I've decided that I hate winter. Sure, I'm getting crotchety in my old age, but what good is there in winter? Christmas is but one day, and it breeds greed and materialism. New Year's is nothing but a drunken mess. Those two days aside, winter is nothing but three to six months of long drawn out misery. It's cold, being outside is miserable and causes physical pain. Heating costs skyrocket. Said heating causes dehydration, causing skin to crack and bleed. People die under such conditions.
To make matters worse, people, especially those nut jobs in New Hampshire, like to go out in this weather and engage in activities categorized as "winter sports." Not just skiing and/or snowboarding, but snowshoeing, winter camping, ice fishing, ice skating, anything that starts with ice... ARGH! I hate winter. Bah.
