For those of us living in winter right now. If you're from a warmer climate go fuck yourself.

Anyways, it's currently the coldest week so far during this winter. It's only -10*c or so but you can still feel it. My skin is getting really dry and I need to put lotion on atleast once per day. Worse than the dry skin is probably the lack of sun and life. I miss anything the green plants, sounds and smells.

Pretty sure it's affecting my energy levels as well. I'm constantly tired every winter, and my bed times move further into the night unless I force myself real hard.

On the bright side the winter is made for being cozy inside. It also makes you appreciate spring and summer a lot more.

So let's hear your view of it.

I don't know man... I drove home with my windows open. 70 degrees and nice.

Actually, this is the first year I haven't had to deal with winter - I moved 1000 miles South back in the summer. I get seasonal effect disorder, on top of being a depressed pessimist all the time, so winter really screws with me. Even in a warmer climate now, I still get SED. :/

Well I live in NY, and for some reason this year it's been on a freezing for a few days, warm for a few days schedule all Winter. For example, it was freezing just earlier this week on Sunday, and snowed like crazy. Yesterday and today, it was 48F outside.

That being said, I'm still just as tired, run down, and generally miserable as I usually am in the Winter, haha.

I've got sunburn on the beach. It has been getting depressingly cold in the mornings though, sometimes even as low as the high 50s F! And I can't leave my window open all night or I need more than two blankets, and its always too far away from me so it just sucks.

It's been warm here for a few weeks, then suddenly today it dropped to -5C out of nowhere.
I always have a cold though, so I don't feel any different for it. Just wish it would stop ****ing raining.

Silly Swedes. In Alberta a few weeks ago we had -35 for a week. It was -50 for a few days with the windchill.

It's cold. It's dreary. It's bleak.

I have discoid meniscus, and for some reason it always gives me trouble when it's cold.

Being a student, I can never afford to have the heating on. Our house is arctic. You can see your breath in every room of the house almost all the time. Mornings are the worst, especially at 8am and you've just got out of the shower.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

It's basically been like spring all winter, somewhere between 40-60 degrees all month.

I don't think it's dipped below 30˚F all winter. Maybe at night once or twice.


Usually we're cold as shit, but not this year

We've barely had a winter this year, it's been more like autumn for months. A little colder this week but only down to about -1/-2*c. I seem to be the only one around here who wants it to be colder and wants it to snow. Properly snow. I quite like it .

The only thing I don't like though is having to spend 20 minutes deicing the car inside and out in the morning (or even worse, in the evening when I finish work late and just want to go home)....that's a pain in the arse. That, and the car doesn't warm up properly for about 15-20 minutes; so because I live only 10 minutes drive away from work, i'm always freezing when I get there
You cannot choose the little time you're given in this world. You enter bare and unclothed, provided only with intelligence enough to choose how you spend your time. You always have a choice. Always. Though be warned, your choice can rarely be undone

It's not been too cold. But my mum thought I had Seasonal Affective Disorder for a couple months. I haven't been too bad now that the days are getting longer though
#23
Well, it was 70* F here yesterday. Today a little cooler. No leaves makes being in the woods more enjoyable, there are no bugs, golf is more fun since I'm not dieing on the course, and my room isn't 2000 degrees. I'd say it's treating me well.

It hit -40C a couple weeks ago and lasted up until this past week.

For the most part though, winter just makes me put my car away and switch from a hoodie to a winter jacket when I go out.

As a kid/teen I loved winter as it meant hockey, skating, and sledding. Now, it just means I can't drive my car.

I like Winter. The rain, the gray tones, the overall darkness of the season...
That said, i FREAKIN' HATE the cold.

Inside my house the fireplace in the living room is lit up everyday, but since it's a big house the temperature on the other rooms is about 15ºC / 60ºF, which is horrible for me.
I have poor blood circulation on my hands and feet, so after a little while sitting on the computer, for example, they feel like blocks of ice.
Especially my feet, even if i'm wearing something like heavy-duty Caterpillar boots.

So, i can deal with the snow, the rain, the fog... I even love them.
But low temperatures? No way, Jose.

you do not wish you had snow, snow is the physical manifestation of the concept of bleak in it's pure crystalline form.

snow is fun for about 5 minutes, after that it's just depressing.

unless you're snowboarding/snowmobiling, that is.

Coldest it's been is -9C, so I haven't been affected that much. (Except when the electricity's cut)


It's been raining the past week so it's been pretty warm, but we're expecting snow in the next few days.

Do you mean girlfriend who's also friend, or having sex with your girlfriend and a friend?

I'd rather die from hypothermia rather than dehydration.
