Stuff I hate about Winter

 “In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer.”
Albert Camus

  1. Static electricity
  2. Dry skin
  3. Cold, red, runny noses
  4. Eating too much
  5. Not wanting to get outta bed in the morning
  6. Not wanting to get in the tub
  7. Not wanting to get out of the tub
  8. Not wanting to get in the shower
  9. Not wanting to get out of the shower
  10. Freezing, bone-deep cold rain that drenches the soul through the
  11. Layers upon layers upon layers of clothes
  12. Ugly grey trees
  13. Flat, soggy brownish yellow ground
  14. The still blue-grey evenings just before dark
  15. Too much dry heat
  16. Driving cars that make me sleepy and struggling to stay awake
  17. Cold wind that splits right through me
  18. After the Super Bowl, what is there to do?
  19. I just hate being cold.
  20. I hate winter, period.

Sorry if I sound so melancholy. But by the end of February, I’m really tired of winter.  Fortunately, I do live in the South where this year Georgia’s Groundhog General Beauregard Lee did NOT see his shadow at the Yellow River Game Ranch near Athens, so hopes for an early spring!  Yay!

How about you?  Love winter, hate it, or somewhere in between?  Let me know.

  1. Bleh. I’m with you regarding Winter, and even though I live in Arizona, it seems one’s blood gets thinner so what I could handle in Amarillo, I can’t stand anymore.

    1. No kidding, Shannon. Think about those winters we endured as a kid and our families still live through. Ugh. No way. I can’t stand the GA winters. I’m sure I did get spoiled by living in south Florida for 7.5 years. 3 days of winter which meant 40 degrees and wearing a sweater.
