I actually like the snow and winter weather, especially when it gets cold and wintery by Christmas.

I like snow and Christmas, but I donít like how cold it gets.

Cold and snow go together though...  ???

Neither Ria or myself are fans of the cold, and much prefer the temperature to be in the 70s. Either when we're inside or the weather outside.  :)

I enjoy the cold weather and I love it when it snows as long as I don't need to drive anywhere.  Where I live, winters aren't too severe and we usually get one small snow per year, usually in January or February.  After such a hot summer, even for South Carolina standards, I'm ready for some cool weather.  Surprisingly, we didn't get any rain or wind from incoming hurricanes this summer or early fall.  I sealed up my windows with Frost King foam and took out my window box A/C to make my room a draft free zone, ready for the cold air  :)  I'm also going to try out a Philips 125 watt BR40 heat lamp to take the chill out of the air in my house.

I can't successfully put it into words how much I hate winter weather, as well as the cold. I highly despise it.
As of now, just 9 more days until I move into my new apartment. My friend/coworker was going to help me move my
bike into my new apartment/garage. (I'd ride my bike, and he would follow with my bike supplies in his Mazda Miata)
That no longer can happen because rain began earlier than expected today, and is followed by cold air, and possible winter weather
on Friday and Saturday.
I have no heated gear, so I can't ride in cold weather. Luckily, for Monday they claim it should be 50 degrees and sunny.
That's the only nice day until rain moves in for Tuesday, followed by more cold air.
Yeahhh... no. Not a fan of winter, at all.

At this time of year we lose the light just after 4 in the afternoon, and we are reluctant to go out when it gets dark.  :(

Thanks to winter, I'm making all kinds of gains. All kinds.

The only problem is, it's not muscle gains. It's fat gains. I'm slower, and much lazier during
winter. Haven't worked out since 4 weeks ago and I can already see my face has gotten a little pudgier.
This isn't the first time this has happened, so, mark my words. When next year rolls around I will be
back physically fit again.
Moving to another apartment definitely isn't helping things right now for me either.

I'm with you on the no bugs part. My favorite season is fall, not too hot or too cold, bugs start to go away.
