Yeah there's winters, all seasons, then summers. No one here's gonna rip someone a new one for using all seasons in the winter (though some may scoff and laugh and ridicule). Main point of contention if danger level of using summers in winter, and exactly how much snow one would need to see per year to justify winters.
