I'm not a fan of winter. I think it boils down to three factors: the cold, the dark, and the snow/ice. If any one of those things were taken away, I'd be fine.
The cold: if the temperature in winter stayed in a spring or summerlike zone, I wouldn't care so much about the limited sunlight or the snow and ice on the ground making it hard to get around (I know it's impossible to have snow and ice in 15 degree Celsius weather. This is a theoretical discussion and I can bend the rules of physics however I want).
The dark: not only are the nights longer in winter, the sunlight during the day is kind of pale and wussy. If winter light could be happy and yellow and last 12 hours a day, it'd perk my mood right up and I wouldn't mind the cold and snow so much.
Snow/ice: it seems patently unfair that not only do we get coldness and darkness in winter, we also get crap all over the ground that makes it difficult or even dangerous to get around. It's like Mother Nature is kicking us while we're down. If winter could be precipitation-less, or if the snow could somehow fall only on lawns and not on sidewalks, roads, or parking lots, that would be awesome. Imagine: you're walking to the store in winter. It's 6pm and already dark out, and it's so cold you're shivering and huddled into your coat. But the ground is perfectly clear and unobstructed and you can stride quickly and confidently to your destination.
People should ask me how to run the planet. I have good ideas.
