Winter, the verb

People winter in Florida, as in the verb.

As for the noun, winter in Florida probably doesn't exist.

Calendar chart showing days
when the high temperature did not exceed
70, 60 and 50 degrees.

At least as a season:

Winter in Florida is measured in a handful of days scattered here and there across a four to five month span from November to March.

That is, assuming you count a day in that doesn't break above 70° F as winter-worthy.

If you're from Up North, you probably don't.

But if you lived through a Florida summer, you definitely do!
