I get the blues really bad in the winter. I hate the cold and I hate the S word even more. I actually get enraged over snow falling.

I'm not an outdoorsy person by any means, any time of year, but I just hate being cooped up inside by force, because the roads are too dangerous, or having to leave extremely early to go to work, or the nights where I'm not sure if I'll even make it to work. Most of my hobbies are indoor ones, but I like being able to go outside for a minute or so without needing a huge jacket or mittens.

I don't even know how my new car will handle the snow this year. I need new front tires, for sure, though.

I curse my parents for not moving to Arizona before I was born, just because my mom was pregnant with me. Like pregnant women have never traveled before. Or why they didn't leave as soon as it was spring time.

This is exactly how I feel as well. Its like you took the thoughts right out of my head! I am saving my money up and when I have enough, I am moving to a warmer climate that has no snow.

Last night was our first frost warning

We had the heat cranked in the car

I am not a happy camper. My toes almost fell off last night.

It's in the mid nineties here and that actually feels awesome to me, but the light has started changing and I hate that.

It not only means winter is coming (and my hatred for winter is the stuff of legends), but it also means that serious migraine season is upon me. The winter light is excruciating to me. It's so bright and so blue and hits at such a low angle you can never freaking avoid it.

I am convinced Hell is icy cold, windy, and about three oclock in the afternoon all the time.

Still in the upper 80's here. Dammit, I want to have an actual Fall this year and not go straight from Summer to Winter. I hate winter, I want at least a month or two of nice temps and pretty colors before that hell.

If it makes you feel better, we haven't had a "real" fall yet. This is more of late October into November bullshit here, minus snow (and thank GOD we haven't seen that yet).

We went from upper 80s/90s high humidity to a few days of 70s with no humidity, back to a few days of super crazy humidity.......then, September 3rd.......BAM! A high of only low 50s. It almost got down to frost temps that night.

Ever since, the hottest it gets is maybe upper 60s. We've had one or two days in the 70s, but that's for a few hours in the afternoon. Most days are upper 50s to low 60s, sunny days are upper 60s.

It's getting dark before 8. It's still pretty dark when I leave work at 7. This. Is. Bullshit.

We have frost warnings, nights are getting darker, I dont like winter but I do like to be in a warm house with a cup of hot chocolate watching the snow fall in the night when I have nowhere to go.

I went to buy a coat today, and there were some I loved and my luck was.........for a week until YESTERDAY they were all half price.
