North East Ohio has only two seasons as well... winter and construction season (a.k.a. orange barrel season (freeway repairs)). With the growing overlap, it seems they are trying to get rid of winter.
I'd rather have the cold. You can always layer more clothing. If it's too hot you can only take off so much, and if you're still too warm, you can only suffer.
I love snow. In the Greater Cleveland Area, every winter people act as if they've never seen snow before. I've begun to sarcastically reassure these people that they'll get used to it after they've lived here a couple years. When they tell me they grew up here, I then ask why the hell they are freaking out. (I grew up here too.)
