Oh man, this is the best time of the year! I'm generally sweating during spring, summer, and fall so winter makes me nice and comfy :)

Not to mention all of the holidays; I like eating ;)

Essex: do you have any leaves to rake, gutters to clear, any outside-ish tasks at all you can do?

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. :-)

Essex_boy!

Are you from Essex in England?

You could always remove blinds curtains etc to let in more natural light!

Gotta agree with Essex on this one. After Christmas and New Year's, which this year is a drag since the entire family has a really awful cold, there is really little to look forward to doing.

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.

Amen, it's my first winter in Scotland. It seems like it never gets fully light. I'm from the southwest(U.S.) where it's always sunny. Bring on the sun!

I like the sun, but hate hot weather. Dreary days don't bother me like most, but I'm getting &*%$ing sick of shoveling snow in colorado!

Across the pond we call this cabin fever - Many occupants of glorous Basildon suffer from this 24/7/365.

No I dont have any outside work to do, I tend to do winter tasks before the winter comes on.

And yes I am Essex.

Yeah, I normally dread the winter, happy to hibernate until it passes. On a whim, I just bought one of these [ski-doo.com] to make it a little more enjoyable. Today was the first day that we had enough snow to take it for a spin. The amount of acceleration on this thing is unreal. It just screams.

I'm from the UK, but moved to Florida to overcome these issues!

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 :)
