It finally happened. It has happened every year and it will continue to happen until the Sun burns itself out. But, still every time it happens I feel a little distressed. This morning I walk out of the house to go to work and it happend, I could see my breath! In the midwest this is a sure sign that the cold of winter is on its way.

Growing up in Michigan and Chicago, I have never been a fan of the winter months. The constant bundling up to stay warn and then un-bundling because of sweat and then bundling again, it is like a bad shampoo loop (lather, rinse, repeat...)

Logically I understand the need for winter and that it will only last a few short months, But I really just want it to be summer all the time.

We are expecting mountain snows this Friday night here in Vermont.

Oh I think that snow is very beautiful and great to look at, as long as it is through a window and I'm in warmth.

I think winter has its charms. Snowball fights, cuddling up with someone and drinking hot chocolate, snowflakes falling by moonlight, etc. Until about February, then I start hating it.

One of the reasons that I hate the cold weather so much is that I like to be outside and with as few clothes as permissible by law...... ;)

Maybe there's a polar bear dip on New Year's Day at a nude beach. :)

Oh I loved it when I lived in Austin in the late 90's I think that is snowed 3 or 4 times in 7 years...... Loved it, loved it, loved it.....

the cold doesn't bother me as much as the darkness!
I i was king of the world, I would put mirrors in space and promise everyone an 18 hour day.

If I had the money I'd spend half a year in the southern hemisphere!

I have always wanted to visit Norway and Finland to see the land of the midnight sun, but it is the snow and cold weather that keeps me away.

There is a new Travelocity commercial that mentions staying in an Ice Hotel, and I think to myself, "Are you fricking kidding me!"

I could do the Ice Hotel, I remember the beds were well insulated. The idea of living in that translucent environment sounds wicked cool!

But then again they never showed you the bathroom.
