Four gentle seasons, that's the stuff for me! Getting a little snow for a few days now, got down to 14 last night, which was a good reason to light a fire in the Rumford. Juniper smells wonderful in a fire. For Valentine's Day I installed a soapstone hearth, finally completing the project - great timing!
Never broke 100 last summer, mostly because July through September is monsoon season, and we often get beautiful thunderstorms in the afternoon. Spring and Fall are endless days of tee-shirt temps.
