Actually, some places on the West coast don't have (the meteorological definition of) winter, because the coastal climate mainly keep temperatures above freezing. :)

If the meteorological definition of winter is freezing then my city (Sydney) doesn't have a winter. That is certainly news to me. You must have a different definition all the way up there.

Yes, according to Wikipedia the average daily temperature in January is 1.7 degrees C, which doesn't qualify for winter (to a meteorologist, anyway) :)

Can we omit 'at' in this sentence? Like 'that' can be omitted in English.
