I like the effects the change of the season has on vegetation, and I like snow, but overall I could do without the cold. The winters here aren't too hard; pretty easy compared to what some of you have. But I blame the cold for conking out my vintage cameras. I've had a Rolleiflex and a Widelux die in the cold. They are back in working condition now, but I still hold a grudge.
One winter I was wandering through the woods in the snow, and I realized my cable release had dropped off somewhere. I was able to back track following my tracks in the snow and find it.
