      I know exactly how it is, especially here in Alaska, 9 months of winter means 9 months of freezing cold and roughly 18 hours of darkness a day. Summers are great when we have the exact opposite, but they are far to short. My dad works up on the North Slope in Prudhoe Bay for a month at a time, the sun doesn't rise at all during the winter months, and the temperatures rarely get above 0. So I guess I can't complain too much.

        If I may ask, why do you live in Alaska?

          Hear, hear! North of England gets pretty darn cold this time of year, especially when your dog is pining to go outside and you're barely dressed, couldn't wait to get back into bed and literally smother myself with the covers, the joys of working the late shift!

            shower + coffee + hot breakfast + warm clothing = success in coping with it :thumb:

            Plus, for me, having time to do it in a deliberate way without rushing was essential.

            I say was because I'm retired now.

              Born and raised here, and I love it. I'm in Anchorage, so in the summer it's perfect, sunny and high 60's, low 70's, and in the winter it usually stays above 0, so it's not too bad. I can't stand hot weather and I love the snow, I would much rather deal with 0 degree weather than 90+ degree weather.

                what I would do for it never to get that cold... living on the praries we don't get the amount of snow you do.. but oh goodness does it get cold.

                  I'm the same. All summer the only words you will get out of me are "I can't wait until it's freezing cold". 2 reasons:

                  a) I find it much easier to wrap up warm than I do to cool down, especially at night when I'm trying to sleep, can't sleep if it's too hot.
                  b) I'm asthmatic, so contrary to what a lot of people think I suffer a lot more in the heat than I do in the cold.

                    That's another reason I love the snow, because almost 90 percent of the time if it's snowing the temperature is above 20, if it's clear sky's in the middle of winter, you should probably just stay inside. Last winter we got over 133 inches of snow, so it was a pretty "warm" winter.

                        I don't have a problem waking up when it's freezing but it always gets to me when I get out of the shower. I shower before I go to be too, just habit and I probably don't need to in the morning but I do anyway and I just want to stand in there for an hour lol.

                          Winter is already here for me, I've been plugging in my truck and starting it 30 minutes before I leave now for about 3 weeks, we had our first snow fall on the 29th of September, and it's snowed a couple times since then. Temperatures have been dropping into the teens at night and daily temperatures have been in the 30's.

                              Same here, it's snowed a few times, and there is just a small dusting on the ground here and there, but it's creeping down the mountains pretty quickly. We normally get our first actual snow fall around Halloween as well. Growing up we always hoped it would snow after Halloween, but of course it always seemed like we got our first big snow fall on the 31st, which is no fun. We always had to buy our costumes a size too big so we could fit them over our snowsuits.
