Tale of the Tape-Winter vs. Summer

 

 

 

When it comes to weather, people prefer it one of two ways, warm or cold, there is no in-between (you’re lying to yourself if you think otherwise). I myself like it cold winter weather, but is it really better when it comes down to it? Which season really has the edge? We examine it in this edition of Tale of the Tape!
