I think in most zombie stories the cold slows them.

The show has some holes in how the zombies function. For example thy can smell the living & fresh blood, well detecting a scent may be an involuntary function but identifying it is a cognitive function which part of the brain is supposed to be dead. Also in the first season they picked up rocks to break into the department store after the scavenging party but now they can't. Also no maggots, in the heat of a GA summer all the older dead would have rotted completely away and been devoured by maggots so that only the recently deceased would still be around. In northern climates the seasons might actually prolong zombie existence.
As a metaphor the zombies represent people who lack the flexability & drive to function outside the context of modern society and all it's conveniences. The survivors represent people with the inherent flexibility to adapt & become productive in a new paradigm.
But in a real crisis the key to long term survival is society, which is the message of the show this past season. My complaint is that the douche bag governor is the only person who saw that truth & put some effort into achieving it.

@pops agreed.

The world has changed, the walkers are getting "smarter" I think their brains kind of function like simplistic animal brains, with the ability to learn by association that for example; a gunshot = a possible source of food, as does a car engine, loud talking, & ... The crashing noise that breaking a window would make.

Maybe whatever brought the dead to life has some kind of preserving agent to it? Causing the walkers to decay slower & retain some (but not all) of their brain function? They can "learn, because when Michonne finds the Gov's daughter & before she realizes that she is a walker, she talks soothingly to her & tells her that its ok & not to worry, & it seemed (to me) that she understood on some level what was being said to her ... It wasn't until she took the cover off did she become hostile ... So maybe walkers have some capabilities of learning.

I started re-reading the comics last night. I hope they don't skip the winter in season 4. Zombies freezin' and things of that nature.

It's Georgia, except for that part up country around Atlanta, it doesn't really freeze very often.

Never been, but there is snow/freezing weather and frozen zombies in the comics. The comic takes place near Atlanta and they end up moving more north I believe.

It happens, some frost and some light snow. But some years it never freezes, and only once in a great while will you get a real snow of six inches or more. A yooper would sunbathe in January in north GA.
