I actually prefer cold weather, as long as it's not wet. I can't stand the rain. I've been waiting to wear boots and pants (snow pants!) and sweaters and stuff, and now it's finally here. Then again, we don't get snow down here so maybe that's a factor.

It's easier to warm up than to try to cool down.

Well, its not 110F.
Id say warm up your lemonade or put some alcohol in in.
Dont go to the beach, go to the snow
BBQ's still work in the winter,
Alcohol makes you warmer.
An excuse to clean guns.
And gives you something to look forward to.

The gardening stuff can be solved with a small greenhouse or a closet growing setup (A t5 light with a tomato or peppers growing).

Reasons to like winter:
- Clean air! No pollution is hanging around
- Easier to breathe, less pollen
- The cold is a wonderful helper in thermogenesis, or losing weight
- Can exercise longer outside
- No A/C, save on electric bills
- Outdoor activites, such as snowboarding, ice fishing
- Winter plants, like kale, chard, and blueberries

Reasons to hate winter
- All the holidays :/ I hate December

Reasons to like:

No flies
No mosquitoes
An abundance of fresh chard in the garden, and no bugs to eat holes in it.
Hunting boletes and chanterelles on a sunny but crisp winter morning after a good rain.

personally, i don't mind it.
we live in a forest. we have a 24 foot ceiling in one area of the house. spider condos abound and exist year round. bugs not so much......spiders probably have something to do with it.

  • Hot chocolate with sea salt
  • Crisp Fall days for trap shooting
  • Weather cool enough to do Appleseed and IDPA classes
  • Great top-down driving weather in the afternoons
  • Unique golden light in the late afternoon
  • Cool weather cooking: foods I don't cook in summer (meat loaf and baked potatoes, beef stew, home made chili, hand made bread)
  • kitties cuddling to keep warm
  • my favorite leather boots
  • a handsome tweed jacket to shoot in
  • catalog shopping the fall sales at midway and optics dot com
  • planning monthly shoots in weather cool enough to pick up a gun
  • wearing gloves at the range without getting funny looks
  • digging out some cuddly sweaters, hiding my bathing suits
  • dropping the kitties into piles of raked leave and watching them play
  • hassling Savannah about why we're not at the range this afternoon shooting trap.

Oh, and I hate winter because I am out of the house at oh dark thirty to catch the train to work, and I don't return home until after dark. Four hour daily commute FAIL!

OMG, sea salt with dark chocolate will change your life! For a sample, Starbucks makes a salted caramel hot chocolate. It's very close to the most fun you can have out of bed. And after four cold hours at the range? Indescribable.

The salt brings up a flavor in the chocolate that just blows my mind. But that pink salt from the Himalayas, which is saltier still, will knock your socks off. Interestingly, a teeny bid of chile makes the flavor pop too. For some reason, table salt doesn't have quite the same effect.

Sea salt is strong. The pink himalayan is on steroids. If you salt your hot chocolate, do it very lightly. Five grains at a time until you get it right. Starbucks does it well, I usually ask for a little extra.

Everyone cheer up! The days will be getting longer in six weeks!

Cold feet -- makes my Better Half scream like a girl when I inch towards him - lol. I remind him that he loves me and then he says not that much!

Dang bass are below 70 feet and don't want to bite. I pretty much imitate a popsicle on the water and am convinced that fishing in winter is tougher than shooting an outdoor match in the rain.
