What's winter like where you live? Here in Melbourne, I find it wonderful: cool crisp air, interspersed sun and rain, the spicy smell of wood-smoke in the evening.

hello fellow Melbournian!
I live in Copenhagen, Denmark. Here it feels like winter is no longer winter. The words from my childhood winter songs no longer bare resemblance with reality. Gone is the snow, the snowman, snow fight, ice skating etc.
I live in the south so winter just feels like fall 2.0 with very little difference
In the North East UK it's just wet and miserable. If we're lucky we get nice cold crisp days but usually just icy rain. Occasional snow.
I've always wondered about snow in the UK. We basically don't get snow here at sea level, so I'm curious about why, for example, Sapporo gets so much snow despite being at roughly the same latitude as Hobart. My understanding is that the oceans surrounding Australia moderate the temperature of cold air coming from the south -- all the bordering land is to the north, and therefore warmer.
