Every single year....cold on Thanksgiving. I absolutely love the weather here. I can plant from April and reap to Thanksgiving. We do get snow, I am at 3400', but its gone in a few days and that is enough snow for me, usually only happens once a winter, sometimes we get 2', then its gone. I love the sunny warm days thru winter, then the cold nights. Wimpy.....I DO NOT LIKE cold weather - LOL. Lots of layers of clothes make me claustrophobic. So my answer is.....with this weather where I live, I don't have to be ready and that is great.....no stress living.
