As for weather. If it's freezing cold, and snow on the ground and clear blue skies... you will get the sharpest, greatest shots ever, clear, and perfect lighting!
If you're not into shooting, looking is fine too, we usually bring lawn chairs out... BTW - We stay out late sometimes and in the winter, it gets COLD so bring extra coats!!!
Seriously!! bring coats! Gloves, warm shoes are also applicable.
Trust us, it gets COLD
