Kerri: I ♥ 4 Seasons

Too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry. Those words aren't a paraphrasing of the Goldilocks porridge tale, they're one of our favorite pastimes here in North Idaho. We're fortunate to have four very distinct seasons, unlike my husband's homeland of North Dakota where it's either really cold or really hot, and weather can routinely be a matter of life or death. Here we have mostly weather of convenience or inconvenience depending upon your work schedule and outdoor recreation preferences. If you don't know what fresh and pow refer to, odds are you're not a skier or snowmobiler. As we slide, or slip, into spring, there's much complaining about the weather being too cold, too snowy, too slushy and too wet. And we haven't even arrived at the snow-melt flood warnings. It's no secret that I love summer and sun and anything that takes place in and on and around the wonderful North Idaho waterways. But I also love snow/Kerri Thoreson, Coeur d'Alene Press, Main Street. More here.

Question: I like the four seasons, too -- but wish that winter didn't last from November until June. You?
