On a personal note, I can not stand the cold, I will take warm and toasty any day.

I'm the opposite, while I don't enjoy below freezing, I can't handle anything over around 81 degrees Fahrenheit or I just want to die.

Lucky. My husband's got a naturally high body temperature, too. In fact, he's such a natural space heater that he not only has to put up with my cold feet parked on his butt all night, but all four of our cats will make themselves comfortable on various other body parts, so that Fred will wake up and be pinned down to the bed like Gulliver on the beach!:D

That's kinda me too! I figure with the cold you can always add more clothing or cuddle under more blankets, but when it's hot, you can only remove so much clothing. :p Worse is heat and humidity.

Agreed! What I really can't stand is high humidity though.

When I lived in Alaska I used to get kind of bummed out by the really short days in winter. But, at least I got to see the sunrise every morning (at 11 a.m.)! I always look forward to the equinox because that means longer days, and I do enjoy the sunshine. But, cold- bring it on! I even kind of miss 40 below ...kinda... :p

I dunno, Jacqui- your poetry did not quite move me. I'm sitting here in Omaha wondering why the heck I live in a place where my Red-foots would not survive being outside much of the year, where I have to artificially provide light so much since our days are only what, about 38 minutes long now?

Its not that I want to get away from winter altogether, I just want to try someplace other than where the main settlers stopped because the horses froze in place.

I was looking at a video of 'the gate of hell'-a burning gas crater (http://izismile.com/2009/02/05/the_gates_of_hell_22_pics_2_videos.html) and thinking "that looks warm!"

Hahaha!

I drove through Nebraska last summer, and it's a very pretty prairie state, but that humidity must penetrate right into your bones in winter...brrrr!

Your house is BEAUTIFUL. I dream of having a house like that someday, with an awesome garden similar to yours! I've never been to Colorado, as I'm stuck here in California [so unfortunate huh?] but I'd love to make a trip out there sometime =]
