DarkEmpathy - we don't get quite the snow and rain that you do down here in leafy Surrey, but I love the autumn and winter storms there's nothing quite like walking on Brighton Beach in November, I guess that it suits my personality. I'm not a great lover of Summer my CSA happened during a summer camp whilst in the scouts and for most of the summer afterwards.
Whilst we are on the subject I'm more Gimli than a Frodo or Bilbo
To look up and not down,
To look forward and not back,
To look out and not in
