    States that don't get four seasons.

    Besides the south, what are the states that don't have four distinct seasons?

    I mean Texas gets 4 seasons. Summer just lasts 7 months, Spring and Fall last about 1.5 months each, and winter gets about 2 months.

    We get 4 seasons here, though we joke and say the only two seasons we have are winter and construction. (Chicago specifically not Illinois)

    Not sure you can really consider Texas winter a real winter though, it's more like extended autumn.

    We might get snow every once in while in Houston(every decade or so). Other parts get it pretty regularly.

    To be fair, Alaska does get four seasons: Winter, breakup, construction season, Fall.

    People say we don't get a winter down south. Well I say you don't get a summer or a proper fall at that.

    Summer is upper 90s to the 100s followed by massive rainstorms. The fall is when the sun starts to recede by the air becomes thick and heavy with even more rain. A proper winter is dry 80s at lunchtime, humid 50s by dinner, repeat in random cycles until you have all the common respiratory illnesses.

    As a Texas, we do get four seasons. Sometimes in the same day.
    I'm the root of all that is evil, yeah, but you can call me cookie.

    Come live in Ohio, where like in texas, you might get all 4 seasons.....in the same day. I think we had that once already this year. Went from mid 70s and warm to freezing overnight and snow.

    Texas and New Mexico gets snow, though. New Mexico is a really good place to go skiing. Flagstaff AZ gets snow, too.

    Florida is cancer though. Like living in a sauna at all times.

    I remember that while living in Ohio, although it happens in New England to some degree, too. New England has two seasons technically: Summer, and the Vitamin D deficiency period (which takes up most of the time) with variable temperatures. Nothing makes you go more nuts than forgetting the last time you actually saw the sun. Some days even the ambient light due to cloud cover isn't enough to kick on our solar panels at all.

    Portland gets an inch or two of snow every other year, typically lows in the 30s and then highs in the 90s. I'd say my region is basically a two-season area.

    Big deal, it snowed near the end of June in Anchorage once while I was growing up. Toughen up
