Southern California, if I have to deal with frost on my car and a freezing night for more than 4 days, I’m done. 

My husband is from Michigan, and was floored I didn’t own snow boots or a snow scrapper for my car. I now have one for all the snow we don’t get.

-5 or so is cold, we can go a bit lower in Scotland but I love when it snows. 

My friend lives in Nevada and thinks 60 is chilly, that’s winter there, I honestly don’t think it’s ever gotten that hot here!! 

Shes coming to Scotland in a few weeks for a wedding, she’s worried she will freeze.

When it starts getting cold enough to worry about the water pipes freezing. The single digits to negative. But that’s every year and a normal winter for the most part. I love the cold weather and think 30’s-40’s degrees F is perfect. Not too cold to worry about things freezing and the heat doesn’t have to run constantly.

Northern Wisconsin here… a cold winter for me would be any temperatures in the single digits (F) or lower, but my tolerance for the colder temperatures decreases if there is any sort of wind. The philosophy in my family is that if you think the weather is too cold, you’re not dressed appropriately.

We consider a winter mild if we have any stretches where temps are above freezing. 20’s would be about average.

I live on the Gulf Coast where it rarely drops below the 30s and even then it’s rare to get into the 30s. I like cold weather though. My husband and I are going to Quebec City a few days after Christmas to experience some true cold, snowy weather! Last year it was 75 degrees on Christmas Day, and it sucked.

From southern WI- 21 degrees is mild for us. It doesn’t start getting uncomfortably cold until there is a wind chill factor and negative temps.

Las Vegas, the desert does get cold. For my spoiled west coast butt atleast. To me too cold is in the 50’s. I spent one winter in upstate NY, between Syracuse and Utica. Fuck no. That was cold! Long undies, 4-5 layers of clothing, hat, gloves, scarf, ect. Had to dig my car out of the snow almost everyday? Nope! Ran my butt back to the desert as soon as the snow thawed!

Central Florida girl here, and this is going to sound horrible, but anything below about 73 is freezing to me. My Fiance thinks it’s hilarious because he’s from Illinois originally and went to college in Alaska, so he’s had some “truly cold” winters.

I live in Maryland and our winters are usually fairly mild. The winter temps don’t often get lower than 20F and it usually only snows on January and February. I’m actually kind of ready for winter to get here. Yesterday we set a heat record for the day, it was 87F which is kind of crazy for mid-October!

5°c is cold in London. It can go to just below 0°c, and the coldest I’ve experienced here was -10°c, which is rare. It can dip that low in Edinburgh where I’m from though.
