@acciotoni:  AH! Negative 28!!! That is crazy. Here I complain when it gets down to freezing here in Northern California.

I just Googled your location…today I learned where Wasilla, AK is. How long does it take you to get to Anchorage? I have family in that area.

@acciotoni:  Ahh I see, towards Denali. Well I am thinking warm thoughts for you!

 

My Darling Husband and I are trying to plan a land and sea trip to Alaska. What is the best month to come in your opinion? We were thinking July or August.

@acciotoni:  I hate the cold, I live in PA, grew up in CT and I could never imagine living somewhere colder. I am really hoping to move further south eventually. I need sunshine and warmth, the winter is very depressing.

@acciotoni:  UGH plleleeeaaaase I am so with you OP.

I HATE WINTER. I hate waking up in the dark. I hate being cold all the time. I hate having to put on 900 layers just to go around the corner for a beer or some bread. Winter can suck it.

Plus summer is when I’m getting married, so there’s that too.

I basically spend the whole winter waiting for it to get warm again and the whole summer dreading the winter. 

I really need to move somewhere warmer.

Haha…I’ll trade you! I’m sitting here sweltering in the Australian heat. I cannot wait for winter.

Went dress shopping a few times in the last couple of weeks. It is so hard to try on big long dresses when you’re all sticky. Yuck!

@Bebealways:  Perhaps you need a warmer coat? I got one of those crazy long down puffy coats from Eddie Bauer a few years ago. It is the warmest thing, one of best purchases ever.

sometimes in winter I have to roll my car windows down because it gets hot. I really recommend it, if you can stay warm in winter that’s half the battle and I no longer need 100 layers. I could wear a bikini with that thing and be toasty.

Oh man!!!!!! It’s not that bad here in central Pennsylvania, but the weather is still bad enough to make my 45 minute commute up over some mountains about awful. And I could totally stay with a friend where I work when the weather is bad so I don’t have to miss it… except there’s no place to park my car. I have to pay $10 to park it in a downtown garage because there ARE no overnight lots in town and where my friend lives, I can’t park on the street where they might do snow removal. It’s actually quite ridiculous.

My boss is so cool about me not coming to work with bad weather (case in point, I didn’t go in yesterday) because I’m technically part time, but I can’t really AFFORD to do that! (Because I make beans :P, and a missed day at work is drastic.)

I am looking for higher paying full time work, and I’m dreading what will happen when I CAN’T take off, and if it’s still going to be 45 minutes away ๐Ÿ™ SPRING/SUMMER GET HERE SOON!!!!

@acciotoni:  I will no longer complain about the cold weather. I thought 15 with a wind chill of 1 was bad.

I hope these next few months hurry along so you guys can get warm!

I don’t mind the cold (well, extreme cold would be a problem–we were in the negatives all last week), but the ice SUCKS.
