bell, your comment is almost identical to the one put forth by Samuel L. Clemens, when he said, “If you don’t like the weather in New England now, just wait a few minutes.”

William T. Bell

It’s probably said in many areas of the country, but, here in East TN; we say, “If you don’t like the weather, stick around five minutes, and it will change!”


“Don’t eat YELLOW Snow!!!”

J. Potter

I live in Northern NY. Where winter is winter,and the snow is a bonus!!!

Sherri Nicol

When we had a big snow, and then as it melted away, but still a few piles remained, my great grandmother used to say, “it’s laying around waiting for more.” And sure enough, in a few days we always seemed to get another snowfall.

Sherri Nicol

Colder than a well-digger’s butt!

R. Ferris

I live in KANSAS!! So, we say….in winter: Nebraska blows and Oklahoma sucks, then in summer: Oklahoma blows and Nebraska sucks, which controls our storms! Of course, this is in reference to the WIND!
