What does WINTER mean?

Hi Peeps,

I have been extremely busy at the moment and haven't had a chance to get a page completed for this great challenge so I thought I would get you all thinking.........

What does winter mean to you?

For Miss Annette, Mrs B and Super Mum Kim in Orange I know winter is freezing for them and it snows

For me up here in supposed sunny QLD we get frosts and horrendous chilling winds. I found some information on trusty ole google about weather in Toowoomba

Toowoomba has a temperate climate with warm summers and cool winters and it enjoys four distinct seasons.Compared to most of Queensland, the town is cooler, mainly because of its high elevation.
Daily maximum temperatures in Toowoomba average 27 °C (81 °F) in summer and 16 °C (61 °F) in winter.According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the highest temperature ever recorded in Toowoomba was 39.3 °C (102.7 °F), while the lowest was −4.4 °C (24.1 °F). Winter temperatures seldom go below freezing; however in a situation unique among Queensland cities, snow has been reported on the higher parts of the city on rare occasions. Light frost will be experienced several nights each winter in the city centre, more often in the western suburbs.

Looks beautiful but let me tell you - you don't want to step outside - the locals have not named the town "POOWOOMBA" for no reason.
And as for Julene - well sadly enough I have no idea where she lives or what it is like in winter ( That makes me a bad friend hey?)
So where do you live? And what does winter mean to you?
All I can say is " Thank heaven's for spring:)"
