Since I do a lot of my work outdoors in the open and often at night, I hate winter. Part of my work takes place in heated offices or the hangar, but it is totally unpredictable. So either I´m dressed to warm for inside or not warm enough for outside. Also, airport ramps are usually very windy places.
I have been to the tropics and I prefer tropical climate at any time.

When I was living in cities like Hamburg or Berlin, I used to hate winter. For the past five years, I have been living south of Munich within walking distance to the country side, where snow is (and actually stays as) something fluffy and white that is calming to look at. So winter has grown on me. And it seems that a daily dose of 1,000 to 2,000 i.u. of vitamin D help to battle my winter depression.

Winter has character, I have grown to prefer it over summer, how tastes change, infact come to think of it the change came with a kind of spiritual awakening long time back, since then I feel more in tune with winter, its like the two gel together.

I'm in Miami so yes it is AWESOME at the same time when I was in D.C. and when I travel because cold and dark winters were not the norm for me and now still are no longer the norm I enjoy them when I get the chance to get into some cold winters or shorter days.

I dislike parts of the winter, but overall I love it. I'm allergic to bees and it's the only time of year I don't have to consciously remember to take my Epi-Pen with me whenever I go outside (even to check the mailbox).

Do I like winter ?
Oh yeah, I really LOVE winter ! Like, the inch of snow we got yesterday, and after I had the sidewalk all swept off out to the car, the other inch and a half we got today.........and the wife wanting to go to the "Follies" at the old theater up in Rockville tonight with her lady friend, Carol; sure, I love the wintertime; I even swept the sidewalk off again and helped her out to Carol's car ! ( Not that I'm gonna get mine out and slip and slide around, when I can sit here and watch the fire place burn, listen to Mike Huckabee on Fox News, and lie to everyone on Non-Av about how much I LOVE this good ole winter weather ! ( I gotta keep an eye on the drive way though; she'll be coming back home after while, and I gotta run out and help her back into the house so she doesn't slip on the snow and hurt her butt falling down on the slick sidewalk.)
Another thing I really like about the winter time, is because I'm so "needed"; when I'm still trying to sleep in the morning, and all red the birds out back are pecking on the back window in the family room, trying to wake me up so I can fill the feeder back up with sunflower seeds so they can eat "breakfast"; then Steamer and Blackie (who got to sleep in the laundry room last night cause it got down to 10 "above" outside,) are trying to get me to come and let them back outside, all while the cats are meowing to get their cat food filled up, and while I'm doing that, Miss Arlie needs another carton of 2.25% down from the stack up near the ceiling; maybe when I get that done I can run back outside and empty the cat-liter bucket in the dumpster and bring in some more fire wood from the wood shed out back ? While I'm out by the wood shed the squirrel that lives in the hole in the big beech tree will be wanting me to get a couple ears of corn out of the corn crib, and while i'm doing that I'd better hurry, cause if I don't, Peabody will probably wake up and pee on the linoleum before I can get back inside and let HIM outside to "go". Yes siree, I realy love the wintertime ! (gives me something "to do" !)

I hate winter with passion. Love the long days and heat of summer. I can take advantage of my backyard and the pool. Now, in winter, I'm just confined to the house. If I could, I'd do the snowbird thing. Sometimes I seriously think about applying for transfer to our JAX plant.
