Writer's Block: It's always summer
If you could only live in one season for the rest of your life, which would you choose, and why?


This won't surprise many people, especially those who have known me for a while.

Winter. Yes, winter. Pure and simple. Why? I love the cold weather, I love the crispness of winter, I love looking at the frost and snow and seeing nature in a white world. I love the long dark nights, the fact I can put the lights on and pull the curtains at around 3:30 p.m. and not wake up to bright sunshine.

I'm not a summer person and never have been. I don't like the heat (it makes everything worse for me) and too much constant sun (as we are currently experiencing) gets me down. Also, I work on the basis you can always keep warm, but there's a limit to how much you can take off to keep cool. I hate being over warm.

I suffer from SAD in reverse of most people.

So constant winter would make me a very happy bunny.

Really? I was so expecting you to say summer *g*

I can never quite decide between winter or autumn. I certainly prefer the cold of winter but I think autumn's generally a more beautiful season.

Also, I work on the basis you can always keep warm, but there's a limit to how much you can take off to keep cool. I hate being over warm.

*nods* This has been the reasoning behind my often militant control over the air com systems at work over the years *g*. The cold people can easily add more layers but there really is a limit to what I can remove before scaring the customers. I did once change the code on the office door to prevent someone turning the temp up *whistles innocently*

*Grins* I thought you might be.

I love autumn too. My ideal with be half winter and half autumn.

See, another logical person!

*Chuckles softly* Very sensible.

That could work *nods*. I think winter up where you are is prettier than ours. We don't generally get much snow & when we do it rarely lasts longer than a week before turning into muddy slush which isn't quite so attractive *g*. The reds & golds of autumn with the temps of winter would work *nodnod*

Heh, not often I'm accused of being logical!

Abuse of power it may well have been but honestly! Wimps. I gave one of the chilly brigade my uniform fleece so I wasn't completely evil

Happy egg scoffing!

I think it could. I don't mind early spring, well normal early spring, that is. I think ours are, yes. Muddy slush is definitely not attractive. Oh, yes, that would work really well too with some overnight frost as well.

*Grins*

See, you were really kind, not evil at all.

Thank you. They were very nice and dippy *g*

Same here. :-) I love the snow, and I love winter wear. It's so much more cozy. Of course, now I have the added reason of summer bringing the threat of severe weather. Snow isn't going to make your house blow away.

*Waves to another winter fan*

That is very true, it won't. I hope all is well.

You should move to Alaska where it's dark 6 months of the year.

*Grins* I sometimes think I should.

I think I would answer the same if I had your winter instead of mine. I LOVE winter, but weeks of highs below zero (-18 or so Celsius) is not really my cup of tea.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 1st May 2011 10:51 (UTC) (Link)
That is pretty darn cold *shivers*

Mind you, I'd still take that over highs of 90+ in summer.
donutsweeper From: donutsweeper Date: 1st May 2011 14:58 (UTC) (Link)
Actually, so would I. I've always maintained that when you're cold you can always add more layers and wrap yourself in a blanket and drink tea or coffee or something. But when you're hot drinking cold stuff will just make you have to pee and there's a limit to what you can take off before you get in trouble...
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 1st May 2011 15:01 (UTC) (Link)
Well quite.

That's exactly what I've always said too - hee, another logical person *g*

Logic is so rare these days :)

Definitely no surprise there, then!

For me it has to be spring and early summer--the sense of newness, the plants and wildlife, even the erratic weather. Also the abundance of bank holidays *g*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 1st May 2011 10:52 (UTC) (Link)
*Grins* Not a lot, no.

I like early spring, under normal circumstances. I don't like the so-called early spring this year though :-(

Summer, nope. I'd abolish it if I could *g* But there are indeed a lot of Bank Holidays.
