    What is this thing about "Construction" being a season in America?

    Roads are shit, mostly due to what we use here for road construction and general overuse due to no public transportation infrastructure. Chains on tires also fuck up roads big time.

    Basically when its not frigid cold, snowing, flooding, or thunderstorms all road construction/repairs are done. So in areas with a prolonged winter all the road work is done in the 3-4 months of tolerable outdoor conditions. Basically if they aren't plowing they're patching.

    They have a limited amount of time for any road construction, and between the freeze/thaw and earthquakes the roads all need it every few years. So yeah, lots of it during the summer (and a bit of spring/fall, depending on conditions).

    I cant imagine living in a place without all 4. Seasons are so refreshing. In Maryland, we can get all 4 in the same day lol.

    I'd agree with that. Plus like 2 weeks of spring.

    Most of Texas has the normal 4 seasons.

    Only the most Southern areas like Kingsville and Brownsville don't but Kingsville is like the Serengeti and Brownsville is like a tropical rain forest so they have a dry and wet season.

    Texas is just so large we have every type of environment.

    Honestly... I am fucking tired of 4 seasons. I live in the northeast, we get a pretty balanced 4 seasons months-wise.

    What makes it so bad is the pollen outbreak, I live in "The Garden State." They don't call it that for no reason. So. Much. Pollen. Get like 1/4" of pollen on my car each morning, it fucks up peoples allergies so bad.

    The snow is really bad here too because we don't have room to push snow away into. If you go to places like Rochester, NY... they have so much room to throw snow away that you barely feel affected by snow. But here in NJ?... If it snows so much as 3", people drive so bad. I don't get it. Invest in AWD/4x4 if you live up in 4 seasons, you dum-dums.

    Everything is 60 years old and the 800 billion that Obama got to rebuild everything was squandered by his administration on stupid side projects that had nothing to do with construction.

    By seasons, I mean what most people think of. Snow in winter, cool weather with lots of colorful leaves in the fall, etc.

    We have 4 seasons in NC... although it feels like Summer is starting to cannibalize Spring and Fall. It's 87F today.

    After living in Hawaii, I enjoyed not having all 4 seasons.

    Everybody gets four seasons. They just differ less from each other. This thread is dumb.

    Lived in North Texas, we'd get snow twice or three times every year, like 2-4 inches, always melted by the next day though. Kind of like summer here in Connecticut, it only lasts for a month max, and even then is pretty mild. Everywhere gets 4 seasons, maybe not Hawaii, but even then there's snow depending on elevation.

    I have lived in it my whole life and I hate it. Winter sucks after 18. Still have to go to work, chip ice off your windshield etc. Fall and spring it's not hot enough for water activities. Summer is great on days off sucks on work days. All my wish list locations with my company are warm dry non deep blue states... but good luck, everyone wants them.

    Pretty much only south Florida and South California dont have distinct seasons, even in Georgia we got a dusting of snow each year.

    In San Diego we get May Gray, June Gloom, No Sky July, and sun the rest of the year. With a few exceptions such as this year. We practically did not see the sun in February and March of this year with weeks of rain on end.

    We get a lot of rich people from Arizona buying houses in San Diego. During the summer, they would spend their time in San Diego. I guess to them San Diego summer is like Arizona winter or something to that effect.

    Calfornia is too large and diverse to sum up in one statement.

    Some places get all 4 some get 2.

    Because I am on the edge of a desert we joke that fall and spring last about 2 weeks.
    Summer can be very hot >110 degrees.
    Winter can be cold or you know 70.
