I live in the northeastern part of the country, and winter is a complete nightmare every year.  I start dreading it in August, and the closer we get to winter, the more miserable I get.  We often have snow on Halloween, blizzards on Thanksgiving, and Christmas is an absolute white-out.  There is no redeeming quality to winter weather.  Stepping outside in subzero weather is downright painful.  We have to hide inside the house, huddled around the furnace, wrapped up in blankets.  The heating bills are so expensive, that we spend all year saving up the money to pay them.  We also have to buy heavy coats, warm boots, gloves, scarves, and hats.  We have to invest in snow shovels, ice scrapers, and rock salt,  We either buy a snowplow or need to hire someone to plow our driveways.  We have to drive four-wheel-drive vehicles in order to make it into work on snowy days.  There’s no way we can miss work, because we need to earn the money to pay for the furnace, snowplow, and rock salt.  There’s no glimpse of the sun for months at a time.  Everyone who lives here is pale and sickly and exhausted all winter long.  We are trapped in overheated air at all times.  Since there’s not enough moisture in the air, it sucks all the moisture out of our hair and skin.  We have problems with psoriasis, eczema, static shock, and bloody noses.  I suppose we could spend even more money on a humidifier.  It would be far cheaper, and much smarter, to just pick up and move someplace warmer.
