It's 8 months.
But seriously... we usually don't see snow until early January, freeze our ******** off until end of March/early April.. then it's all plain sailing from thereonin.
The roads are clear, the sun is out and it's beautiful.. just as long as you wrap up warm. And the summer MORE than makes up for it.
The UK had a worse winter last year than we had.
You should come for a visit.
