Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Most of the down-ish comes from being trapped indoors with short days. Across the pond we call this cabin fever. I found strapping on a coat, getting out and doing something productive outside really helps. Until my toes get numb, then I'm happy to come back in. :-)
I use to ski and I loved winter, but I got bored with it. And all of my friends got old. (Not me, of course.)
Valentine's Day is nice, but that's one day.
It is currently a nice 72 degrees at 3am in the morning!
Frozen Windscreens, frozen car doors, many piles up on the M25.......More accidents on the M1 getting home...I remember those days.....with fear!
Why live in those conditions? It happens every year.....at least here the chances of getting hit by a hurricane are slim :)
