Why you say do I have such a problem with Fall and Winter? Well the main reason is as I stated above, it's cold. I would rather be able to step outside at any time, night or day, and not have to worry about how many layers of clothes to wear or whether or not I can go see a friend. You see, if there is 3 feet of snow on the ground you can't just get up and go...especially if you don't own a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Another reason I don't like the cold is because I live with 4 people, 3 of whom have their own built-in heaters! I'm not kidding, come to my house in the winter and the thermostat is set on 62 degrees! They've got to have Thermocare patches on their bodies or something. Now I know some of you love Fall and Winter but if you had to live in my house, aka the Arctic Circle, you wouldn't be too enthused about seeing snowflakes flying through the air IN YOUR ROOM! Hahaha okay I'm totally exaggerating about the snowflakes but you get my point.
So number three on my list of why I loath Fall and Winter are germs. Yes germs are everywhere, all the time, but as soon as that slight chill hits the air I'm done for. I think the germs and viruses automatically think my frostbitten, red nose is a bulls eye. I won't quit sniffling till late Spring. I know they say that eating right and exercising are great ways to prevent illness but I would love to ask how am I to take my daily constitutional with those aforementioned 3 feet of snow plus the excess snow that was plowed off of the road (by my dad nonetheless) covering the sidewalk? *Sigh*
I really can't think of anything nice about Fall or winter other than the leaves changing and the untouched snow that lasts for two minutes until the nearest boot-clad foot tromps all over it (WOW do I sound like a curmudgeon or what? I'm not really). Oh well, at least I'll have more time to read! :-)
Best Solution: Fly south for the winter.
What's your favorite season? I'd love to know why!
ETA: Did I mention how short the days are in Fall and Winter?
