Ditto, except I've gone 55K miles on mine and it's never snowed while I was at work (though I have ridden it through snow!).

Also I think my temperature range has been more like 30F to 112F. But still. Like you, I've had a bad starter headlight switch (which mysteriously fixed itself) as my only non-tire-related mechanical issue.
