I live in central NY so I know what you mean about the weather. I've been putting off moving my walking indoors (seem to keep up with it better outside); we only have 3-4 inches on the ground although I can see the snow falling outside as I type this. Someone else suggested checking with your schools and with malls in the area for walking programs and I thought that idea might help you too.

My name is Tristine and I joined Sparks back at the end of Sept. 2010. I had been faithfully walking for about 6 weeks- missed only 3-4 days. When I first started out, I wasn't even able to walk a mile however; by the end of the 6 weeks, I was walking 4-5 miles with ease. Then my husband got a new job and life became more hectic. I quit walking and realized I was only hurting my self and my goal to becoming healthy again. Four weeks had passed before I laced up my walking shoes again...only walked 2 miles and was totally worn out. Today I actually scheduled a set time for my walks so that I have designated "ME" time. I live in the north, so snow will be flying soon, and I want to fit in as many walks as possible before the roads become too icy.
