I'm 41...spent 35 years in NY and never really had an issue with the winter. Moved to VA about 6 years ago and really enjoyed the winter being a bit shorter and milder. The past two years have been close to the NY winters I was used to, minus the snow amounts.

This winter appears to be never ending...just tired of the cold, dreary weather and short days.

I have no ambition this winter.

I can now deal with the heat more than the cold.

Fuck I need the spring.

I made it about 32 years and moved 1400 miles south specifically because I hated winter so much, had to make sure I was far enough south that I wouldn't experience it, 68 out right now so I guess that worked.

42 with back problems....the cold, like below 25 is really starting to get to me. Shivering just makes my back pain worse, so I think I might have to do the Florida retiree thing.

When I was in the .mil, single digits and negatives didn't really bother me although I did have a minor case of frostbite on my left ring finger.

Me=21 years as a mechanic with VDOT (not any more).

Worked on snow removal stuff when it broke & where it broke. Not in a warm & dry shop. Afton Mountain, Wintergreen you name it.

You think cold weather & snow sucks.

Try being cold & soaking wet for 12-16 hours or more working on stuff to keep the roads clear for the sheep that can't fucking drive in the shit.

It's why I left the New York area to live in Florida.

It's a freezing 58 degrees here now at midnight!

eta: BTW, I'm golfing tomorrow and hope it's not too cold in the morning that shorts and a tee shirt hinder my first two holes.

I hate winter with a passion.

Every year it starts to become nearly unbearable for me in mid February, like its never going to end.

I've noticed that it's gotten worse the older I get.

I think I might have seasonal affective disorder, but I'm not interested in getting it diagnosed at this point.

I know exactly how you feel. I keep asking myself " why in the hell am I still living here". The winter ruins everything fun. I don't mind rain or even the cold but I hate snow.

48 here.

I don't mind winter ITSELF, because cold does not bother me since I have been a lifelong northern boy. I actually think winter is kind of beautiful. On weekends I usually walk a few miles on the nearby state forest trails, which I will be doing tomorrow in fact.

What I find myself liking less and less as I get older though, is having to share the road with absolute, shit-for-brains idiots who have no concept of how to drive safely in winter, and thus endanger everyone around them.

I took my work car home the night before it snowed last week. Coming in at 3:00 I had the pleasure of getting stuck eastbound on Afton. Ended up getting free thanks to a ambulance that got stuck and blocked both lanes behind me. Crown Vic's and Goodyear Eagles are a shitty winter combination.

I am over 60, have spent the last 41 years in Alaska and I love wniter time! Trouble we have not had much of a winter this year, you all in the 'lower 48' are hoggin it all. Send it up here, we know what to do with it.

Bah! You are just not Norwegian like me, Its our time to shine when winter comes.
When it gets cold? We start drinking heavily, we become suicidal and depressed and moody.
Lack of sunlight, you see?

I hope to retire to a nice hot section of Florida one day. Hopefully at the beach. I was in the Tampa area from December 1988 to January 1993. I really miss the HEAT and the brutal sunshine.
Link Posted: 1/29/2011 8:30:21 PM EDT
Yep, Absolutely!
Link Posted: 1/29/2011 8:33:12 PM EDT
I grew up in Kansas, Nebraska, and Wyoming. I spent most of my time every winter playing in massive snow drifts, digging snow caves, cross country skiing, snow camping, etc. I think it was pretty kick ass right up until I got my driver's license and had to start driving in that shit. So yeah, every year since I was 16 I hate snow that much more. Luckily for me, other than a few scattered snowstorms, I haven't lived anywhere it snowed significantly since Iceland. There is no way in hell I'll ever live anywhere with regular snow (the November through March kind) again.
Link Posted: 1/29/2011 8:36:49 PM EDT
Cold weather doesn't really bother me. Even if it get's into the single digits here in CO, the sun is usually blazing and it's dry.

I ride my bike(pedal) in temps down to the upper 20's, If it gets too cold/crappy, I'll just drive 20 mins up the mountain and go skiing.

I have always hated winter.

As I get older, I hate summer more, too.

How I revel in the 3 weeks of "cool" or "warm" we get every year.
