We've had sub-freezing temps and measurable snowfalls in droves; today we're supposed to be above freezing (slightly) for the first time in a month. All I can say is, COME ON, SPRING!!!!!

Not sure I can say it has been a "dreadful" winter. There has been a lot of snow, the temps have hit new lows, and few records have been set here.

I am clearly reminded of why I would like to move from NE Ohio to somewhere below the Mason Dixon line.

Post-holiday blues had me down for a while but now I'm perking up at the prospect that Spring is only a couple of months away. Exercising daily is helping me tremendously to stay positive..

Today was one of those days that made me emoticon & emoticon.

Temps above 40 degrees, some emoticon, no emoticon; went for a wonder 1 hour walk. That was allemoticonemoticonemoticon

I know though, that any day now it will be emoticon and wind, and more freezing.

So, yes, I am dreading the return of winter.

The "January thaw" has been helpful. DH and I went for a walk since it was warm enough (for me). It would have been nice to have some more sun though.

The days are getting longer emoticon

I don't like it being dark earlier and shorter days. That is what affects me most. The winter itself is not so much the issue, I think it's the waking up when it's dark and coming home to the dark. At least now it's starting to stay a little bit lighter longer, past 5pm

Remember the journey will take time and does not happen without love and support and belief in yourself! And a little help from my SP friends!

I almost slept for 8 hours That is what I like but I spark till midnight and I would like to be in bed earlier than that. That way I will awaken with the sun . I always did that but that was when my sleep was intermittent. I started to use Melatonin and it has been a blessing for me.I would like to sleep with the MOON and stay awake with the sun. We are doing full spectrum lights maybe it helps. I think staying positive and sparking helps too.

Hi there just been able to think about getting back to you. I had cataract surgery developed IRITIS and that took and still does take a lot of time. I am a very slow old typist and to make matters worse my Lap top fried so I am using my DH windows Vista, that really messes me up but whenever I have my own computer life SHOULD be easier.
I am from England almost 50 years in Maine. Back there we had much longer sunlight and I never felt like this. Maine should be in Atlantic time by the clocks so we are really sun light
Deprived. Thanks for having me here. Pat in Maine emoticon

Still raining and going to go thru Tues as well. At least at the moment it is brighter but stays in the 50s. Lighting my candles and had hoped to start walking this knee outside. Trying torad which i love, do the exercises but am tired of being inside and the gloom.I am not a patient patient with this knee. This rain seems to be everywhere, now flood warnings as well as the tornadoes. My heart goes out to those who have lost their homes. I will always remember last summer when the fire threatened our home and the town. I just hope all this bad weather goes away. Have a good day. Georgine emoticon

Nothing here but snow and more snow plus wind and cold.My back and shoulder are bothering me so i don't dare shovel either. Poor puppy but she loves the snow. I am tired of all the clothes and boots. Of course, there is no sunshine so makes the day so gloomy. Spring ever going to come??? Georgine

Summer down under is coming to an end, so that can only be good news for y'all.

It has been an awesome summer. Loads of sunshine & VERY dry, which is very unusual. I'm not complaining b/c that means I have had some fab bush walks & enjoyed the sun.

We really got dumped on so I am enjoying being outside with the puppy. Cloudy but bright so it doesn't depress me. We haven''t had a decent northern Minnesota winter in 2 or 3 years. Love seeing the nice big white snowbanks and snow we will get much needed moisture in the spring. Temp is 19 above, a heat wave compared to the last few weeks!! have a great day ever emoticon yone!!

I am doing better as it is colder so even if it is cloudy it has been bright, kind of a cloudy blue. I am finally getting back on track but still have to get more exercise. i don't worry on days when i am up and down the basement steps a ton of times as well as housework but still need to get back to leg lifts, arm curls etc. My doctor said to do the leg lifts with weights, and i did until the holidays, so my muscles will be stronger when I have knee surgery. i have to work back into it. I keep my candles going when it is dark and still have the Xmas lights up. The girls put the tree up so they have to take it down, too big and heavy for us. My youngest daughter and i both looked into buying a lamp but have not acted on it. Have a good day everyone, Georgine emoticon

I know; I'm fighting it too. One part of me wants to work out; but then "it's cold and gray and I'm tired" wins out.

Not a good day here. The weather is depressing. Cloudy, foggy (zero visibility) and only in the 40's. Just have not felt like doing anything.
Hope tomorrow is better.

REALLY not liking this winter. We had rain all day yesterday on top of what snow is still there so ended up with water over ice. Dummy me insisted on wearing my clogs to bowling even tho I knew they are no good in water but they are so easy to slip on and off i wore them anyway. So, slipped on the way to the truck after bowling and have a sore spot on my hip. I canceled a clinic appt. for 8 this morning after I went outside and saw the ice everywhere, wasn't going to chance my hubby falling. i would have worn my cleats. Now after it is icy and wet it is going to get colder and snow on top of that ice, this is the third time this winter we have been thru this but this is the worst. Now we are going to get single digits and below at nite. Really have had enuff of winter and, of course, it is cloudy and gloomy again. Yuk! Schools are also closed. At least when it gets that cold the sun is usually out in a clear blue sky!! More candles til then. Georgine emoticon

We're going to have great weather this weekend in our area and I'm already noticing that it stays light a LITTLE bit longer every day now. My mood is looking up today. I hope everyone else is feeling good, too.

I can live with winter except for the cloudy dark days. I do miss walking outside because it seems to be either too cold (wind never seems to stop) or we get a thaw and start the slush to ice conditions again. that gets disgusting

Yes I dread winter! I hate being cold, and not being able to go outside and play with my horses, and I hate that everything is brown and dead. BUT, I will not let it get me down. I've decided that I can make it through this-after all, I've done it for years, right? I am determined to get up in the mornings and exercise because that helps me so much! Since it's January, winter is more than half over and I can last through! Also, we've hardly had a winter here again. Not that I'm complaining! It hasn't been very cold and the weather has been beautiful, except that we need rain, desperately. We ended the year down 15 inches-not good. But thank you God, the weather has been mild.

I love the fall with all the colors and no bugs and i used to like winter but our winter last year and this year have been too warm creating icy conditions and have my allergies worse than they ever were. I like to see a nice snowfall and love to shovel and be outside tho I can live without the storms dumping a ton on us at once. Anyway, I woke to sunshine this morning and I feel wonderful so I know i am one that needs that sunlight. I burn a lot of candles because they help and I don't have little ones anymore so can enjoy them. We have had so many days of cloudy dark days so lots of people are complaing. The sun brings the cold, 2 below this morning, hihg of 16 but I don't care as long as i see the sun streaming in here like it is. Not sure how often i will post til after Xmas but i was glad to find this team. Hoe everyone has sunshine today!! emoticon Georgine from way up north in Minnesota emoticon

Do not like fall, winter. It means plants die down, leaves fall, everything goes brown. Also means I can't garden. Hate waking up in the dark and coming home in the dark. Plus anything below 70 is cold to me, lol, was born in the wrong state.

Hope everyone is doing well

The dark, short days get me. In addition, I live in an area that has very few sunny days during the whole year. The clouds often seem like they are out to smother me.
