The one thing I dislike about winter(besides black ice) is inversion. It is when warm air and cold air meet and keeps all the bad smells and such in a vacuum. It remains cold and dry until this breaks up. The sky is grey it is gloomy out for days on end. I enjoy the fog but do not like the inversion. Do you get this where you live? Here's a better explanation of inversion:
Atmospheric inversion is when the temperature in the atmosphere inverts, making the temperature rise instead of fall in areas higher above the ground. Inversions occur most commonly in the afternoon...

Not too often here. Our rain keeps that out mostly and we had plenty of that all day. I lived near LA though years ago and inversions made for many smoggy days.
