...Spring can't be very far away. I love all the seasons, but I continue to find Winter in the northeast/New England to be tough, no matter how positive I am. Loved this December!

As a child and. Christmas Eve baby, it has always been about the snow and lots of it. From the crisp, cleansed air to the crunching underfoot and how at dusk it glistens like diamond dust, winter is a beautiful season.

Just sold my house.  Lived in for 35 years,  on 2 acres in the country...Was so sad, but am ok.  Was really hard getting out in the winter,  although the neighbor always plowed everyones long driveways,    He had the equipment. 

Now living in a town, only 5 minutes from my daughter and her family,  so maybe this winter will be better.  She was very worried about me and was hard for her to get to my house, which was 30 minutes away. 

Don't really like anything about winter,  except that does give me a reason to stay inside and do some artwork,  which takes up a good part of the day, when I really get into it.

I can appreciate what you have said in your post, but about your "Bah Humbug" - consider this:  there are some of us, retired and not-yet-retired, who cannot afford to even consider taking off for Florida, or anywhere else, for a month or more each year.  So please consider yourself privileged from that aspect (and yes, I realize that you likely worked hard for the privilege.)

 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------I was trying to comment to the topic and didn`t mean to ruffle your feathers. We have family and friends who live in same area of Florida and have been doing the trip for 10 years.Yes we can afford it after almost 40 years of working  and feel privilege to afford to go. We would have bought a place in Florida but we really live in a great place in the north and I can`t stand the Florida hot summer.


@easyed598   -   Thanks for response, & I realized you were not aiming to ruffle feathers.  Yes, hot and humid summers are part of Florida living, of course.  I am still mildly surprised when I encounter folks who claim to enjoy the heights of the summer heat & humidity here - & I encounter them fairly frequently!

If I moved to Florida, I could claim to be a native as well! I was born in Miami .. miscalculation by Mom's Ob/Gyn! We returned to NYC when I was 5 days old; I was a very young "jet setter" (there were no jets back then).

We usually go to Florida for a month every year(March). After last year`s winter (worst in 40 years) we  decided to go 3 months(January1st -thru April 1st). Wouldn`t you know , we haven`t had any measurable snow this season and we are heading south in 3 weeks. Bah Humbug!

Hope you enjoy your time in Florida during upcoming stay, even though you may not be leaving snowdrifts behind this year.
