Hey I live in Southern Illinois and we have hot and cold anymore too..when I was little I tend to remember having at least fall..now it goes from one to the next.I've never lived anywhere with an extreme climate in any season. I've lived in Tennessee for the majority of my life. However, I recall four very distinct seasons around here when I was a kid, but unfortunately we really only seem to have winter and summer now.
Oh that doesn't sound fun. We had a lot of flooding this spring into late summer so we had plenty of mud for a while for this area. Thankfully the flooding has since went down but so many were left without homes.I don't think too many Mainers like mud season, which occurs every April or so here in Maine.
