Some Summer Days are Cold and Some Winter Days are Warm

Therefore it is wrong to typify summer as warm or winter as cold.

This is obviously a fallacy, and I think it would be a good example of a common fallacy. (How often do you find yourself saying, or just thinking: "But I never said or even implied that ALL of X were Y...")

But what to call it? The warm winter's day objection? The cold summer day gambit? The summer rain reply?
