I’m already over winter. I hate it. I hate the cold, I hate how dark it is, I hate being cooped up inside, I hate wearing heavy clothes and winter coats. I think I suffer from SAD, it has lessen a little bit since I started taking Vitamin D supplements, but I always get so down and apathetic during the winter.
I do NOT want to live in the Midwest my entire life (I have for 28 years so far and hated every single winter). I need to live someplace warm like Florida. I love Florida, I go there at least once a year. I’m going to start planning a trip for late-February or early-March.
Any other bees utterly despise winter?

The feels like temp is currently 2, the zipper on my favorite winter boots just broke and I have 3 more months of this nonsense to deal with
Why did I leave Florida?

The minute the holidays are over, I start longing for the beach! It’s supposed to be a fairly mild winter for us at least as far as the weather is projecting through February.

I hate winter, like with a passion. I have to say that oddly, we have had it pretty good this winter. Two small bits of snow and tomorrow it’s going to be 60 degrees, holy cow am I excited. I will take it over the feet of snow we had last year.

I hate winter too and im from new york so im no stranger to the cold. This week in Colorado its going to be in the 60s. Which is great but also sucky cuz it was just 18 degrees last week. Lucky me caught a cold from the change. So im with you. I cant wait to move back to north carolina where the weather is fairly constant.

Our winters here can go either way — horrible feet upon feet of snow and temps never rising above 25°F for months on end, or we could have short dustings of snow interspersed with days of warm and sunshine. The past two winters have been horrible (snowmageddon, anyone?) but this year seems alright so far. It’s 16°F today and completely cloudy, and going up to the 40s and 50s and sunny through the weekend. Pittsburgh weather is insane. I don’t mind the winters like this one has been so far, but the ones like snowmageddon, I want to die.

@tksjewelry – You’re not too terribly far from me! I agree, last year’s winter was much worse. Here in KC we still haven’t gotten snow that covered the ground or stuck for more than a day. But I still want some 70+ degree weather! 🙂

Lol, I’m in WI and winter still hasn’t begun! There is the lightest of dustings on the ground, the last two days were in the mid-teens for the first time, but now it’s back to 40’s through the weekend.
But I too, am looking forward to sunny days and warmer weather!

15 degrees this morning… I haaaaaaaate the cold, but I’m attached to New England since I grew up here and all my friends and family are here. Ugh. Better weather and cheaper living down south, but I just cant bring myself to move.

I have always said i belong somewhere tropical haha – i hate the cold! We have been pretty fortunate to have a mild winter so far this year but its only in the 30’s today ugh! when its cold i never want to do anything but hide under a blanket on my couch.
My husband and I usually do a trip in March somewhere warm to get a break from the cold, and usually by the time we get back we only have a few more weeks of winter 😉 i look forward to it every year.

So far this year we have had a really mild winter. We hardly even have a dusting of snow, which is really rare! Normally I suffer from mild/moderate SAD, too, but I have found that taking up a winter hobby and making the most of the season has helped a lot. When I sit around thinking about how I can’t wait for spring when it’s still months away, I get restless and depressed. This year, Fiance and I have decided to take up snowshoeing so we can at least have fun (and get exercise) with the snow!
But, go figure, we don’t have snow yet… Haha, I’m sure we will later this winter, though.

I’m allergic to the cold, winter is my nemesis.

I love seasons, but after Christmas I’m over it big time.
My husband is currently hospitalized with the flu, and I’ve got a cold that just won’t quit. And because I’m pregnant yup, can’t take a thing for it that actually does anything. So right about now, sunshine and warmth sounds amazing.

@KatyElle: I couldn’t agree more. In my opinion, Christmas is the main purpose of winter. January and February do nothing for me.
Also, I hope you feel better!
