You might find a bit of a pinkie in the next few minutes. Maybe. Did I mention I don't like wintah?

4. Still a bright sunny day here near Chicago
Edited on Wed Nov-11-09 03:50 PM by NNN0LHI
54 degrees.

I don't mind winter. I like watching the seasons change.

It will be spring before you know it. Then you will forget all about winter.

8. I usta ski until I blew a knee out in Kitzbuhl.
Perhaps that's why I am no longer a fan of wintah.

7. Wintah is wicked bad
I worked rotating shifts for a while. There were times I'd wake up and the clock would say 5:00 and I wouldn't have a clue whether it was morning or evening until I went out and flipped on the TV.

Working 8 to 5 in Boston in the wintah sucks.

10. No matter how many winters
I've been through, I just can't get used to the darkness. It really does feel like we've added another hour...the evenings before bedtime seem endless.

I hate winter. The darkness and cold, I mean.

Snowstorms themselves are pretty neat. Especially if one is snug and cozy inside with a roaring pellet stove fire and lots of hobbies to stay busy with. :)

11. Now if we could just find where the sun goes each night we might be able to stop this.

13. What's a pinkie?
I assume you don't mean a little finger.

I love winter, but heh, I'm in Texas. :)

15. A pinkie is when you launch an airplane off a carrier and all you see
is a tiny pink line on the horizon.

19. I can't wait for winter.
Summer is deadly to me. How people can live down South is beyond me. Even Boston is too hot for me. Hudson Bay here I come! :)

21. switching back to EST for four months is stupid.
leave DST in place during the winter. it would eliminate a lot of annoying clock switching if we never fell back.

29. Suburban parents whine that the kiddies have to wait
for the school bus in the dark.

Solution: reschedule school opening an hour later. Teenagers would love it.

22. I'm in Cabo, still plenty of light and quite comfortable.
J/K! I'm at home in N. California.

Somebody's gonna chime in, though, and they'll be in some fabulous warm place, like Rio, where it's summer.

:P

26. It's times like these I wish I had a Halliburton Weather Machine.
70 - 80 year round, slight ocean breeze and not an Autumn leaf or snowflake in sight. :smoke:

25. 53 years living in the Northeast...
and if I never see a single snowflake again, or another day when it's below 65, I'll die a happy man.

27. It is the result of Global Time Shifting. Soon it will be dark 24hrs/day.
Due to the overuse of computer and digital clocks.

Seriously, it is.
