we too are in for the deep freeze again...I do hate winters...but I can stay in the house and go to the heated truck, to the heated mall or mkt or someplace else with heat..
During the summer...I can go from the AC house to the AC truck to the AC store or go to the ocean..or jump in the pool..

I can deal with just about anything winter wise, but not the wind. Some one hear reported of seeing one flower bloom. I had such a good laugh.

Actually, we just learn to adapt. LOTS of layers, ugly sweaters, hats, gloves, etc.

And winter driving is not that bad. I put extra bags of water softener salt in my car for traction, make sure my tires are in good shape, and give myself plenty of time - you just have to slow down, or risk spinning out and ending up in a ditch.

you are not alone! My mom and I were just talking about how much we hate the wind today. It's cold, and loud, and just plain scary lol. A blustery day it is.

So many relatively mild winter days get ruined by the wind. During other times of year when the temps are warm, wind spoils so many outdoor activities.

OTOH, there's no smog

I agree. I am in Massachusetts and the wind gusts were up to 50mph last night and this morning. Along with some wind whipped rain.. it felt colder than it actually was (the temps today are unseasonably warm). The wind was scary last night.. woke me up out of a deep sleep with the whole house shaking. Not a good feeling!

I totally concur. I am not genetically equipped for cold.weather. Brrrrr...we're towing our camper from Atlanta to south Georgia today in a 15-20 mph wind. Gusts up to 35mph. That can be an unnerving experience, but so far, so good.

It's been really windy in my area of Texas, as well, lately. I hate when it wakes me up. I hate that I take the time to fix my hair and that that is shot to bits as soon as I get out of my car. I hate that it chaps my lips. I hate that it makes it so we can't take our family walks in the evening.

I left west Texas to get away from the ridiculous wind. Now I'm being reminded of why. I also hate cold. Now, I know all of you north people will say that we don't experience cold in Texas and blah blah blah and all of that might be true by your standards. By mine, though, I don't like temperatures below 50º. I don't like it one bit. Please come back, Mr. Sunshine. I see that he will be warming things up back into the 70's by this Saturday, so that's good. And it looks like the wind is taking a break for a while, so that is double good.
